RSS lauds people for supporting 'Chakka Jaam'
Hubli, Nov 3 (UNI) Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) today lauded the people for their support during 'Chakka Jaam' agitation in protest against the Sethusamudram Shipping Channel Project (SSCP).
In a resolution passed at its National Working Committee Meeting at Garag village near here, RSS said ''Lord Rama was a historic persona and his journey to Lanka was well chronicled. There were vivid descriptions about the building of the bridge,'' it said.
The organisation was also critical of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi for ''wantonly hurting the Hindu sentiments and trying to destroy social harmony.'' The Working Committee demanded that Ram Setu, which was reverred by the entire nation, should be declared as a national heritage monument.
It was found that the SSCP was not economically viable and did not make any 'navigational sense', the organisation said.
In another lengthy resolution the RSS also took exception to recommendations of National Commission for Religious Linguistic Minorities and demanded that the Scheduled Caste status must be 'completely delinked from religion'.
Reservation to convert was a threat to Schedule Castes, the resolution added..
