RSS organises Ram Navami processions in West Bengal
Kolkata, April 5: To strengthen its organisation in West Bengal and 'unite' Hindus, RSS and various Sangh Parivar outfits on Wednesday organised several Ram Navami processions across the state which were supported by the Bharatiya Janata Party.
In the metropolis, 22 Ram Navami processions were organized by the Sangh Parivar members. Ram Navami processions were also taken out in Siliguri, Birbhum and some other places in the state.
"The response from the common people was very good," said a senior RSS functionary.
Police said there was no report of any untoward incident from anywhere in the state regarding Ram Navami processions.
"It is a religious festival but through this we plan to unite the Hindus against the fundamentalist forces," a RSS functionary said.
"Fundamentalist forces have increased across Bengal. Several bordering districts are witnessing huge demographic imbalance due to infiltration," Bidyut Mukherjee, the organizational secretary of RSS, West Bengal and Andaman and Nicobar Islands, has said.
Expressing support to the RSS programme, state BJP president Dilip Ghosh had said, "We fully support such programme to celebrate Ram Navami. It will help people to unite against the anti-national forces and vote bank politics".
RSS had passed a resolution at its recent Coimbatore Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha expressing concern over the 'growing Jehadi activities' and the 'declining' Hindu population in West Bengal.
