Bhopal: RSS sore with national educational policy


Bhopal: The changes which the RSS wants in the educational policy of the country are yet to be implemented at the ground level. The Sangh’s disaffection over the issue emerged clearly at the meeting of the Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal of the organisation here on Thursday. Around 350 office-bearers of the Sangh, representing 11 Kshetras and 42 Prants are taking part in the meeting.

The meeting was told that the presence of Indian languages in the country is waning day by day. Besides Hindi, the use of other Indian languages is also falling. In Maharashtra, Marathi is no longer as popular as it used to be. English is fast taking the place of regional languages. If this continues, the Indian languages would become extinct. The RSS will launch a nation-wide awareness campaign on the issue from Bhopal on October 14.

At the meeting, the office-bearers from different prants of the country presented reports on the status of the RSS in their respective regions. The meeting was told that the Sangh is running more than 34,000 shakhas all over the country and “Saptahik Milans” are being organised at more than 15,000 places. The RSS has a presence at more than 50,000 places in the country. Sarkaryavah Suresh Joshi told the Prant Pracharaks and the Sanghchalaks and Karyavahs of different Prants to work for increasing the activities of the Sangh.

The RSS has launched a programme to convey to the people that unless they link themselves with their families, they would not be able to link with the nation. He also asked the kshetra pracharaks and prant pracharaks to forge ties with the intellectual class and hold discussions with persons of different processions.

Special teams have been formed in states where attempts are being made to browbeat the RSS workers. Congregations would be organised in all prants to promote patriotism and the senior RSS leaders said that a programme should be drawn for the purpose.
