BHOPAL : The ongoing ‘Baudhik Varga’ (intellectual wing) meeting of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in the city seems to have given a boost to the state government’s campaign to implement the Sangh’s agenda. With senior RSS bosses in the city, the government is trying hard to create an impression that it is loyally adhering to the Hindutva ideology. Projects related to RSS ideology have suddenly come at the top of the priority list of the state government.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan, on Thursday, inspected Hindi University and also decided to allot Minto Hall (the Old Legislative Assembly building) for running classes of the University.

The rather hasty inauguration of CM Helpline too is an attempt to show that solving the common man’s problems is amongst the priorities of the state government. Important decisions related to Buddhist University at Sanchi were also taken on Friday.

In view of the RSS session, all ministers have been asked to publicise welfare schemes of the government and also to implement the suggestions of RSS men. Sources said the government may implement some important projects related to RSS ideology in the coming days.

The state government is implementing the RSS agenda in the fields of education and culture. Establishment of Hindi University, Buddhist University, War Memorial, celebrating centenary year of Raja Bhoj and Vanwasi Kalyan Yojana are some of such initiatives.

The irregularities coming to the fore in the examinations conducted by Vyapam, have brought a bad name to the government. The heat of the Vyapam scam was felt by RSS too and that is why the government is treading cautiously.  Former minister Laxmikant Sharma, who is close to RSS, is in jail in Vyapam scam. Sharma played a key role in implementation of projects inspired by the RSS ideology. The government is not leaving any stone unturned to appease RSS leaders.
