Mangaluru, Mar 18: Pattabhirama, south regional Saha Karyavaha of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Friday March 18 elaborated on the three-day Akhila Bharatiya Prathinidhi Sabha of RSS policy making body held from March 11 to 13 at Sharadapur of Nagaur in Rajasthan. The meet was chaired by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and general secretary Suresh Bhaiiyyaji Joshi and during the three days, several important decisions were taken, he said.
Addressing a press meet at Sanghaniketan here, Pattabhirama said, “Last year, there were 51,233 daily shakas in the country, and now they have increased to 56,859. There were 7,522 full time RSS volunteers in 2014, but this number doubled to 14,592 in 2015-16.
“There were 13,784 weekly meets this year (2015-16), while last year we had 12,487 weekly meets. There were 9,008 monthly meets last year, but this year the number of meets was 8,226,” he added.
“Three resolutions were passed during the Nagaur meet. They are – Need for effective care and easy access to affordable medical service; accessable, afforadble and qualitative education for all; practice of social harmony in day to day life,” he said.
He further said that during the three days, RSS discussed four issues of national interest, elaborated in a press note as follows:
“Women and Temple entry: In the last few days, some social elements inimical to the wellbeing of the society have raised an unsavoury controversy over women’s entry to temple. From the hoary past, we have been following a lofty tradition in which, in the religious and spiritual spheres, in matters of worship and piety, both men and women are naturally considered to be equal partners. Generally, both men and women are naturally permitted entry into the temples without any discrimination. Women also have been learning the Vedas and officiating as priests in temples in the natural course.
“However, because of some unfair traditions, at certain places there has been a lack of Consensus on the question of temple entry. Wherever such problems exist, attempts should be made to bring about a change of mind through proper discussions. It has to be borne in mind that such sensitive issues should not be politicised, and should be resolved only through discussion and dialogue, and not through agitations. From the point of view of social well- being, through the joint efforts of social and religious leadership, and the temple administration, attempt should be made to bring about a change in mentality at every level.
“Security agencies are target of anti-national forces: Repeated attacks being made targeting the security agencies in the last few decades, has become a big challenge to our security arrangements. Our security forces have been successful in repulsing all such attempts made by our enemies, through their valiant fight. The latest example of such attacks is the one made against our Pathankot Air Force Base recently. It is necessary to further tighten the security arrangements and make them foolproof so as to ensure that such incidents are not repeated anymore. Reviewing the efficiency of the security forces, the materials at their disposal, as also the officers in charge, necessary changes should be made. To curb activities such as Illegal migration, smuggling, Pakistan-inspired terrorism, such activities should be strictly observed for taking remedial action. With this view, it is necessary to review the infrastructural facilities to develop border areas, border security, and the materials, from time to time. It seems that Pakistan’s India policy is decided by the military establishment and not by the elected government. The incidents from Mumbai to Pathankot testify this. Presently, the whole world is concerned about the growing menace of terrorism.
“Growing communal frenzy in the country: Incidents of violence and terrorist attacks at different places in the country have become a matter of grave concern for the patriotic and peace- loving people, and the law and Order machinery. Under the pretext of small and big issues, people at different places, armed with weapons taking to the roads in large numbers and creating an atmosphere Of fear and tension, as happened in Maida, has become endemic now a days. Incidences of destruction of public and private property, attacking the police force throwing the rule of law to the winds, looting and burning of business establishments, especially those run by Hindus, had taken place. Political parties, giving up their policy of appeasement, should take such incidents seriously and cooperate to restore the law and order situation and peace. This will be possible only when political parties and the ruling parties shed their petty and parochial political interests, and make a combined effort in the right direction. No political party Or person is more important than the national security. It is the responsibility Of an efficient and Strong government to instill confidence in the people about their securit.
“University campuses become hotbed of anti-national activities: In the last few months, reports about antinational and subversive activities in certain universities, has become a matter of concern.”
On the change in RSS uniform, the press note stated: “In a major morphological change within the organization, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) announced the change in Ganavesh (uniform) from its traditional khaki shorts to wood brown or also called ‘coffee coloured’ trousers or long pants. The announcement was made by RSS Sarakaryavah Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi at the press conference at the Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS) at Nagaur, Rajasthan.
On the issue of reservation, the RSS said, “If the affluent section of the society demands reservation, then it does not sound good. This reflects a deviation from the thought of Dr B R Ambedkar and the Constitution.” stated RSS.
During the three day meeting homage was paid to eminent personalities in society and of RSS who passed away in recent months.
