RSS Sarsanghachalak Shri Mohan Bhagwat called upon the swayamsevaks for extensive work towards nation building and organising the society to take care of the issues that were being faced by the country even after 65 years of Independence. He was addressing a gathering of swayamsevaks and well-wishers in Vadodara on September 8.
Shri Bhagwat highlighted the fact that issues of safety, unity, social harmony and economics still plagued the country. He said that in a discussion with an advisor to the Union government, he was told that the country was facing a paralysis of governance. He emphasised that the country needed a society that was willing to live and die for it.
Shri Bhagwat stressed that RSS workers should build an atmosphere where each locality should have a shakha and which works extensively in the society. He also mentioned the fact that while everyone was more focused on their personal and family needs and ignored the country, the fact remained that the situation of the country eventually affected them and their well-being.
He said all the efforts to make the man happy practically failed and whatever progress the science has made stored power in the hands of a group of influential people. The world may have much hopes from Bharat, but practically our situation is not good, he said. “Our own government punishes us when we fight against the intruders in Assam,” he said indicating to the attacks of Bangladeshi Muslims on local people of Assam. He asked the swayamsevaks to undertake welfare activities across the country to reach out to the underprivileged. “Every RSS swayamsevak unit must undertake welfare work as it is the only way to reach out to the underprivileged,” he said.
