RSS Sahsarkaryavah Dr Krishna Gopal appealed to the better off people of the country to come forward to serve the underprivileged and weaker sections of the society. “The financially and educationally privileged amongst us should join hands with the weaker sections of the society and take care of their needs,” he said. He gave an example of a swayamsevak, who runs a hospital for the leprosy patients. He said our philosophy is strong but we need to address such social ills so that everyone accepts it. He was addressing a select gathering of intellectuals in Bengaluru on December 8.
He said the Sangh shakha is the foundation of a swayam-sevak’s character, which helps him later in life. He said a swayamsevak gets a direction and confidence in life through the shakha. He said lakhs of people attend the Sangh shakas daily all over the country even while they are in college or in other professions.
