News Round-UP: Need to be extra cautious in favourable time
Panipat: “When a person is in trouble, he takes extra precautions so that there is no more trouble. But when the atmosphere is favourable, he becomes careless, which lends him in new troubles. Since there is a favourable atmosphere in the country today for the swayamsevaks, they need to be extra cautious so that the energy is not wasted in any unnecessary activity,” said RSS Sarsanghachalak Shri Mohan Bhagwat, while addressing a gathering of swayamsevaks at Arya School Grounds on November 18. Kurukshetra Vibhag Sanghachalak Dr Gopal Krishna and Panipat District Sanghachalak Shri Anup Kumar also shared the dais.
Shri Bhagwat said welfare of the entire world is the goal of Bharat. We have seen many ups and downs during the history. We were at the pinnacle of glory, but we also faced slavery. No foreign power could defeat us through might, but by taking advantage of our differences. Therefore, we have to educate every person of the society. “Today the society trusts the Sangh swayamsevaks. But it did not happen so easily. Earlier, they were opposed, but now the society has started trusting us. We are moving ahead to achieve our goal,” he added.
During his three day tour, the Sarsanghachalak addressed a meeting of Sangh Pracharaks from Delhi, Haryana, Punjab, Chandigarh, J&K and Himachal Pradesh. They included Zilla and Vibhag Pracharaks and also the Pracharaks engaged in the activities of social harmony, Samarasata, Parivar Prabodhan, Gram Vikas and Gau Samrakshan. He stressed to accelerate the work of Parivar Prabodhan, social harmony, cow protection and village development, because they will
accelerate the desired change in the society.
He stressed the need on study and dialogue for all the workers. “Those in society who believe in betterment of the society and have the spirit of working together should be taken along,” he said. Sah Sarkaryavah Shri Suresh Soni, Akhil Bharatiya Sah Prachar Pramukh Shri J Nandakumar, RSS National Executive Member Shri Ashok Beri and Shri Mahavirji also

India needs value based education

trouble. He said every citizen of the country needs to dream for highest development of the country. Therefore, the youth of the nation should live a meaningful life, which has an objective. “Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose passed ICS exam in the age of 23. His parents thought about happy and prosper life for him after becoming an administrative officer. But as Netaji reached home, he told his parents that from tomorrow he would start working for independence of the nation. This type of commitment and dedication to the nation should be in the hearts of the youth,” Shri Arun Kumar said.

New Delhi: Bharatiya Kisan Sangh (BKS) has suggested the Government of India to allow the Cooperative Banks and agencies to exchange Rs 500 and 1,000 notes so that the farmers can get new currency without difficulty.

That is why the BKS has suggested the Government to ease the problems of the farmers,” a statement issued by the Kisan Sangh general secretary Shri Badrinarayan Chaudhary.

The conference passed a resolution blaming the CPM-led LDF government for its move to demolish the current, effective three-tier co-operative system prevailing in Kerala, that is, Primary, Zilla and State level. Now, the LDF regime’s design is to make it a two-tier system, that is at Primary and State level. This is to avoid proper audit and transparency.

dominated movement. Sahakar Bharati is built upon the primary co-operative societies. Two year long programmes in connection with the birth centenary of the late Lakshman Rao Inamdar, founder of nationalist co-operative movement are being carried out throughout the country.
