Mohan Bhagwat's remarks on Army were 'misrepresented', says RSS

Mohan Bhagwat's remarks on Army were 'misrepresented', says RSS”

Sangh is neither a military nor a para military organisation, rather it is like a "parivarik sangathan" (family organisation) where discipline is practised like the Army, he said adding that workers are always happily ready to make supreme sacrifices for their country. "It is an insult to our flag because it insults every soldier who ever saluted it". The row is over Mr Bhagwat telling his organisation's workers in Bihar yesterday that RSS workers can be trained in three days to defend the country's borders if the need arose.

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday said that while Indian Army may take six to seven months to get ready for a war, his organisation can assemble an army in just three days, if necessary.

Bhagwat, who is now on a ten-day tour of Bihar and meeting farmers and activists of various wings of his organisation, however, denied that RSS is a military outfit. But we have discipline like the military.

Bihar's main Opposition party RJD took exception to Bhagwat's statement about the Army and demanded that he tender an apology immediately.

After he made the statement, several Twitter users lashed out at Bhagwat for taking a dig at the Indian Army and said that if he really believes that RSS is capable of mobilising an army in three days, he should prove it.

"This was no way a comparison between the Indian Army and the Sangh swayamsevaks but it was a comparison between general society and swayamsevaks".

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat, who is now in Bihar for 10 days, stirred a fresh controversy after he compared his organisation with the Indian Army.
