Orbit is another Hindu first for Britain: British PM David Cameron

LONDON: British prime minister David Cameronhas described the Arcelor Mittal Orbit, a giant steel tower built for next year’s London Olympics, as “another Hindu first for Britain” . The tower was completed on Friday.

“Britain’s biggest ever work of public art is, of course, the Olympic Park sculpture, designed byAnish Kapoor, one of our most successful artists, and funded by Lakshmi Mittal, one of our most successful business leaders,” Cameron said while referring to Hindu contributions to Britain in 2011.

The £23 million Orbit, Britain’s tallest sculpture, was conceived in a conference centre’s restroom, where

Mittal, the India-born steel tycoon, and London mayor Boris Johnson bumped into each other.
Johnson, a former journalist calls the 115m high piece of swirling metal a “hubble bubble” . Some see it as a twisted Eiffel Tower after a nuclear attack; others as a catastrophic collision between two cranes. Its double-decker viewing gallery and cafe are bound to become a major attraction during the Olympics . The lift up to these facilities , too, will wind its way to them, rather than going straight up.

The Orbit received a hostile and confused reaction at first; yet it has been devised as a sustainable piece of art that will live on for decades , perhaps centuries, after the Olympics. The final structure is 50m shorter than originally planned, as the project had to be delivered strictly within budget. Environmentalists would be pleased that 65% of the raw material used was recycled from scrap lying about at 38 ArcelorMittal’s plants around the world. It was then rolled and cut by computer-guided machinery and re-constructed like pieces of a massive Meccano.


Maharashtra Congress Minister Shivajirao Moghe praises RSS for its activities

NAGPUR: Whether it was a slip of tongue or his conviction, Nagpur district guardian minister Shivajirao Moghe, a Congress leader, made his party colleagues wince when he praised theRashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) for its activities. Congress has regularly blamed RSS for spreading communal discord. Of late, party general secretary Digvijay Singh has been charging RSS with Hindu terrorism. In this backdrop, Moghe’s statement is quite puzzling.

The Congress minister made these remarks at the unveiling function of state of Nagpur’s founder Raje Bakht Buland Shah at Vidhan Bhavan Square. It was an all party function with leaders of BJP, Congress, NCP and Shiv Sena sharing the dais. Chief minister Prithviraj Chavan, his Jharkhand counterpart Arjun Munda and BJP national chief Nitin Gadkari, Congress ministers Nitin Raut and Rajendra Mulak, and NCP minister Anil Deshmukh were the prominent dignitaries. While Congress and BJP tried to take credit for erection of the Gond king’s statue, except for former mayor Maya Iwnate, they refrained from criticizing each other.

Moghe, while stressing on the importance of the city, said that several movements beneficial to the country had started from the city. These included RSS founded by Dr K B Hedgewar and Dr B R Ambedkar adopting Buddhist religion. “Even though RSS conducts its activities all over the country, its headquarters is in Nagpur,” he said.

Congress’ embarrassment did not end here. Moghe flayed the last two chief ministers – both from Congress — for stopping the grant to Nagpur. “I thank Nitin Gadkari for sanctioning an annual grant of Rs 20 crore for Nagpur, when he was the guardian minister. When our government came to power, it increased the grant to Rs 25 crore. Unfortunately, the last two chief ministers have stopped the grant,” he said.

The grant was stopped by Vilasrao Deshmukh in his second term. His successor Ashok Chavan continued Deshmukh’s policy. Moghe did not criticize the incumbent CM Prithviraj Chavan, who was present in the function.

CM Chavan, when asked to comment on Moghe’s statement later, said that he had increased Nagpur district’s allocation in district planning council (DPC) funds from Rs 120 crore to Rs 170 crore. “Nagpur needs a lot more than Rs 25 crore. We will give it,” was all he said.

All the dignitaries praised Bakht Buland Shah but BJP leaders did not give much credit to Congress leaders, even though the statue was their baby. Ex-mayor Maya Iwnate blamed Congress government in NMC for ignoring the project. “The state government had sanctioned the funds in 2002 but the project did not move forward till 2007 when I became the mayor. I wanted to lay the foundation stone of the project befor completing by term (2009 end) but state government departments made us run from pillar to post,” Iwnate said, and then went to describe the contribution of all local BJP leaders to the project in detail without giving any credit to Congress leaders.

Gadkari did not praise any Congress leader except leader of opposition Vikas Thakre. However, Moghe gave credit to all local leaders including BJP MLA Devendra Fadnavis. He said that the project was finally cleared by the state cabinet in December 2010. CM Chavan, commenting on allegations of state government apathy, said that the project was delayed as a suitable spot was not available.

Dr Subramanian Swamy files complaint against Soniya Gandhi on Communal Violence Bill


Dr Subramanian Swamy , President of Janata Party, A-77, Nizamuddin East, Sector 18, Rohini,   New Delhi-110013:                            

SHO/Insp: D.P. Singh, Sector 18, Rohini, Crime Branch, New Delhi.
Re: Registering of FIR u/s 153A & B, 295A & 505(2) of Indian Penal Code. 
Dated: October 24, 2011.

1.         In public interest I am sending by Courier service a complaint in my name against Chairperson Ms.
Sonia Gandhi of National Advisory Council, which has its office at 2 Motilal Place, New Delhi-110011, Tel: 23062582, and also against unnamed other members of the said NAC for committing offences of propagating hate against the Hindu community of India by circulating for enacting as law a Draft Bill described as PREVENTION OF COMMUNAL AND TARGETED VIOLENCE BILL OF 2011. This Draft Bill has been posted on the NAC official website, is dated July 21, 2011 and sent for adoption by Parliament. That this 2011 Draft Bill is mischievous in content of targeting the Hindu community, malafide, unreasonable and prejudicial to public order, is apparent from the second section of Explanatory Note [Annexed herein] to the Draft Bill titled “Key Provisions of the Bill”, thereby inciting crimes against the Hindu community with impunity, and thus committing offences u/s 153A & B, 295A and 505(2) of the Indian Penal Code.

2.         The UPA Government in December, 2005 had introduced earlier a Draft Bill [2005] in the Parliament described as THE COMMUNAL VIOLENCE (PREVENTION, CONTROL AND REHABILITATION OF VICTIMS)  BILL (2005).

3.         The Draft Bill however did not find favour with any Party.  Leaders of several political parties felt that the Draft Bill provided sweeping powers to the Central Government thus undermining the authority of the State Governments.  But the most vocal opposition to this draft Bill came from the Muslim, Christian and so called secular quarters.  Their contention was just the opposite of what the political leaders were saying.  The view of Muslim and Christian groups was that the 2005 Draft Bill was “completely toothless”.  They demanded that the powers of managing communal violence be vested in non-government actors and make governments and administration at all levels accountable them for communal violence.

4.         The All India Christian Council was in the forefront of this campaign against the 2005 Draft Bill as being “too weak”.  In a letter written to the Prime Minister, Ms Sonia Gandhi, herself a Christian, through  the AICC had  conveyed to the PM the Christian Council concerns about the  2005 Draft Bill, and then revised the same as the 2009 Draft Bill.

5.         The Muslim bodies too joined in the protest campaign against the draft as being too weak.  They wanted provisions to make police and civil administration and state authorities “accountable” to public bodies.  The Joint Committee of Muslim Organizations for Empowerment (JCMOE) made the demand on behalf of these organizations.  JCMOE also urged the government to convene a meeting of leaders of

“targeted communities” to note their views on the Bill as follows:

“The Bill does not make police or administration or state authorities accountable and provide for timely and effective intervention by the National Human Rights Commission, if the communal violence spreads or continues for weeks, or by the Central Government under Articles 355 and 356 of the Constitution, duly modified.  On the other hand, ironically, the Bill grants more power to the local police and administration, which, more often than not acts in league with the rioters by declaring the area as ‘communally disturbed area’ JCMOE statement said.

6.         It is interesting to note that these two statements, the Muslim and the Christian, come at around the same time as though they were premeditated.  They probably were.

7.         From their arguments in opposition to the Draft Bill, it is clear that they wanted a Bill that would consider only the Christians and Muslims as the “generally targeted” victims of communal violence; and that the word ‘communal violence’ be re-defined in such a way that only the Muslims and Christians are treated as victims and Hindus as predators, and that the local police and administration, including the State administration, considered hand-in-glove with the perpetrators of violence. Hence the Bill should empower the Central Government to invoke Art. 355 and 356 of the Constitution against any state in the event of such communal violence.

8.         Since the Prevention of Communal Violence Bill (2005) does not discriminate between the perpetrators and victims of communal violence on religious grounds and also it does not envisage the State administration as committed in preventing such violence, these groups wanted the Bill to be withdrawn.

9.         The National Advisory Council  (NAC) was re-constituted in 2009 by the UPA Government again under the chairmanship of Ms. Sonia Gandhi. The UPA Government promptly handed over the re-drafting of the Bill to the newly constituted NAC and asked it to come up with a fresh draft.

10.       The basic communally provocative premise of the re-drafted Bill is that: a) there is a non-dominant group in every State in the form of religious and linguistic minority which is always a victim of violence; b) the dominant majority (usually Hindus) in the State is always the perpetrator of violence; and c) the State administration is, as a rule, biased against the non-dominant group.

11.       The object of the re-drafted Bill thus was the basic premise of the NAC that the majority community – read Hindus – are the perpetrators of communal violence in India and the minority – read Muslims and Christians – are the victims, clearly  is  incitement of religious strife.

12.       What is more important is to conclude is that in all cases of communal and targeted violence, dominant religious and linguistic group at the State level is always the perpetrator and the other the victims.  Similarly the conclusion that the State machinery is invariably and always biased against the non-dominant group is a gross misstatement of the sincerity and commitment of millions of people who form State administration in the country.

13.       This dangerous premise is the incitement of communal strife in this Bill.

14.       One can safely conclude that the script writers of this Bill are themselves blinded with religious
biases.  In India communal violence happens mostly because of politico-communal reasons.  In many instances, as documented by several Commissions of Inquiry, it is the so-called minority group that triggers the trouble.  We hence need laws that can prevent such violence irrespective of whoever perpetrates it.  To argue that since the administration is always biased in favour of the dominant group we need acts that are biased in favour of the non-dominant group is imprudent and puerile.

15.       The final Draft is available on the NAC website now.  One is not sure when the same will be placed before the Parliament.  However, a close scrutiny of the Draft is essential to understand the serious implications of and threats from it to our national integration, social harmony and Constitutional Federalism.

16.       This Bill when it becomes an Act will apply to whole country except the State of Jammu and Kashmir.  Note that J&K is one of the two States in India (excluding the North East and other tiny UTs) that has Hindus as minority – the ‘non-dominant group’ according to this Bill. Punjab is the other State where the Sikhs constitute the majority, while in the rest of the entire country it is the Hindus who constitute ‘dominant group’ and by implication the perpetrators of communal violence, according to this Draft Bill.

17.       The mischief in the drafting primarily lies in the ‘Definitions’ part contained in Art.3 of the first chapter.  Art. 3 (c ) defines Communal and Targeted Violence as under:-
“Communal and targeted violence” means and includes any act or series of acts, whether spontaneous or planned, resulting in injury or harm to the person and or property knowingly directed against any person by virtue of his or her membership of any group”.

18.       The mischief is centered round the word ‘Group’. Art 3(e) defines what constitutes a ‘Group’.
“Group” means a religious or linguistic minority, in any State in the Union of India, or Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes within the meaning of clauses of the Constitution of India;

19.       Having thus established that the individual member of the Minority community is always considered a part of the Minority group the Draft Bill goes on to add several detrimental clauses subsequently.  Art.3 (f) defines ‘Hostile environment against a group’ thus:

“Hostile environment against a group” means an intimidating or coercive environment that is created when a person belonging to any group as defined under this Act, by virtue of his or her membership of that group, is subjected to any of the following acts:

(i)                 boycott of the trade or business of such person or making it otherwise difficult for him or her to earn a living; or

(ii)               publicly humilitate such person through exclusion from public services, including education, health and transportation of any act of indignity; or

(iii)             deprive or threaten to deprive such person of his or her fundamental rights;

(iv)             force such person to leave his or her home or place of ordinary residence or livlihood without his or her express consent; or

(v)               any other act, whether or not it amounts to an offence under this Act, that has the purpose or effect of creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive environment.”
Note the Clause (v) – ‘Any other act, whether or not it amounts to an offence under this Act’.  The intention here seems to be to make anything and everything an offence, even if it doesn’t come under any definition of an offence.  It is clear that the entire definition of ‘hostile environment’ is malafide.
Clause (k) defines who is a ‘victim’. Here the draft makers are very explicit:
“victim” means any person belonging to a group as defined under this Act, who has suffered physical, mental, psychological or monetary harm or harm to his or hr property as a result of the commission of any offence under this Act, and includes his or her relatives, legal guardian and legal heirs, wherever appropriate;

“Victim” can only be belonging to a ‘group’ as defined under this Act.  And the group as defined under this Act is the Minority – the ‘non-dominant group’.  That means this act will consider only the Minority as the victims.  And he or she will become a ‘victim if he or she has suffered physical, mental, psychological or monetary harm….’ Now, physical harm is measurable, mental harm is difficult to gauge, but how on earth  can anyone define ‘psychological harm’?  The Bill does not define it.  Then how can be so-called ‘psychological harm’ be one of the reasons for victimhood?

Similarly, Art. 4 (a) states as follows:

4. Knowledge. – A person is said to knowingly direct any act against a person belonging to a group by virtue of such person’s membership of that group where;

(a)    he or she means to engage in the conduct against a person he or she knows belongs to that group;

20. Art 7 of the draft Bill defines ‘sexual assault’.  It is by far the most widely covered definition that is very much needed to protect women from becoming targets of sexual violence as part of communal violence.  But against the problem is that this definition is applicable to the women belonging to Minority group and women of the Majority community cannot benefit from it.  Secondly, it also states that in a case of communal violence sex by consent also can be construed as a crime.

21.       Patriotic Indians now realize that the present draft Bill is a standing proof that neo Jinnah-ism – the belief that the minority is perpetually oppressed in India by the Hindu majority – is still poisoning our minds even today by mischievous minds..

22.       The present Draft Bill will only promote disharmony. With these kind of laws the LeTs and Hujls across the border need not have to promote terrorism in our territory anymore.  All that they need to do is to encourage a minor communal riot and they can achieve what they want – huge rift between the Majority and Minority communities.

23.       Hence, the NAC, with Ms Sonia Gandhi as Chairperson, and other members have jointly committed offences under IPC Sections 153A & B, 295A, and 505(2).

24.       It is significant that even well known persons of secular credentials have condemned this Bill as divisive. The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Ms. J. Jayalalitha has in a Press Release dated July 29, 2011 [Annexed] has concluded that “the remedy sought [in the Draft Bill] to be provided against communal and targeted violence is worse than the disease itself”.

25.      Therefore, this complaint be taken as a basis to register an FIR and conduct investigation into the communal mentality of the NAC chairperson Ms. Sonia Gandhi and other members and take necessary action under the law to prosecute the offenders under the cited sections of the IPC.


Press Statement by Dr SUBRAMANIAN SWAMY on complaint against Sonia Gandhi

Dr Subramaniam_Swamy_

Yesterday I posted to the SHO of the Crime Branch of Delhi Police, located in Rohini, Delhi a written complaint for registering a FIR against Ms.Sonia Gandhi, Chairperson of the National Advisory Commission (NAC) and 14 other unnamed persons who are members of the NAC.

The offences alleged to have been committed arises from a draft Bill prepared by the NAC and known as Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill of 2011.  This was widely circulated as also posted on the NAV website.

The charge is that Ms.Sonia Gandhi and her NAC members have by writing and drafting such a Bill for adoption by Parliament have incited the Christians and Muslims to attack the Hindus by rioting and mayhem of rape promising legislative protection to them as a “group”, and giving immunity under the provisions of the Bill when enacted, from prosecution even if the said “group” attacks the “dominant” Hindu community.

Hence, Ms.Sonia Gandhi and the members of the NAC are culpable under Section 153A & B, 295A and 505 (2) of the IPC.

If the Delhi Police does not register this FIR by November 10th, I shall approach the court to seek directions to the Delhi Police to register the FIR.

Bill to Kill Secularism- Arindam Chaudhuri

Arindam Chaudhuri

The NAC-drafted Communal Violence Bill is a recipe for unmitigated disaster. In the guise of promotingcommunal harmony it promotes rank communalism. In the guise of protecting minorities, it attacks Hindu rights. This Bill will strike at the very foundation of liberty and legitimise criminal misdeeds of Muslims. It must not become law

The road to hell is almost always paved with noble intentions. In the Indian democracy, this has been proven true a countless number of times. I am afraid we shall be headed yet again towards hellish times if a new policy that is being currently debated manages to become law, thanks to the super secular denizens of India whose intensity and range of noble intentions usually matches the mayhem that the same noble intentions often trigger.

I am talking about the well-intentioned economists, sociologists, activists and assorted jholawallah types who are convinced that it is their divine right to advice the UPA regime on all sorts of policy issues. Right at the top of this pyramid of do-gooders is the National Advisory Council which is headed by Ms Sonia Gandhi. Virtually all the members of NAC have impeccable records and reputations when it comes to their commitment towards the aam admi of India. Let me also be very clear in stating that a lot of credit for path-breaking policy changes like the Right to Information Act, the NREGA and the Right to Education Act should go to the NAC. It is also wonderful to see members of the NAC valiantly battle it out against a callous, insensitive and cruel Government when it comes to implementing the Right to Food Act.

In each of these above-mentioned cases, the men and women with noble intentions have sought to protect and defend the rights of victims — usually the poor and the downtrodden of India who get only lip service from the Government. And now, this group of people has set out to protect and defend the rights of another set of victims — I am talking about the victims of communal violence. Nobody will dispute the fact that communal violence has been a blot on the Indian democracy. Similarly, nobody will dispute the fact that those have usually been the minorities who have borne the brunt of communal violence, even though provocation often comes from both sides of the divide.

So to continue with their noble mission to protect and defend victims, members of the NAC have given the green signal to the Communal Violence Bill — officially labeled as the Prevention of Communal and Targeted Violence Bill — that seeks to protect minorities from murder, mayhem and worse during communal riots.

When I read newspaper reports about this proposed law and the objections raised by politicians like Mr Arun Jaitley, my first reaction was that the BJP was probably trying to play the Hindutva card. But I was speechless with shock when I actually managed to go through some provisions and clauses of the Bill. Most newspapers, magazines and TV channels have been politically correct and have sheepishly and squeamishly reported about the problems with the Draft Bill. But I have never believed in being politically correct. And so, let me say in plain words what the implications of the proposed law are.

If this Draft Bill becomes law, it will become constitutionally accepted that only Hindus cause riots; and that Muslims, Christians and other minorities can never be held responsible for riots because the definition of the term ‘group’, which is the backbone of this Draft Bill, is made totally in such a manner that the majority, that is the Hindus, will be at the receiving end of the stick. Thus, if this Draft Bill becomes law, the Indian Constitutionwill accept that only Hindus incite and provoke religious hatred and denigrate other religions; and that Muslims and Christians can never do that. If this Bill becomes law, all the accused in the Gujarat riots will be culpable and be sentenced, while all those responsible for the death of train passengers at Godhra would be presumed to have harboured only goodwill for Hindus. If this Bill becomes law, only Hindus will be tried, convicted and sentenced for communal violence and incitement of communal hatred because the Constitution will refuse to accept that Muslims and Christians are capable of violence and hatred. If this Bill becomes law, any anonymous complainant can file a police case against a Hindu for inciting communal hatred — and the police will have to register it as a non-bailable offence. The accused — who would be arrested — would not even have the right to know who the complainant is. And the accused Hindu will virtually be presumed to be guilty unless he or she can prove his or her innocence.

A Hindu activist who complains against fanatic Christian missionaries (Believe me, there are many of them out there) converting tribals through inducements and bribes will be sent behind bars; the Christian missionary who openly calls Hindus ‘heathens’ or ‘kafirs’ and tramples upon idols of Hindu gods and goddesses will be forever found innocent by the Indian Constitution.

That was as far as Hindus are concerned. But it is not just about them. Every other clause in the Bill seems flawed. The definition of ‘Hate Propaganda’ is designed to give the Government draconian powers and curb freedom of speech. The Bill seems to be made on the basis of a dictatorial approach which assumes the accused guilty until proven innocent, and this is totally unconstitutional. Then, of course, I talk about the formation of a ‘National Authority’, a new power center for harassment.

So, now you see where noble intentions can lead up to. I have no doubt whatsoever that activists, do-gooders and others of their ilk, right up to the members of the NAC, genuinely want to protect minorities from communal riots and violence. I have also no doubt that a majority of them — I am deliberately not saying all of them — harbour a peculiar and inexplicable hatred towards all aspects of Hinduism. But ask yourself honestly: Is this Bill going to promote communal harmony in the country? I would have simply laughed out loudly and derisively if the matter had not been not so serious and potentially devastating for India. And frankly, how does one define minorities? There are many districts and towns in India where Muslims or Christians outnumber Hindus. Who will then be blamed for communal violence and riots? If one were to suppose there are riots in two towns in Uttar Pradesh — one with a Muslim majority and one with a Hindu majority… What will the police do in both these cases? Arrest only Hindus because the Indian law will state so?

Moving beyond the Bill and the disastrous impact it will have on India if it becomes law, I must also point out one thing that is peculiar to the Congress and the Gandhi family in particular. They have this strange tendency to depend on and promote advisors and Kitchen Cabinets — a move that has often cost them dearly in political terms. Mrs Indira Gandhi had a series of advisers who came from a non-political background. Rajiv Gandhi had many bright advisers who had no interest in electoral politics. And look at what they did first with the Shah Bano case, then the Ayodhya case and finally the Bofors issue. I fear Ms Gandhi and Mr Rahul Gandhi are in danger of committing the same mistake. It was Shah Bano and Ayodhya during the Rajiv era that eventually propelled the BJP to power in New Delhi. It could be the Communal Violence Bill in the Sonia and Rahul era that could yet again hand over the keys of New Delhi to the BJP.

I will sum up by saying that communal harmony cannot be brought about with such discriminatory Bills. It can be brought about by providing access to education and equal opportunities for a dignified living. It’s time the Government thinks about such methods instead of passing such draconian Bills or for that matter increasing internal security budgets, etc, to fight the menace of naxalism. Access to equitable policies and right to a dignified living will take care of most of the problems that the Government seems so clueless about.

Justice KT Thomas opposes Communal & Targeted violence bill, Terms it ‘Divisive’

Source: News Bharati     

Former Supreme Court Justice KT ThomasChennai, October 23 : Former Supreme Court Justice KT Thomas has out-rightly rejected the proposed Communal and Targeted Violence Bill, terming it as ‘divisive and against the constitution of India’. He was addressing a symposium on the proposed ‘Communal & Targeted Violence Bill’ held in Chennai today.

Addressing the
 Advocates for Dharma in Chennai on 23 October 2011 , Justice Thomas asked, “Does this piece (of draft) deserves to be even called as a Bill ?; Yes, for convenience purpose we can use the term Bill, its merely a nomenclature , that’s all.”
He said further, “The integration is the founding stone of the Indian constitution. What was India before the Constitution? The Constitution achieved integration and the proposed Bill wanted to reverse what it achieved.”

He derided the framers of the Bill, the members of the National Advisory Council, headed by Shrimati Sonia Gandhi and said, “The framers of the proposed Bill have made their own mockery and by doing so, they have shown the world what they are!” 

He further asked, “Should we take this proposed bill seriously and debate like this? It does not deserve even to be debated and taken to be seriously.”

Justice Thomas said that the tiniest of minority in India, the Parsees, has no concern, they are assured of their individuality. Another minority is irreligious people who are seven lakhs, according to 2001 census, they are too are assured of their dignity and freedom of expression.

He further added, “the secularism is not related with religion. It is related to human dignity. The prevalent notion of secularism is wrongly interpreted.”

“Furthermore,” he continued, “even if the parliament passes the communal and targeted violence bill, the Supreme Court will not uphold it. It will be thrown out into a dustbin. It is in the embryo of the framers and will never see the light of the day.”
Justice Thomas reminded audience that, a month ago he shared the dais with RSS chief Dr. Mohan Bhagwat,and said he was a born and practicing Christian. He received several offensive mails including from one of the members of the National Advisory Council (NAC), which is headed by Sonia Gandhi. He clarified that, on the advice of his wife, he ignored the hate mail by the NAC member.

He was briefing the media of Bangalore about the proceedings and discussions of recently held 3-day meeting of the Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal (ABKM) of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), from October 14 to 16 at Gorakhpur Uttarapradesh.

Speaking on the occasion Hosabale told, “Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal, has passed a major  resolution on National Security. ABKM is gravely concerned about the indifferent attitude of the Government towards growing tensions along the borders; rising incidents of encouragement to separatism and terrorism from across the borders; emerging challenges across aerial and oceanic borders; and increasing threats in the international seas and outer space”.

“In flood affected areas of Orissa, regions of Earthquake at Sikkim, hundreds of RSS Swayamsevaks were  involved in rehabilitation activities. Uthkal Seva Samithi, Seva Bharati and several onther co-organisations are doing their services to the victims of these natural calamities. RSS Swayamsevaks reached these spots soon and within 12hours and they initiated the rehabilitation process” said Dattaji.

 150th birth anniversary of Vivekananda

“It will be the 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda on January 12 of 2013. Hence Sangh has decided to launch massive nationwide Centenary celebrations on Vivekananda from January 12, 2012 on 3 issues. First, a compilation of various social organisations which are working in small and large scales across India so that a commonness will be achieved and this task will be headed by Swami Vivekananda Kendra of Kanyakumari. Vivekananda, even after 150years, still an inspiration for social works” says Dattaji. “Secondly, Vivekanda and his thoughts on Women, and Third Vivekananda and Rural India. Vivekananda was very much keen on Rural development specifically the upliftment of poor and backwards. His quotes like ‘Daridra Devobhava’ symbolises his in deeper concerns on common man,” Dattaji opinioned.

“At the very spot where in 1893 September 11 Vivekananda’s historic speech took place at Chicago, we are planning for a permanent multimedia presentation which could give basic information on Life sketch and contributions of Vivekananda. His thoughts on universal brotherhood and others can be taken to a larger scale for new generation”  said Dattaji.

RSS calls to ban Chinese goods

RSS Joint Secretary further said “In ABKM, we discussed many issues on national security. RSS feels the borders of the nation should be highly secured. As per reports in last one year, more than 70 times there were incidents of exchange of bullets by Pakistan at the borders. Osama Bin Laden was hiding in Pak, Dawood is hiding in Pak according to reports, and hence it is clear that Pakistan is highly supportive for terror activities. Recent Delhi High court blast is a fresh example”

“China is a major threat, it is eyeing Indian geography from all four corners. Through Burma, Trincomalee, Sri Lanka and Gadwar  Harbour of Pakitan, China selectively planned for India lands. The strategy of China is Encircling, Encouraging and Engaging. China has already captured 38000 sq kms of areas. Now it is claiming for 90,000 sqkm of land. China will make this as an International issue, and may take Indian Land areas near the Chinese border. Already China is welcoming citizens of Arunachal Pradesh even without Visa; so that mentally they can influence people of Arunachal as if they are belong to China. Hence as George Fernandes said China is Indeed our threat no 1” said Dattaji.

‘China is preparing its national army stronger day by day. Nuclear submarine war heads was recently developed by China, which India doesn’t have . The Country which attacked India 50years ago, may repeat the same after 50 years, is an alarm for us’

“RSS calls the public to ban the use of Chinese products which has a large scale impact on Indian economy in multiple ways. Chinese goods like toys, electronic devices, utensils, even  Idols of Hindu God like Ganesh are in Market. Hence we need to promote our Industrial growth rather than buying Chinese goods”, says Hosabale.

“Border issue with Bangladesh is indeed a cause of concern since decades. But recent visit of our Prime Minister to Bangla has increased the risk of losing more land to Bangladesh due a weak border strategy. There are 111 enclaves belonging to Bangladesh in India and 51 enclaves belongs to India in Bangladesh. 

As a matter agreement on retaining these enclaves within respective territories of countries, the loss will be for India in which India will lose its land more than 10,000 acres. if Infiltration is very high, citizenship will be a problem. Bangladeshis are illegally penetrating to India, gradually they are becoming Citizens of India by obtaining all civic facilities. Hence RSS expresses deeper concerns over Bangla Infiltration.

Unfortunately, the central Government is not acting enough to solve these threats. RSS will launch a nationwide awareness campaign about these elements disturbing national security”, said Dattaji.

RSS to launch campaign from Nov 1st till Nov 20th

RSS to launch campaign from November 1st till November 20th against the proposed Communal and Targeted Violence Prevention Bill-2011 which is well fabricated to appease minority. RSS already condemned and clarified the stand on the bill saying that it is an anti-Hindu Bill.

BSY made RSS embarrassed:

Answering to the questions from Journalists on Former Chief Minister of Karnataka B S Yeddyurappa,  Dattatreya Hosabale said, “The recent episode of Yeddyurappa is embarrassing to the RSS. Whenever BSY visited Sangh Headquarters, Keshavakupa, RSS Senior Functionaries advised him as he was a Swayamsevak.If he has not taken those advises seriously, it is wrong to blame RSS. If in a class of the 2 students one scores 90 marks and one scores 35 marks, we can’t blame the teacher for poor performance”

Responding to a question on RSS control over BJP, Dattaji Said, “RSS will never advise any political party. It just advises the Swayamsevaks in it. RSS will not involve in any party mechanisms and will never take decision on formation of Cabinet or on naming any person for ministerial post. RSS has no membership, anyone can become Sangh Swayamsevak, and hence there is no question of suspending anyone from Sangh. RSS is involved in character building and creating awareness among countrymen”.

Sri M Venkataram, Karnataka Dakshin Pranth Sanghachalak, Sri Chandrashekara Bhandary, senior RSS Functionary, Sri Vadiraj, RSS Pranth Prachar Pramukh were present during this press meet.

Bangalore, October 22: Answering to the questions from Journalists on few BJP politicians who were part of the government and were known Swayamsevaks, now behind bars for corruption charges,Dattatreya Hosabale told, “Indeed these incidents made us embarrassed. We advise our swayamsevaks when they need. Whenever BSY visited Sangh Headquarters, Keshavakrupa, RSS Senior Functionaries advised him as he was a Swayamsevak. If he has not taken those advises seriously, it is wrong to blame RSS. If in a class of the 2 students one scores 90 marks and one scores 35 marks, we can’t blame the teacher for poor performance”

Responding to a question on RSS control over BJP, Dattaji Said, “RSS will never advise any political party. It just advises the Swayamsevaks in it. RSS will not involve in any party mechanisms and will never take decision on formation of Cabinet or on naming any person for ministerial post. RSS has no membership, anyone can become Sangh Swayamsevak, and hence there is no question of suspending anyone from Sangh. RSS is involved in character building and creating awareness among countrymen”.

Dattaji added, “RSS will never support any corrupt leader. In March 2011, in a supreme meeting of RSS held at Puttur, Sangh has passed a resolution to fight against corruption. In that we have clearly pointed that we will support all forms of campaigns by anyone against corruption. Our Swayamsevaks were the part of Anna Hazare campaign also, across the nation. Today, corruption is a major social issue, needs a great reform in social life as far as corruption is concerned.”

Sri M Venkataram, Karnataka Dakshin Pranth Sanghachalak, Sri Chandrashekara Bhandary, senior RSS Functionary, Sri Vadiraj, RSS Pranth Prachar Pramukh were present during this press meet.

RSS expresses support for Tibetan cause: ANI report

Indresh Kumar RSS Senior Functionary

Dharamshala, Oct 22 (ANI): Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leader Indresh Kumar has said that Tibet was never a part of China and the Indian government should reconsider its decision and review its policies concerning Tibet.

Kumar told the media here that after taking over Tibet, China had also grabbed the Himalayan region.
Kumar said that Tibet must be looked as a distinct country and not as a part and parcel of China.’
He said: “We appeal to Tibet to take a decision if it wants independence or not. Tibet has to decide on that, but we support them”.

He added: “If Tibet was a part of China, then the entire world knows the place by the country’s name and not a region. If someone is from Himachal, Uttarakhand or any other place like Manipur, Nagaland or Kerala, then no one says he is from Kerala, but they say he is from India. “.

China has ruled Tibet with an iron fist since Communist troops marched into Tibet in 1950. It claims its rule has bought much needed development to a poor and backward region.

An estimated 80,000 Tibetans along with their spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, had arrived in India in 1959 after an unsuccessful uprising against the Chinese rule. (ANI)

RSS expresses concern over govt attitude on North-East

GUWAHATI, Oct 20 – The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, Uttar Assam on Thursday expressed grave concern over the indifferent attitude of the government towards growing tension along the borders, and rising incidents of encouragement to separatism and terrorism from across the borders.
The Sangh said that India and particularly the North East faced threat from China that was constantly exerting military pressure on the borders.

“Apart from abetting terrorism and separatism from across the borders, China’s active support to the insurgent groups in the North-East is a direct challenge to the unity and integrity of the country,” said the Sangh.

On the other hand, the Sangh while slamming the government for the Indo-Bangla land lead said that this decision has been taken without any consideration to national interests.

“Handing over of several thousand acres of our territory in Assam and West Bengal to Bangladesh under the pretext that it was already under the latter’s control can’t be justified on any account. It is unwise and unacceptable to cede more territory and get less in the name of territorial exchange. This would result in a large number of Bangladeshi Muslims in CoochBihar and Jalpaiguri automatically becoming citizens of Bharat,” the Sangh pointed out.

RSS moved for CBI probe into missing Panna tigers: TOI Report

NAGPUR: After Madhya Pradesh high court dismissed a PIL seeking CBI probe into tiger deaths inside Panna tiger reserve and chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s lack of response on demand for an inquiry, the Bhopal-based environment protection NGO Prayatna has knocked the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) doors at Nagpur.

Ajay Dubey, secretary of Prayatna, an environmental action group, has in a letter written to RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on October 16 requested to support the demand to institute a CBI inquiry into the disappearance of tigers in Panna reserve. Dubey drew Bhagwat’s attention towards missing tigers as a result of poaching in Panna in Madhya Pradesh. Panna lost its entire tiger population in 2008.

The special investigation team (SIT) headed by former National Tiger Conservation Authority(NTCA) member-secretary PK Sen in its report in 2009 had admitted that poaching was the main reason behind disappearance of tigers. On the basis of Sen’s report, the NTCA advised MP government in September 2009 to initiate a CBI inquiry. However, the government is yet to act.

In between, the government formed another committee in 2009 to probe disappearance of tigers in Panna. The committee in its report submitted to the government in February 2010 said that poaching was a major reason for disappearance of tigers. It recommended an action plan but the government failed to implement it, Dubey alleged.

The latest is that a report submitted by Panna field director RS Murthy in February 2011 clearly exposes poaching. He has submitted a large number of poaching cases which were not investigated properly by Panna officials.

“It is very painful for the people of MP to know that according to the tiger census figures of March 2011, the state lost the status of tiger state with only 257 tigers,” Dubey’s letter states.

Scientific studies show that Panna at one time had a healthy tiger population of 35-40. However, all these tigers have been poached. The tigers lost in Panna are at least twice the number of tigers lost in Sariska. Rajasthan government instituted a CBI inquiry in Sariska to establish the cause but the MP government has not.

Dubey has apprised Bhagwat that due to CBI inquiry in Sariska, several culprits were caught and accountability was fixed against the officials concerned. However, in case of Panna, no official has been held accountable. The state government has also failed to notify buffer zone around Panna which is mandatory as per the Wildlife Protection Act 1972.

Prayatna suspects that poachers in MP have links with international mafia involved in smuggling tiger skin and its body parts to China. There is a nexus between international mafia and officials of Panna reserve, Dubey wrote to Bhagwat.

Looking into the seriousness of the issue, Dubey has urged Bhagwat to ask Chouhan to take steps to initiate a CBI inquiry.

“Our several requests to Chouhan went in vain. The lack of response by the government is encouraging smugglers and mafia to wipe out remaining tiger population in the state. Our national animal is under grave threat and hence request you to save the national pride,” Dubey has said.


RSS to campaign against Chinese goods

NAGPUR:  The RSS has now decided to launch a nationwide public awareness campaign against the threat from China not only to the country’s security but also to the economy. The decision was taken by the Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal which concluded its three-day convention at Gorakhpur on Sunday. RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat at his Vijayadashami address here had dealt in detail about the Chinese aggression and designs.

Briefing reporters here on the deliberations held at Gorakhpur in which around 400 RSS functionaries from 11 zones and 39 prants (divisions) participated, Paschim Prant Sahkaryavah (western region in-charge) Ravindra Joshi said : “In 1962, the Chinese threat was totally ignored. Now, India is repeating the same mistakes. Besides incursions into our border areas, China is supporting anti-India activities in Pakistan Nepal, Bangladesh, Myanmarand Sri Lanka.”

While there is a direct military threat from China, the Indian government is turning a blind eye even as China is making deeper incursions into Arunachal Pradesh, he said. “Moreover, China is making deeper inroads into Indian economy. Around 35% power plants being set up in the country are using Chinese technology. Right now, over 1 lakh Chinese technocrats are working in India, many of them staying here illegally,” he claimed.

“The Chinese have hacked major, sensitive computer networks of Indian establishments to gain an edge. China is also harming our interests by building a dam on Brahmaputra river,” he said. Far from taking any action, India is allowing cheap exports of raw material like rubber to China which, in turn, is exporting cheap tyres, hitting India manufacturers,” Joshi explained. The RSS workers in Rajasthan have, on pilot basis, carried out a door-to-door campaign against Chinese goods. This will be replicated all over the country, said the RSS functionary.

Meanwhile, criticizing anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare for his comments of RSS chief Bhagwat and the silent support to his campaign by the Sangh, Sarkaryavah Bhaiyyaji Joshi said Anna’s views (referring to the RSS support as conspiracy) expressed in his letter to Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh have caused immense pain to the RSS. “It is tragic that a person of Anna’s stature too has got influenced by narrow political conspiracy. The views expressed in his letter would unfortunately prove detrimental to the anti-corruption movement that is genuinely supported by millions of Indians,” said Joshi.

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh - Working Committee (Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal- ABKM) Resolutions 2011

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh
Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal , Yugabda 5113
October 14-16, 2011 - Gorakhpur

Need for Comprehensive Strategic Initiative for National Security

The Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal is gravely concerned about the indifferent attitude of the Government towards growing tensions along the borders; rising incidents of encouragement to separatism and terrorism from across the borders; emerging challenges across aerial and oceanic borders; and increasing threats in the international seas and outer space. The ABKM wishes to highlight the following challenges in this context.

Challenges from China:

China is constantly exerting military pressure on our borders; indulging in repeated incursions into our territory; demolishing military and civilian assets and intimidating civilians in the border areas. Presence of Chinese military in our neighbouring countries, development of military bases in those countries and strategic partnership with them with the objective of military encirclement of Bharat must be taken seriously. Some conspicuous examples of this encirclement are: arming Pakistan against Bharat; patronizing anti-Bharat terrorism there; its military activism in the PoK; attempts to control the reins of power in Nepal through Maoism; and the presence of defense experts in countries like Bangladesh, Myanmar and Sri Lanka.

The ABKM is of the considered opinion that apart from abetting terrorism and separatism from across the borders, China’s active support to the insurgent groups in our North-East is a direct challenge to the unity and integrity of our nation. Incidents of China using its cyber warriors for breaking into the information and communication systems of our country and spreading its spy network near sensitive areas by capturing projects through low cost tenders is also going to pose serious threats to nation’s security.

Government of Bharat has on one hand completely forgotten the resolution of the Parliament on 14 Nov 1962 for taking back the 38,000 sq. km territory annexed by China during the war that year; on the other hand its response to China’s new claims over another 90,000 sq km has also been woefully feeble. Government’s utter apathy towards development of basic infrastructure facilities like telecommunications, railways, roads and airports etc in view of these claims and military maneuvers of China in our border areas is ominous.

Stationing of long distance ICBMs capable of carrying multiple nuclear warheads along the Bharat’s border by China is a serious challenge. China has successfully tested anti-satellite and anti-ship missiles. It has developed nuclear submarines that are equipped with missiles, which can carry nuclear warheads and hit targets upto a distance of 8,500 kms. It is imperative on the part of Bharat to immediately develop capabilities to effectively counter these things.

Indian markets are brimming with Chinese goods thus leaving our native industry in doldrums; additionally the huge trade deficit with China is also emerging as a serious challenge to our economy. In Telecommunications area Bharat has not made any efforts to go beyond developing first generation technology. As a result all the equipment required in 3 G and 4 G technology is being supplied by China only. This is posing a serious danger to our information and communications systems. Our over dependence on China in high technology areas including power generation is leaving us permanently at the mercy of that country.

Bharat should take a firm stand against China’s attempts to divert river waters in Tibet and China including the waters of Brahmaputra and take lead in mobilizing nations that get affected by the diversion of these rivers like Bangladesh, Pakistan, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar for securing a just water sharing agreement with China.

Conspiracy by Pakistan:

On the western front activities of Pakistan are a matter of concern. Addressing the top military brass the Prime Minister has himself acknowledged the fact that there was an unprecedented rise in the cross-border infiltration in the last few months. According to one estimate seventy incidents of firing from across the borders or infiltration have occurred in the last four-and-half months along the Kashmir border alone. Growing influence of the fundamentalists in Pakistan Army is posing serious challenge to the safety of the nuclear arsenal there.

Recent killing of the fountainhead of global terrorism Osama bin Laden on Pakistan soil,  where he had taken shelter for years along with his family, exposes the deep nexus between the Pakistan Army and ISI and the international terror network. It needs mention here that the doctor who was instrumental in the capture of Osama is being tried on charges of sedition.

It is once again established that the ISI was involved in the recent bomb blasts outside the Delhi High Court. There is also adequate evidence that the ISI network is helping China in giving assistance to the Maoists. The links between the ISI and the dreaded Haqqani terrorist group that is active in Pak-Af region are well known.

Pakistan is relentlessly trying to destabilize the Karzai regime in Afghanistan. On the eve of withdrawal of the US forces from Afghanistan starting from next year owing to their internal situation Pakistan is pushing hard to install anti-Bharat fundamentalist Taliban regime there. Any such situation in Afghanistan will be a serious direct challenge to Bharat. The ABKM wishes to draw the attention of the Government towards these developments in the Pak-Af region. However the response of the Government of Bharat in this scenario still remains ineffective.

Border issue with Bangladesh:

During the talks with Bangladesh in September 2011 adequate attention has not been paid to the national interests. Handing over of several thousand acres of our territory in Assam and West Bengal to Bangladesh under the pretext that it was already under the latter’s control can’t be justified on any account. It is unwise and unacceptable to cede more territory and get less in the name of territorial exchange. This would result in a large number of Bangladeshi Muslims in CoochBihar and Jalpaiguri automatically becoming citizens of Bharat. This will lead to serious demographic distortion in the region causing enhanced threat of separatism. It is unfortunate that the issue of millions of Bangladesh infiltrators residing in Bharat never figures in these talks. The ABKM demands that in all the treaties with Bangladesh the interests of our nation, its unity and integrity be considered paramount.

Challenges in Indian Ocean region:

The ABKM notes with concern that the region of Indian Ocean is fast turning in to the new battleground for supremacy between the new power blocks reminiscent of the cold war days Europe. Countries of the Indian Ocean Rim are resource-rich and also strategically located in the new power-order.

Bharat has been a prominent presence in this region for millennia. The ABKM opines that Bharat's two millennia old civilizational and cultural relations across the region should be further strengthened.

China has drastically improved its naval strength as well as its activities in the region. Its intimidating presence is leading to rising tensions in the region. On the other hand the US seems to be desperate about its distant presence in Diego Garcia and scrambling for foothold closer in the region. Creation of East Timor out of Indonesia in 2003, war between the LTTE and the Sri Lankan forces in our neighborhood, Taiwan issue etc represent the growing big power conflict in the region. This race for influence between these two countries is offsetting the balance in the region and escalating tensions.

The ABKM feels that Bharat cannot remain a mute spectator in this situation. A large number of countries in the IOR region too want Bharat's benevolent presence to be a reassuring factor for regional peace and stabilization.

Our Government’s initiative of "Look East" is completing 20 years now. The ABKM calls upon the Govt. of Bharat to transform this "Look East" policy in to "Act East" policy and further our engagement with a large number of countries in the region. Our foreign policy objectives must be in consonance with our strategic needs.  In this connection it welcomes the new initiatives with countries like Myanmar and Vietnam.

Bharat has been experiencing the belligerence of China and its allies in the Indian Ocean region of late. Two recent incidents vividly illustrate this highhanded behavior -one between Bharat's and Chinese Navy near Vietnam in the South Chinese Sea and another in the Arabian Sea between Bharat and Pakistan's naval ships. From Gwadar to Hambanthota to Chittagaon to Coco Islands, the influence of China in the Indian Ocean region is growing fast posing serious challenge to our security. License for mining Poly-Metallic Sulphides in a 10,000-sq. km area in the Indian Ocean will provide China a plausible excuse to position its Navy there.

Our armed forces are capable of warding off threats from these forces. They have demonstrated their capability several times. However they seriously suffer from lack of infrastructural support as well as support for weapon's modernization from the Government.

There is a serious disconnect between the nationalist aspirations widely present among the general public and the policy approach of the political establishment. Bharat has scientific capability, military prowess and patriotic fervor in abundance. But it is unfortunate that these aspects do not reflect in the policy initiatives of the Government.

In view of these security challenges the ABKM urges the Government to initiate effective measures to safeguard the entire national borders including the Indo-Tibetan border, sea and aerospace borders and also protect the national interests in the entire oceanic region; and adopt strong measures to counter the challenge of separatism, terrorism and infiltration. In order to counter all the security challenges before the nation, the ABKM demands that the Government should develop effective defense mechanisms and also to initiate extensive measures to achieve comprehensive self reliant in the fields of economy and high-technology. The ABKM appeals to the people to be ever vigilant on the issues of national security and prevail upon the government to take effective measures in this behalf.

Day-3: RSS general Secretary Bhaiyyaji Joshi’s press meet at ABKM, Gorakhpur

Bhaiyyaji along with Dr Vaidya
 Gorakhpur, October 16:

On the third and final day of Akhil Bharatiya Karyakarini Mandal (ABKM) Baitak here at Gorakhpur, RSS Sarakaryavah (General Secretary) Sri Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi shared Sangh opinions on various issues along with media persons. Dr Manmohan Vaidya, RSS Akhil Bharatiya Prachara Pramukh was present along with Bhaiyyaji.

Press Note
Akhil Bhartiya Karyakari Mandal (All India Executive Committee) meeting

Shri Suresh (Bhaiyya Ji) Joshi, Sar Karyavah of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh on Sunday described the media in detail about an entire array of discussions and meetings held during the last three days of Akhil Bhartiya Karyakari Mandal (All India Executive Committee) at Gorakhpur. He said it has been our tradition to proceed on all courses of action only after due diligence and discussions. The meeting also analyzed several ongoing organizational activities of the RSS.

During the meetings there were elaborate discussions wherein it was deliberated upon how to take the thoughts and ideals of Swami Vivekananda to our mothers, sisters, intellectuals and others in our society. January 2013 would mark the 150th birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda and Sangh would initiate a series of functions to mark his Jayanti.

Discussions also centered on the proposed Communal Violence Bill that would soon be introduced by the NAC (National Advisory Council).

The Communal Violence Bill will strike at the root of nation’s unity, weaken the social fabric of our country, widen the gulf between majority and minority communities and will endanger the integrity of our country. The said Bill would lead to distrust within the society and lead to divisions within scheduled castes and scheduled tribes of the Hindu community. The Communal Violence Bill will neither serve any purpose for the society nor for the country. The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh will begin a country wide mass awareness campaign against this Bill.

Concerns were also raised about the rising pollution levels in the revered River Ganga. There were
discussions about how to make the Ganga’s water clean and pollution free.

Bhaiyya Ji said that it is quite clear that the foreign forces would pose a grave security threat for our country in the near future. Specially, China’s growing influence with an eye on our country’s border and its increasing military presence on our borders testifies the fact that it has made elaborate plans to encircle our country. The strategists of our country should give serious thoughts to these issues and devise our own strategies accordingly.

China is building a massive infrastructure on its side of the Indo-China border. We expect the same from the government of Bharat that it builds requisite security infrastructure at Laddakh, Jammu & Kashmir and in Arunachal Pradesh. We demand that the government looks into this issue and implements a concrete plan of action. The morale of our armed forces is high, yet if due to lack of facilities it looks weak then it is a matter of grave concern for all of us.

We urge the government that it initiates action to ensure the nation’s security and secure our country’s border.

Responding to a question about Prashant Bhushan’s views on Kashmir, Bhaiyya Ji expressed surprise and said this is the language of separatists. He said under no circumstances can Jammu & Kashmir be ever separated from our country.

On the issue of participation by Sangh’s Swayamsevaks in the anti-corruption agitation by Shri Anna Hazare, he said that the Swayamsevaks participated in the movement as common people. Bhaiyya Ji added that it has been Sangh’s tradition that it does not feel necessary to take credit for any work done in the interests of the country.

We have no reservations for Shri Anna Ji, if at all he has reservations for the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh then the question should be best answered by him. Responding to Shri Anna Hazare’s silent fast (a vow of silence) Bhaiyya ji said Shri Anna Ji usually keeps such fasts.  Bhaiyya ji added that he has already given his views on Shri Anna Ji in a press statement issued yesterday.

On Shri L.K. Advani’s candidature for the post of Prime Minister, Bhaiyya Ji said there is quite some time for a decision. The said decision will ultimately rest with the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) and the party will eventually decide when time is right.

Responding to a question on transparency wherein it was asked why are Sangh’s meeting held in discreet ways, Bhaiyya Ji said we are all available before the media with elaborate presentations of our discussions. Where is the question of maintaining secrecy about our meetings? he asked.

The press meet was also attended by Dr Manmohan Vaidya, the All India Prachar Pramukh of RSS.
ABKM which was began on Friday, after inauguration by Mohan Bhagwat, was concluded on Sunday evening. After many discussions on various issues, Sangh has passed a resolution on National Security.

RSS National level core team with representatives from each Pranth (state) will meet twice in a year, with a gap of 6 months. In last March Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS) was held at Puttur of Karnataka, which was the Highest ORGANISATIONAL body of RSS.

Day-2: Press Statement RSS Sarkaryavah Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi from ABKM, Gorakhpur

Press Statement Sarkaryavah Suresh (Bhayyaji) Joshi
ABKM, Gorakhpur: Oct 15:

Public discourse taking place with regard to the involvement of the RSS in the anti-corruption movement is ill-intentioned and betrays a political conspiracy to weaken the movement.

Sri Anna Hazare is a man committed to noble ideals. He has been leading a massive popular movement against corruption in the country. Entire credit for the success of this movement goes to him only. Me and thousands of other activists of the country are familiar with and inspired by the ideas articulated by him on several occasions and the developmental activity undertaken by him. In his reply to the redundant controversy raked up in a conspiratorial manner by the General secretary of the Congress Party, Sri Anna had made some comments on the RSS Chief Sri Mohan Bhagwat and also indicated that he viewed the letter written by me in support of his movement as a conspiracy. These views, which were published widely in the media, go beyond my comprehension and cause immense pain to me.

It is tragic that a person of Anna’s stature too has got influenced by narrow political conspiracy. The views expressed in his letter would prove detrimental to the anti-corruption movement only. It will be most unfortunate.

The Swayamsevaks of the RSS along with millions of countrymen genuinely aspire to see a Bharat completely free of corruption. It is the paramount responsibility of the leaders of the anti-corruption movements to safeguard them from narrow and low-level conspiratorial politics.
The general public which plunges into such movements fired by the spirit of patriotism gets disturbed by such controversies. Hence the leadership is expected to be vigilant. Who will be responsible if the people feel disillusioned and get disheartened? All the nationalist forces should close ranks to defeat such machinations. Country can expect to achieve freedom from corruption only when the movements reach their logical ends successfull

Karyakartas working in various fields share their experiences at the monthly meeting.

Kollampally village situated in Mahbubnagar (Palamoor)  district of Andhra Pradesh, that was once regarded as dull and backward like other villages, has now completely transformed into a rapidly developing one due to the efforts of Grammena Vikasa Parishad. The literacy rate has exponentially increased and people have started many self employment projects.

The speciality of this village is that it has a temple in every locality. Because of this, the village has over 30 temples. In addition to this, the temple of Banjara community’s deity is situated on the hill adjacent to the village.

In 1990, Grameen Vikasa Parishad initiated the work by establishing Keshav Shishu Mandir in the village. Economically backward students and children belonging to SC/ST category were mostly benefited by the move. Hundreds of backward class students study in this school at present. Many saplings have been planted and flowering plants have been cultivated in the school premises.

A saving scheme ‘Sri Vivekananda Grameena Podupu Sangham’ was initiated under which small amounts such as Rs 25, Rs 50 and Rs 100 were collected from the villagers. From this collected amount, economic assistance was provided to the villagers for setting up small self employment projects. Many people availed the benefit of this scheme and started earning their own bread. Nearly 90 per cent people also cleared the debt.

Aditya Village Development Committee was established for all round development of the village in the year 2000. A community building called ‘Aditya Village Service Bhavan’ has been built in which a night study centre is run along with free coaching classes for students who are weak in studies. A self employment training centre for girls and tailoring training centre also functions in the building. Various training courses are conducted at Hanuman temple located in the backward area of the village. A weekly meeting of women is also organized.

Village temples and roads are regularly cleaned. Karyakartas working in various fields share their experiences at the monthly meeting that is organized at Keshav Shishu Mandir. Various development works that are carried out in the village are reviewed in this meeting.

All these activities are now showing positive results. There has been a drastic change in the behavior of village youths, literacy rate has crossed the mark of 75 per cent, social harmony has increased, youths are always engaged in some creative work, many people have opened kumkum and incense sticks shops, many people have initiated shampoo manufacturing units and women have also entered into the field of self employment by establishing self help groups. This village, once regarded as undeveloped, is now making a remarkable progress in different sectors.
