Dr. Mohan Bhagvat addressing the swayamsevaks on the occassion of Vijaya Dashami in Nagpur
RSS Vijayadashmi Celebration 2011
Nagpur, October 6 : Sarsanghchalak Dr Mohanji Bhagwat flayed the the proposed Communal and Targeted Violence Bill in every form and said that the draft prepared by the National Advisory Committee under the guidance of Sonia Gandhi has no constitutional value at all. Speaking at the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh Nagpur Mahanagar’s Vijayadashmi Utsav celebration, he demanded for the complete abolition of the draft and appealed to all the Members of Parliament to strive unitedly for this cause.
He took a brief account of various burning issues before nation through his detailed speech. Anti-corruption movement has yet not been completely successful. We should be prepared for a long battle. It will be possible to view positive results only if a strong stream of united power will flow by setting aside the the ideological differences, he further said.
Sarsanghchalak also strongly criticized Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh’s statement that the proposed Communal and Targeted Violence Bill can be presented in an improvised manner. He said that the draft itself deserves to be thrown into the dustbin. It is against justice and democracy.
Asserting that the anti-corruption movement is the outburst of people’s anger, he said that the leadership of this movement needs to be quite alert. Government is leaving no stone unturned to suppress the agitation. Those who are opposing the slogan ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ in this movement should be dropped, he insisted. Sangh swayamsevaks voluntarily participate in every movement that is in favour of nation’s interest, he mentioned.
Taking a stock of world politics, Dr Bhagwat alerted government about the external threats. India has a cultural connection with neighbouring nations since hundreds of years. In spite of this, Pakistan, China, Bangladesh and Nepal are bearing enmity with India. We must change this situation. India must strengthen the cultural bonds and share their joys and sorrows. These nations seek guidance from India rather than from the stronger nations of the world. This should be kept in mind while framing the foreign policies, he said. He also appealed to take effective steps for the rehabilitation of Tamil brethren in Sri Lanka.
Over Kasmir issue, Dr Bhagwat mocked at the central government policy of appointing a mediator. This policy framed by government to keep its vote bank intact has facilitated the separatist elements to again raise their ugly hood. The amalgamation of Kashmir with India is complete and final; therefore, while negotiating on Kashmir, it is necessary to proceed with the resolution passed unanimously by the Parliament in 1914, he said.
Criticizing Home Minister P Chidambaram for his classification of terrorists as more and less dangerous, he said that terrorism is just terrorism; it cannot be quantified as more or less dangerous. It has to be completely uprooted. He strongly flayed the central government for appointing alleged Moist supporter Dr Binayak Sen on the panel of Planning Commission who recently got relief from the Supreme Court.
Regarding inflation, he said that the salaries of legislators are spiraling whereas the common man is being engulfed by the fire of inflation. Government is making a mockery of the poverty of economically backward people.
In order to provide food security to the entire nation, it is very necessary that farm land should be well protected. However, this fertile land of farmers is being grabbed under the name of SEZ. Those who protest the move are falling victim to the ruthless firing by police. This is extremely dreadful. Raising eyebrows over death of farmers in police firing at Mawal (Maharashtra), he indirectly flayed Deputy Chief Minister of Maharashtra Ajit Pawar.
All such problems that are being confronted by the nation have been created by human beings because of their misdeeds. Their eradication is not possible just by framing laws but system transformation is the only solution. For this transformation, there is a need to create a united, value-oriented society comprising of good people. Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh is striving hard from last 86 years towards the creation of such society. Today’s situation is also demanding a value-based society consisting of good people and this demand must be fulfilled by the children of Bharat Mata. Let us all vow to accomplish this task on this pious occasion of Vijayadashmi, he appealed.
Dr Kohli flays govt’s lenient attitude over terrorism
Chief guest of the programme, renowned Hindi Litterateur Dr Narendra Kohli, came down heavily on central government’s lenient attitude over terrorism. For protecting terrorists, these people having alleged sympathy for ultras, have spread misconceptions regarding Mahatma Gandhi’s philosophy of non-violence, he said.
Who are these people who talk of protecting terrorists? Raising this question, Dr Kohli said that this nation doesn’t belong to these people. These people can never be patriots. Stating that utilizing power for self-defense and protecting the nation is not the violence, he said that Bhagavadgita doesn’t propagate violence. If this was true, Gandhiji would have never advocated Gita. There is no paradox among Shri Krishna and Gandhiji but both are very similar, he proposed.
Taking stock of the anti-corruption movement, he said that after a warm response to this agitation, a fruitless discussion has started over the issue that Anna is not the public representative! Insisting firmly that Anna is indeed a public representative, he said that one who works for the cause of nation and for the benefit of nation is a public representative.
Asserting that Swami Vivekanand had a revelation that Bharatmata is Goddess Jagadamba, he said that selfless service towards the children of Bharatmata is the true worship of Maa Jagadamba.
After the arrival of chief guest along with Sarsanghchalak, swayamsevaks presented breath taking demonstrations of dand-yuddh, niyuddh, dand yog and ghosh. Initial address, introduction of the guests and vote of thanks was proposed by Mahanagar Sanghchalak Dr Dilip Gupta. Vidarbha Prant Saha Sanghchalak Ram Harkare and Mahanagar Saha Sanghchalak Laxmanrao Pardikar were present on the dais. Bharatiya Janata Party National President Nitin Gadkari was prominently present in a complete ganavesh (uniform) during the programme.
