|Bhagwati Prasad and Manmohan Vaidya in press meet|
Gorakhpur, October 15 : Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh’s Sarkaryavah Suresh (Bhayyaji) Joshi expressed disagree ment with Anna’s response to Congress Secretarial statement about RSS’s involvement in Anti-corruption movement and said that ‘though Anna is a noble man committed to a great cause, he often gets influenced by the political conspirators.’
Bhayyaji expressed his view in a press brief in Gorakhpur, where Sangh’s Akhil Bharatiya Karyakarini Mandal (ABKM) meeting is in session. Bhaiyaji said, “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.”
“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,” he added.
Bhaiyyaji stated further, “In his reply to the redundant controversy raked up in a conspiratorial manner by the General Secretary of the Congress Party, Anna had made some comments on the RSS Sarsanghchalak Mohanji 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.”
Here Sarkaryavah specified the role of the RSS in the activities like anti-corruption movement. He said, “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.”
Bhaiyyaji added, “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 successfully.”
