Sangh means not PM Modi or BHP, all are part of it: Mohan Bhagwat

Bhopal, Nov 20: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat said Sangh does only work to organise Shakha, influence people to work for nation. "Sangh ka kam hai aadat dalna" (RSS' job is to make a habit).

Meanwhile, Bhagwat also said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi "is a swayamsewak and pracharak, and even today he is working as a pracharak."

"Whenever the name of Sangh comes, you take Modiji's name. Yes Modiji has been a Sangh swayamsevak and also a pracharak. The VHP too is run by our Swayamsevaks. But the Sangh in no way directly or remote controls them, they work independently. We can only give consultations and advice, but can never control them," the RSS chief said while addressing an event in Jabalpur on Saturday.

Addressing a gathering of intellectuals and prominent people in Jabalpur (Madhya Pradesh), Bhagwat said "India didn't become one nation on the basis of language, trading interest, political power and thought. It has become one nation on the basis of unity in diversity and Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (world is one family)."

He also asserted that one person or one organisation or one political outfit can not make big change. "Hindutva means the philosophy of embracing all, the Preamble of Indian Constitution is the prime spirit of Hindutva only," he further added.

Stressing on the need for public discipline, the RSS chief said Dharma doesn't mean religion or worship system, instead it implies to performing the duties in disciplined manner.

He also called for extensive nature conservation efforts. "We should religiously do tree plantation and water conservation, as we take so much from nature," he said.

He added that it's not language or worship system which forms a society. People with a common objective build the society. "Diversities are welcome and acceptable, but diversities should in no manner become the basis of any discrimination," RSS chief added.
