New Delhi: Concerned about "depleting morality and love for the nation" among the present generation youths, the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) has now planned to take the 'Balagokulam' movement forward.

As per a report in India Today, the right-wing Hindu organisation is planning to introduce weekly moral science classes for kids on Sundays at around 5,000 centres.

The move aims at enriching moral values in children in all major cities in the country as a "corrective measure".

In a 'boudhik' meeting of its senior office bearers recently, the RSS took a decision to organise ''Balagokulam'' – weekly cultural and moral science classes through teachings of Hindu epics for children of up to 18 years starting June 1.

The RSS feels that the younger generation no longer values the sentiments of the country and sensitivity towards fellow human beings.
