RSS not running Narendra Modi-led govt: Rajnath Singh

Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday rejected the opposition charges that the RSS was running the government and said he and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are 'Sayamsevaks' of the saffron fountainhead and no one should have any problem in it.



Pune: Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday rejected the opposition charges that the RSS was running the government and said he and Prime Minister Narendra Modi are 'Sayamsevaks' of the saffron fountainhead and no one should have any problem in it.

"I want to clarify everyone that I am a RSS 'Sayamsevak' (worker), the Prime Minister is a RSS 'Sayamsevak` and no one should have any problem in it," he said on the sidelines of a function here.

Singh also dismissed the suggestion that RSS is running the Modi government.

"There is no truth in it. It is completely baseless," he said.

The Home Minister also rejected the charges that by attending a meeting with the RSS leadership, the Union Ministers have broken the oath of secrecy taken while assuming the charge.

"We have not broken any oath of secrecy. By attending a meeting -- be it public or an indoor, no oath of secrecy is broken," he said.

During the three-day "coordination" meeting of the RSS and the BJP, the top brass of the government and the BJP, including senior ministers, came face-to-face with the RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and top Sangh leaders.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi also participated in the dialogue on the last day of the "coordination" meeting.

Congress had criticised the ministers for attending the meeting alleging that the RSS was acting like a remote control and running the Modi dispensation.
