Nagpur: The eyes of former RSS chief K S Sudarshan, who passed away following a heart attack in Raipur Saturday, have been donated.

Sudarshan had pledged his eyes to Madhav Netra Pidhi (Eye Bank), run by an RSS-affiliated organization, at Raipur.

Accordingly his corneas were removed post-death, which would be grafted in the eyes of a needy person, RSS functionary Ravindra Joshi said.

Joshi also said that the RSS veteran was against surgical intervention, despite the diagnosis of his heart condition.

Instead, he relied on traditional treatment, such as diet consisting of bitter gourd (lauki) juice, etc.
