RSS can`t chant ‘NaMo, NaMo’: Mohan Bhagwat to cadre
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat has cautioned his organisation`s cadre that the RSS should not cross its “maryada” (limits) while working for the BJP.
While addressing the RSS’s Pratinidhi Sabha in Bangalore on Sunday, Bhagwat instructed the RSS cadre to stay away from any personality-driven campaign, saying: “Hum rajneeti mein nahin hain. Humara kaam ‘Namo Namo’ karna nahin hai. Humme apne lakshya ke liye kaam karna hai (We are not in politics. Our work is not to chant ‘Namo, Namo’. We must work towards our own target).
Responding to a participant`s suggestion that the RSS’s role in relation to the BJP should resemble the one shared by Chanakya with Chandragupta Maurya, Bhagwat said it was more important to work in an isolated manner in the current circumstances.
“Humaari apni maryada hai. Humme maryada nahi todni hai (We have our own limits. We must not cross our limits),” he said.
Last week, the RSS had, however, endorsed BJP`s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi as a strong leader who had delivered in Gujarat.
"He (Modi) is a strong leader who has delivered in Gujarat. We are proud of him as our karyakarta (worker)," RSS joint general secretary Dattatreya Hosabale had told reporters at the Sangh`s annual convention in Bangalore.
Modi is also the chief minister of Gujarat.
Observing that the country was looking forward for a change and a government that ensured good governance, Hosabale said the Sangh would give the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) suggestions on economic policies, development models and measures to tackle price rise and check high inflation.
