RSS won`t give up "Hindutva" word to get votes: Bhagwat

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Friday said he would not stop using words `Hindutva` or `Hindu` even if political parties close to the Sangh get less votes during elections.



Ahmedabad: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Friday said he would not stop using words `Hindutva` or `Hindu` even if political parties close to the Sangh get less votes during elections.

"Today, Hindu word has become necessary because what it means is not there in any other word. We cannot leave it, VHP cannot leave it. We will always use Hindu word because it signifies the truth," Bhagwat said during a concluding session of seminar on Hindutva here.

Defending the use of the words, Bhagwat said, "I was asked in a sabha (meeting) that if because of the Hindu word we get less votes why can`t we stop using the word. I said, ask those who want votes. They said you have to change, but I said we won`t change.

"And if because of that we become less popular or go down we will go together with Hindutva.
