New Delhi: The RSS has said that they will not interfere with the campaign of BJP`s prime ministerial candidate for 2014 General Elections, Narendra Modi and neither will they influence the policies of the government if the Gujarat CM becomes the next PM of India.
RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat reportedly told industrialists, retired bureaucrats, armed forces personnel, former intelligence chiefs and authors, in an interaction with them that the job of the organisation was to only convey to Modi what the people were saying and give inputs.
He also clarified that the RSS was not opposed to liberalisation, privatisation and FDI. However, he added that foreign investment at the expense of small domestic manufacturers could not be supported. Bhagwat was also opposed foreign investment in education and maintained that education should not be commercialised.
Modi was anointed his party`s PM candidate for 2014 polls in September this year, reportedly with the blessings of the RSS. The RSS was keen that the BJP announce the name of Modi as soon as possible as there was a clamour in the rank and file of the party in favour of Modi and the Gujarat CM was considered the best bet to take on a beleaguered Congress.
