Mohan Bhagwat's statement, disrespect to Constitution: Pinarayi

Ram Madhav

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat, who is now in Bihar for 10 days, stirred a fresh controversy after he compared his organisation with the Indian Army.

"RSS chief must apologise to the people of india for this treacherous remark".

Saying that Bhagwat's comments were in "poor taste, against Constitutional propriety", Pinanrayi Vijayan wrote on Facebook that Bhagwat had tried to belittle the Indian Army.

He said that organising a parallel army is akin to treason, and added that what came out through Bhagawat's words is the danger that was pointed out by the LDF in the past. "This exposes the RSS game plan to form a parallel army and shatter the country's unity and create anarchy". "(Swayamsewak will be ready to take on the front if the country faces such a situation and constitution permits to do so)", Bhagwat said.

"This was no way a comparison between the Indian army and the Sangh swayamsevaks but it was a comparison between general society and swayamsevaks", Vaidya said.

Sending Zavier Simpson to the line multiple times, they tried to get back into the game by trading buckets for missed free throws. Roads win are always important and this time of year, and avoiding a bad loss is nearly as important as scoring a really big win.

He tweeted: "Mohan Bhagwat ji said to create a new contingent of army procedures followed for recruitment, training which takes time, @RSSorg swyamsevaks trained in shakha ready for self service any time".

However, the RSS claims that Bhagwat was not comparing Army with Sangh.

While addressing Sangh workers at Zila school ground on the last day of his six-day visit of Muzaffarpur, Bhagwat had said: "Hamara military sanghatan nahin hai, military jaisi discipline hamari hai".

"Kiren Rijiju is not a minister of state but a minister of Sangh". "In emergency situation (not Congress emergency) [sic] every Indian must volunteer to stand with Defence Forces", Rijiju said. In his tweets, Rijiju reiterated what the RSS had clarified and turned the tables on the Congress, claiming that it wanted to divide the army on religious lines in the past.

Bhagwat, who is now on a 10-day tour of Bihar, was addressing a gathering of RSS workers in Muzaffarpur, Bihar on Sunday.
