A Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh leader from Dina assembly constituency was addressed as a BJP candidate since.

“The RSS has fully thrown its weight behind the BJP in Bihar polls. Thousands of RSS cadres and supporters from different parts of the country have been working to help the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance to defeat the grand alliance of the Janata Dal United, Rashtriya Janta Dal and the Congress” stated a BJP leader.

Another senior BJP leader communicated to IANS that RSS leaders Ram Lal, Saudan Singh and Nagenderji  would campaign in all 243 assembly constituencies and address public meetings to garner votes for BJP candidates.

The BJP is contesting 160 assembly seats with ally Lok Janshakti Party (40),Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (23) and Hindustani Awami Morcha (20) seats.

JD(U) spokesperson Sanjay Singh said a new development in Bihar polls could be the appointment of RSS leaders as star campaigners in BJP (pointing towards the backing of BJP by RSS in the polls.)

Sanjay Singh indicated that senior party leader and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had rightly described the RSS as the supreme count of the BJP. He questioned that was it the RSS that controlled the BJP and his government alike?

  • RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) is a is an Indian right-wing
  • RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat expressed his views on Indian Army’s preparation in his speech to RSS workers in Muzaffarpur in Bihar
  • Kiren Rijiju said if the Constitution permits, RSS can go ahead with its interference in military matters.

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh wants to re-mould the Indian State with a military which adheres to Hindutva, the Communist Party of India-Marxist (CPI-M) has said.

This is the message that emerges from RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s speech to RSS workers in Muzaffarpur in Bihar that while the Army takes six to seven months to train its soldiers, the RSS can get its cadres ready for battle in two to three days, the CPI-M said.

“This remark has drawn widespread condemnation, with the main criticism being that the RSS chief had insulted the Indian army by claiming that the RSS can do a better job than the Army in training soldiers,” an editorial in the CPI-M journal “People’s Democracy,” said.

“While this criticism is valid, the intent of these remarks is much more serious,” it said. “The statement has revealed a vital aspect of the RSS outlook about the Army and the militarization of society.”

The editorial said: “What the RSS wants in the re-moulding of the Indian State is armed forces which adhere to Hindutva. For Bhagwat, the soldier in the Indian Army and the Swayamsevak of the RSS are on the same footing.

“Under the present Indian Constitution, such an integration of the Army and the RSS is not possible.

That is why, both the RSS clarification and the defence put out by (Minister of State for home) Kiren Rijiju makes this qualification that if the Constitution permits, the RSS can go ahead with its interference in military matters.

“The implication is ominous: a re-worked Constitution should enable this to happen.”
