Gorakhpur, Oct 10: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat has said that his outfit would back any movement against corruption.
Addressing a gathering here on Sunday, Bhagwat said: “The RSS workers will always stand by the side of any person who is fighting against corruption. We are supporting it”
Earlier Bhagwat had said that RSS volunteers had actively taken part in the movement led by social activist Anna Hazare against corruption without craving for position and credit.
Meanwhile, former RSS chief K S Sudarshan has slammed senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh.
“I don’t want to make any comment on the statements made by Digvijay Singh. Everybody knows that the central point of corruption is the foreigner Sonia Gandhi. He (Digvijay Singh) would never make a comment on her. So, let him speak whatever he feels like,” Sudarshan told the media in Bhopal.
Digvijay Singh on Friday said that he stood vindicated after Mohan Bhagwat’s admission that his outfit has backed Anna Hazare”s agitation.
“Well, I have always held that Anna Hazare”s campaign and Baba Ramdev”s campaign have been planned, engineered, organised by the RSS and I still hold to that. I am very happy that Mohan Bhagwatji has accepted this fact in his Dussehra speech in Nagpur. So, my stand is vindicated. And also at the same time, whenever I said that Anna Hazare”s campaign is being run by RSS, Anna always tells me to go to a mental asylum. I don”t know whether I should go now or not,” Singh said.
