RSS takes out unity rally amidst Police security

Mysuru: Thousands of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangha (RSS) workers yesterday took out a full dress parade (Patha Sanchalana) in the city amidst tight Police security.

The parade had been planned as part of ‘Sanghik’ (uniting RSS wings in the city). The RSS activists who used to wear khaki shorts earlier, changed to pants in October last year.

As a precautionary measure, City Police Commissioner Dr. A. Subrahmanyeswara Rao clamped prohibitory orders in N.R. Assembly segment where the parade was to take place, besides denying permission to the parade.

This prompted the Sangha leaders to change their plans and come up with a different route plan. As per the changed plan, the parade was launched from Rajendranagar School and passed through Shankar Nursing Home, Kurimandi Circle, Karumariyamma Temple, Amba Bhavani Circle, Shivaji Road, Paras Jain School, DVN Circle, Rajendranagar Main Road and Rajendranagar Second Cross, before reaching   Rajendra Nagar 7th Cross Park, the culmination point.

Slogans such as ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ and ‘Vande Mataram’ rented the air as the parade passed through. Addressing the gathering, RSS Veteran Kalladka Prabhakar Bhat said that only those who love their motherland, culture and great personalities, are the real citizens of the country.

Hailing former President late APJ Abdul Kalam as a great stalwart of the country, he said that Kalam had a vision that India should become a ‘super power.’

Recalling the sacrifices made by great personalities like Swami Vivekananda, Basavanna, Shivaji, Rani Chennamma, Onake Obavva etc., Bhat said it was important to follow the Vachanas of 12th century social reformer Basavanna.

Explaining the objectives of RSS, he said that the word Hindu is a symbol of nationalism.

Pointing out that the RSS was trying to awaken the society on the threats from Pakistan and other hostile countries, he called upon the people to dedicate at least one hour a day for doing service to the country.

RSS Mysuru Division Sanghachalak Dr. Vaman Rao Bapat, City Sanghachalak Vasudev Bhat, Corporators B.M. Nataraj and M.V. Ramprasad, BJP leaders L. Nagendra, M.V. Ravishankar, Mahadevaswamy, Arun Kumar Gowda, M.K. Premkumar and a host of other local leaders were present.

    Bhat ji I was in Mysore recently and my experience contrary to earlier ones was not good. I endorse your definition of who is citizen. it only needs introspection for bjp

    Slogans such as ‘Bharat Mata Ki Jai’ and ‘Vande Mataram’ are very offensive to some people and abuse of the freedom of expression! How could RSS do this in public? No wonder they are accused of every murder that happen in the country! 60 years on peace and harmony is being disturbed just in 3 years! Adding fuel to the fire, Demonitation have made some free thinkers(loaders?) life more difficult that they have to now do some work for a living!
    I think, RSS should stop any public display of patriotism that can cause some liberals uneasy!
