RSS does not seek report card from us: Rajnath Singh

Lucknow, Sep 26 (IANS) Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Saturday said the central government was not giving any presentations or report card to the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) as reported in some sections of the media.

Taking part in a conclave organised by a prominent media house, the minister said he was proud to have his roots in the RSS but denied that the ministers of the union government were reporting to the RSS.

“We are volunteers or the RSS and would always remain so but to accuse of acting on its guidance is misplaced. But yes we do share experience and our views since the RSS pracharaks have their own wisdom and experience,” he said.

At the same conclave, HRD Minister Smriti Irani also denied reports that she made a presentation at the RSS headquarter recently and said the media should not feed the people with unconfirmed news.

She also took on the media for acting a “judge and jury” and said while she did not have a dislike for the media she “understood the business of media” and hence preferred to keep to her work.


  1. RSS does not seek report card from us: Rajnath Singh.

    You are a creature of RSS! How could you ever consider giving a report card to your creator?

  2. @ Pincode Pai – BJP was created by those who wanted to put a stop to ‘vote bank’, anti-sanaathana politics practiced by ’44-seats’ party. When you ignore and suppress a group, they would go to places where they are protected and respected. These are called natural laws. There is no point in blaming RSS or BJP. It would be a good day for India when political parties focus on policies and stop focusing on ‘vote banks’!

    Dear readers,

    In distant India, ministers carry laptops and wait for their turn to eagerly present their current and future strategies to sundry members of a social organisation whose aim, by its own reckoning, is “to bring to life the all-round glory and greatness of our Hindu Rashtra”. Those who make such presentations include the Union finance, defence and home ministers, among others.

    The presentations and discussions are behind closed doors and there is no way to tell exactly what was discussed. But the fact that the ministers trooped in to the RSS headquarters to make their presentations at the allotted time slots tells its own story and lays bare the balance of power.

    Nothing is beyond the purview of such discussions. President’s rule in Bihar? Preemptive strike? Reservations? Special packages for states/various sections? New RBI governor? Deterrent taxes on e-retail? Ban on films or books? Special package for Uttar Pradesh in view of the elections next year? Labour reforms? Article 370? Ram Mandir? Appointments? Transfers?

    Will Rajnath Singh will explain government presentations to RSS violate Oath of Secrecy or not?

    Jai Hind
