Social, national issues to figure at meet, but no decisions: RSS

However, neither will any decisions be taken at the meeting nor will there be any review of the government’s performance during the three-day conclave, RSS chief spokesperson Manmohan Vaidya told reporters here on Monday.

“This meeting is not for reviewing the government’s performance or taking a decision. Nor will it be at the centre of our discussion. But we will get all kinds of inputs which will be discussed,” Vaidya said.

The coordination meeting being held in the Capital from September 2 to 4 will take up social and national issues, including the education policy, internal security and economic issues. Besides Modi, who Vaidya said was likely to attend the meet depending on his convenience, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and senior ministers will also be present. While Modi and the ministers would be present in some sessions, BJP chief Amit Shah and party general secretary, Organisation, Ram Lal were likely to attend the meet on all three days.

Vaidya said 93 main functionaries of the Sangh and its 15 affiliates will deliberate on various issues of concern. He said though the last such ‘samanvya baithak’ was held in Ludhiana a year ago, this year’s was a ‘bigger’ exercise.

The Sangh’s shakhas have increased in number though the RSS denies it had anything to do with the BJP being in power saying the BJP had never ruled Kerala but the state had a large number of shakhas. The number of people trained by the organisation for initiation into it had risen this year to 1.15

lakh from 80 thousand in the last year, Vaidya said.

“This time the meeting is bigger. There are several issues concerning society and there will be wider inputs from everybody,” he said.

While denying that the cancellation of the NSA level talks between India and Pakistan or the Bihar elections would be discussed at the meeting, he issues like census figures, the Gujarat agitation and one-rank-one-pension issue could be raised in the meeting.

He said though the government had already decided on OROP, it was working out its modalities.
