After accepting the invitation of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) program by former President Pranab Mukherjee , a Congress leader has raised questions on this. Congress leader Sandeep Dikshit said that “Pranab Mukherjee has already raised the question of RSS on the issue of communalism and violence. RSS will know these things. He had said that there is no anti-national organization like RSS. It should not be in the country. ‘
Dikshit further said that “those who consider RSS to be poisonous by snakes are being called in the program, whether Pranab Mukherjee has changed his ideology or there is no self respect in RSS itself.” Let us tell you that the long time connected with the Congress, former President Pranab Mukherjee has accepted the invitation to give lecture on nationalism in front of Sangh’s future ‘Pracharak’ in Nagpur on June 7.
Pranav will give lecture on nationalism to future campaigners
He will address the RSS workers who have passed the third education class of the academic curriculum of the union in Nagpur. Those who pass this training will later become full-time preachers. According to sources, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat had also invited Mukherjee when he was the president. Although Mukherjee had then refused to say that while holding a constitutional post, he could not join the event.
Bhagwat, who had met Mukherjee many times in those days at Rashtrapati Bhavan, had also contacted the former Congressman leader even after his removal from the post of President. It is believed that he again made an invitation and asked to consider it because Mukherjee had completed his term of office. After becoming President, Mukherjee had resigned from the Congress, so Mukherjee did not have any obligation attached to the party and therefore he accepted the invitation.
Congress presenting ideological challenge to Congress
It is said that Pranav liked to keep his point on nationalism. The point of note is that the RSS has its own ideas on cultural nationalism. Over the years the RSS has been trying to present a conceptual challenge to the Congress. After the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi, there was a ban on RSS. Later, the RSS tried to present itself in the new form through the success of its Political Front Jan Sangh. The Jana Sangh leaders formed the Bharatiya Janata Party ahead.
