New Delhi, Jan 29 (PTI) Stung by the sex and corruption scams involving Sangh Parivar leaders and MPs, RSS General Secretary Mohan Bhagwat has asked cadres to be "careful of political power and money" and maintain a low profile.
Describing RSS’ activities as "God’s Work", Bhagwat, who is tipped to be the next RSS Chief, said the "rapid decline" in Hindu population was responsible terrorism world-wide.
"We must be careful about Satta (political power), Bhatta (monetary allowances), Adhikar (rights) and Dhan (wealth). We have to work in the society without coming into limelight. A Swayamsewak should always keep in mind the clean image of the Sangh while working in the society", he said recently in Vidisha in Madhya Pradesh, according to a report in the latest issue of RSS mouthpiece ‘Organiser’.
"Wrong things get more publicity in the society. This is the mindset of Indians, which should be removed", he said in an apparent reference to the televison exposes on corruption and the CD which showed BJP General Secretary (Organisation) Sanjay Joshi in poor light.
Maintaining that the credibility of media was "at stake", he advised Swayamsewaks to be careful of "misleading news carried by the media about Sangh and its workers".
Bhagwat had earlier given a clean chit to Joshi.
Describing Sangh’s work as "God’s Work", he said, "the solution to all problems lies with India the key to India’s development is the Sangh".
"It is because of the rapid decline in Hindu population tht the whole world is today in grip of terrorism. The reason for growing terrorism in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar and Tibet is their separation from India", he said.
