RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat- File photo

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday said that every village in India should have a branch of the organisation and every member of it should strive for the country’s progress.

Addressing the concluding event of a workers’ camp of the Assam unit, Bhagwat said that the nation is a priority for all people, irrespective of their differences.

“He (Bhagwat) observed that every village in India should have a Shakha (branch) as the society as a whole has given it the opportunity to work for them and hence Swayamsevaks should lead the society from the front,” the RSS said in a statement.

The event where Bhagwat spoke, and the three-day camp, were closed-door affairs, allowed only for RSS workers.

“With full conviction to India’s pride and heritage, the Swayamsevaks should work for the progress of the nation,” the RSS chief said.

He also stated that the nation should be a priority for everyone and leaving aside all differences, all the citizens have to work tirelessly for the welfare of the nation.

“We have to be ready to do everything for the nation. Dr Keshav Baliram Hedgewar established RSS in 1925 with the aim to develop human resources. We may have differences in opinions but not in our minds,” Bhagwat said.
