One leader can not face all the challenges before this country and a single organization or party can not bring about change, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat said on Tuesday.
This thought was at the base of the Sangh’s ideology, he said, adding that the country got independence only when the common people took to the street.
Mohan Bhagwat was speaking at a centenary programme of the Vidarbha Sahitya Sangh, a Marathi literary body, in Nagpur.
“One thing at the base of the Sangh’s ideology is that a single leader is not supposed to tackle all the challenges before this country. He can not even do that. Howsoever big the leader may be,” the RSS chief said.
“One organization, one party, one leader can not bring about change. They help bring it. Change takes place when the common man stands up for it,” he added.
India’s freedom struggle began way back in 1857, but it succeeded only when there was a massive awareness and “the common man took to the street,” Mr Bhagwat said.
