It is an undeniable fact that the government today is toeing the line of the Rashtra Swayamsevak Sangh and no policy decision is taken without consultation of the organization. The government is not hesitant to admit the fact. For the first time the organization that was banned by the first Home Minister of India Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the ideal leader of the Prime Minister Narendra Modi is now playing somewhat a key role in the government. The confirmation of the fact now came from the Congress president Rahul Gandhi.
While interacting with professionals and businessmen at the end of four days of his campaign at Kalburgi in poll-bound Karnataka, Rahul Gandhi said the RSS men had infiltrated in all departments and ministries. He said, ‘In every single ministry in India, at the national level there is an OSD from RSS working with the minister…..The minister is not operating on his own.” The RSS men have been planted in all departments.
What Rahul Gandhi disclosed was a long process by the RSS to know the government policies before they were announced. They are able to give protection to their persons who were caught in indulging in illegal activities. Today when the party is calling shots, these RSS elements are emboldened and daring to dictate their colleagues.
Rahul Gandhi also revealed that the idea of demonetization was also given by an RSS man. It was not given by the RBI, nor finance ministry or any economic expert but an RSS person enjoying the confidence of the PM and he implemented it. This is the way of functioning of the Prime Minister. While the idea destroyed the economy and small traders, the government has been praising it saying that the result would be seen in future.
