RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, who was among the early ones to cast his vote on Monday for the Maharashtra Assembly polls, said the Sangh has been under attack for the last 90 years but there is no need to worry as the society is one and will always remain so.
Bhagwat went to a polling booth in Mahal area of the city around 7 am. Speaking to reporters after he exercised his franchise, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said, “We have been targeted since last 90 years. So, there is no need to worry as the society is one and will always be one. It is politics, all this is part of it. But the society is one and will always will one,” he said.
Bhagwat’s remark came in response to reporters asking him about the Congress targeting the RSS over the Bharat Ratna push for Hindutva ideologue VD Savarkar. Bhagwat, however, dubbed it as “politics”.
NOT FOR PERSON, BUT VOTE ON ISSUES: BHAGWAT
RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat also urged people to come out to vote, saying it is the responsibility of citizens to elect their public representatives.
“We emphasise on 100 per cent voting. Vote on issues, and not looking at the person or the environment,” he urged.
SAYS HE IS NOT POLITICAL PERSON
Asked what will be the outcome of the ongoing state polls, Bhagwat said, “I cannot presume as I am not a political person. The results will be out in three days and everyone will get to know.”
Polling began on Monday morning in all 288 Assembly constituencies of the state. The voting commenced at 7 am and will end at 6 pm.
