Statesman News Service | Meerut |

The volunteers of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh( RSS) will converge in Meerut on 25 February for its day long ‘ Rashtrodaya ‘ programme that would be addressed by Chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday.

In a programme organised by Meerut Prant of RSS so far 3,13,393 Swamsevaks of the Prant from 14 districts have registered for participation, informed Prant Prachar Pramukh Ajay Mittal.

Elaborate arrangements are being made for the program in which the RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat will also address the Swayamsewaks. Also tight security arrangements are being made keeping in view the turnout of the massive crowd.

A Prant in RSS is made from 14 administrative districts told Mittal calling it a biggest gathering of the Sangh in which people have been invited cutting across the castes and creed lines.

Prior to this a three days congregation of 51,000 Swayamsevaks was organised in October 1998 at Ganganagar locality of the Prant but this will have a biggest gathering ever, told Mittal.

However in political circles this much-hyped program of Sangh is being seen as a pre event in view of the general election of 2019 . It is believed that RSS leaders through this program wants to promote single

Hindu identity for the society which has been divided into caste and subcastes. And this is the main agenda of this Rashtrodaya program.

” We can only eliminate castes and subcastes by promoting a larger identity of a Hindu, ” said Mittal adding that through this the Sangh is also trying to bring people closer to each other.

Citing example of Village Shabbirpur of Saharanpur where Rajput and Dalits clashed over taking out a procession of great Rajput ruler Maharana Pratap in the month of May last year, Mittal says that Shakha of RSS strengthen there to bring members of both community closer to each other. And they would participate in the program here together.

The program is being organised here in Jagriti Vihar where the venue is being decorated beautifully with saffron all around.
