New Delhi: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Thursday warned the anti-India forces saying that the country is strong to fight any such force. Addressing annual Vijayadashami speech in Nagpur, Bhagwat said, “If someone musters the courage to fight then there is destruction on both sides. So, in order to maintain peace, we have to be so strong that anyone doesn’t even think of harming us.”
Taking a dig at neighbouring Pakistan, RSS chief said that certain forces are antipathetic to India’s existence. Despite the new government there, the border skirmishes continue.
In Nagpur’s Reshimbagh Ground, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh is conducting this year’s annual “Vijaya Dashami” function where Nobel Prize winner and social activist Kailash Satyarthi is the chief guest. This is seen as Bhagwat’s last major address before the Lok Sabha elections next year.
At the function, the RSS chief is speaking on a range of issues and outlines the organisation’s views on the present scenario and future agenda.
The Vijaya Dashami programme and the RSS chief’s speech are among the most important events in the organisation’s annual calendar.
The function began by the ‘Path Sanchalan” (route march) of RSS volunteers in Nagpur. Last year, Bhagwat had spoken on issues like the Rohingya crisis, cow vigilantism, Jammu and Kashmir and surgical strikes.
