Lack of women’s safety is a matter of shame: Bhagwat

Mohan Bhagwat

Nagpur: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday lamented at the lack of safety for women, calling it a “matter of shame”. He called for equality and equal “opportunities” for women in all spheres of life.

In a stern message, Bhagwat said, “Laxman was asked to recognise Sita’s jewellery. Laxman in reply said he only recognises the Sita’s jewellery on her feet as he never looked up at her face. With such a tradition, it’s a shame that our women are neither safe inside the house nor outside. How can it be so that in spite of so many of us women are unsafe?”

Bhagwat also called for empowerment of women. He said, women need to be treated equally in their role both in running the family as well as running the country. “She will do it. Just give her opportunity, independence and little help. Don’t be a roadblock,” remarked the RSS chief.

This remark assumes significance as an independent study on women, backed by RSS, was released earlier in New Delhi. Women only survey by RSS affiliate Drishti Stree Adhyayan Prabodhan Kendra (DSAPK), released by Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman and Bhagwat, talked about women’s ‘happiness level’, dietary preferences and employment, among other issues.

On Sunday too, Bhagwat made a passing reference to that survey. He said, “Swayamsevaks do a lot of work. Women are also part of it. All those women together compiled a massive survey which was released in Delhi on September 24. On basis of that, some policies will be formulated by the Sangh”.

Bhagwat also spoke on the role of RSS for creating unity, goodwill and good behaviour in society.

“The country belongs to everyone, irrespective of differences. Diversity is an intrinsic strength of our nation,” remarked Bhagwat.

This comment comes just a day after the Ayodhya verdict that allowed the Hindu side to construct Ram Mandir in the once disputed site in Ayodhya.

DK Shivakumar

Bengaluru, July 13: Amid deepening political crisis in Rajasthan, Karnataka Congress President D K Shivakumar on Monday expressed confidence that Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot will not quit the party and called him a “sincere Congressman”.

He accused the BJP of trying to destabilise the Congress as part of their agenda. “No, he (Pilot) will not leave. I have full confidence that he will not leave. He is a very sincere Congressman like his father (Rajesh Pilot). He has built the party for the past six-seven years. He is the President (Rajasthan state unit), he has done his best for the party,” Shivakumar said.
Speaking to reporters here, he said, “there may be some issues, I’m not saying no, but everything will be sorted out.” A crucial meeting of the Congress Legislature Party (CLP) will be held at Jaipur on Monday, amid deepening political crisis in Rajasthan, and the party has issued a whip to all party legislators mandating their presence. However, Pilot, who has openly displayed rebellion against the leadership of Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has made it clear that he was not going to attend the meeting.

In a statement issued on Sunday night, Pilot had claimed that the Gehlot government was in minority and more than 30 Congress and some independent legislators have pledged support to him. Stating that BJP wants to misguide Congressmen and people, Shivakumar said they want to destabilise us, it is their agenda and they are always trying for it.

“I’m very confident, people have given us (Congress) a mandate to work (in Rajasthan). This is Corona time, we all have to work, power is next. I think good sense will prevail on all legislators and leaders,” he said. Our national leaders are there, they will sort out the issue, he said, adding that “as a Congressman I feel that we should all stand united.

Addressing the media in Jaipur, Surjewala said, “Pilot should tell us when he will come to attend the CLP (Congress Legislature Party) meeting. We have kept our doors open for Pilot and his MLAs. Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are keen to resolve the crisis.”

“In the last 48 hours, we have spoken to Pilot many times. They should put forward their views in front of us,” Surjewala said.

“We should not give BJP a chance to form the government,” he said adding that Pilot should come back to his home as he is a family member of the Congress.

“If he is angry for any reason, we will convince him,” he added.

Nobody leaves his house and family when angry, he said further.
