New Delhi, July 12, 2017: RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat on Wednesday voiced Prime Minister Narendra Modi by saying that the country had a lot of hope from him to change things.
Speaking at the launch of a book, ‘The Making of a Legend’ on Modi, Bhagwat said Modi had achieved a lot of things and a lot more would be done by him in the coming days. BJP president Amit Shah was also present at the function.
The RSS chief said that Modi was able to become a successful Gujarat Chief Minister and later the Prime Minister of India because of the “journey” he undertook in years before coming to power in the state and later at the Centre. People need to read about it.
Bhagwat further said, “India has a lot of hope from Modi, who doesn’t believe that things cannot be changed or made happen. Rather, he believes and acts everything can be made possible or happen.”
He said people need to understand Modi’s personality closely, “Today we are looking at Narendra Bhai because of his personality, actions and leadership. We need to read this character closely. When we talk of talk of a personality, one is what we see and the other that needs to be seen, with open eyes. A person is more accomplished when there is no difference in the way he appears to be and the way he is.”
The RSS chief also urged the society to take up issues such as untouchability, as “there are many things that the government cannot do. The society would have to do such things on its own.”
Bhagwat said, “We have to take India to the same level as it was around 2,000 years ago.” Praising the author of the book, Bindeshwar Pathak of Sulabh International, the RSS chief said, “Anybody can write about a character. But to write after fully understanding the character of the person requires special skill. I know that this is not the first written life-story of Narendra Bhai. A few small ones have been published earlier also.”
