RSS is capable of changing along with time: Mohan BhagawatMarch 22nd, 2009 - 12:14 pm ICT by ANI
Nagpur, Mar 22 (ANI): Newly elected Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagawat has said that the RSS is capable of changing along with time, and would not deviate from its avowed goals.
Addressing RSS functionaries here on Saturday, he said, “We are among those organisations which easily changes with time. Our organisation, the RSS, is more dynamic than other organisations, we can even change our chief within minutes, and the organisation changes itself with consensus. Though we can change so fast, we always keep our eye on our goals,” Bhagawat said.
A veterinary doctor by profession, the 59-year-old Bhagawat replaced K S Sudarshan, who was holding the top post for almost nine years.
The election of Bhagawat came on the second day of a three-day RSS conclave at Nagpur. The change of guard in the Sangh Parivar hierarchy came at the Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha, an apex council of all Sangh Parivar outfits and frontal Organisations.
Bhagwat has held various responsibilities including district prachark for Akola, provincial pracharak for Nagpur and zonal pracharak for Bihar before being made joint secretary. (ANI)
