Today, Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat said that what Indian Army does in 6 to 7 months, our party has the capability of doing it in three days if any emergency arises.
This was said by the RSS chief while addressing the workers at Zila school ground on the last day of his six-day visit of Muzaffarpur,
"Sangh will prepare military personnel within three days which the Army would do in 6-7 months. This is our capability. Swayamsewak will be ready to take on the front if the country faces such a situation and Constitution permits to do so," Bhagwat said.
Condemning the remarks, Congress president Rahul Gandhi said Bhagwat disrespected the army.
"He should not have said this because it disrespects those martyrs who have died for our nation. It is an insult to our flag because it insults every soldier who ever saluted it. Shame on you Mr Bhagwat, for disrespecting our Army," Gandhi tweeted.
Sangh is neither a military nor a para military organisation, rather it is like a "parivarik sangathan" (family organisation) where discipline is practised like the Army, he said adding that workers are always happily ready to make supreme sacrifice for their country.
Bhagwat exhorted the RSS workers to set an example of good conduct in their personal, family and social life.
