New Delhi: Days after RSS sarsanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat called for a “population policy” citing “imbalances” in the last two census reports, the RSS is likely to discuss the religious component of the 2011 census and release a statement during its annual meeting in Ranchi this weekend.
The meeting will be attended by Bhagwat, Sarkaryawah Sushil Bhaiyyaji Joshi, besides several senior leaders and representatives from RSS units in 40 prants. After a curtainraiser on October 29, Joint General Secretary Dattatreya Hosabale will hold a press conference on October 30. Joshi will address the media in Ranchi on November 1. The Sangh is likely to release a statement on the census issue at the end of the meeting.
The timing of Joshi’s press conference is crucial as it coincides with the second last phase of polling in Bihar.
Giving details of the meeting and the press meets of top leaders, RSS’s all India Prachar Pramukh Manmohan Vaidya said, “We will discuss the expansion and consolidation of RSS and the development of members in the meeting.” He said the Sangh would also discuss contemporary issues.
During his annual Vijayadashami address in Nagpur, Bhagwat had underlined the need for a population policy. “Facts and figures of last two census reports and imbalances that have come to notice as a result are being widely discussed. Our present and future is getting impacted… Whether the current systems and resources would be adequate to provide employment and basic amenities to masses after 50 years? We need to rise above vote bank politics to formulate a holistic approach, equally applicable to all citizens, towards the population policy,” he had said.
