RSS slams Shiv Sena

Mumbai, Jan 31: The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Sunday slammed the Shiv Sena over Marathi language issue in Maharashtra.
Mohan Bhagwat, RSS chief has issued a directive to Sangh workers to protect North Indians in the state in the wake of the Shiv Sena's Marathi Andolan.

Bhagwat said, "Whole of India is for all Indians and all Indians can earn livelihood anywhere in India. Language, caste, sub-castes, groups, tribes can be different, but all are sons of India."

He said, "This is a misconception that employment has decreased at our place because of migrants. Solution of this grievance should be found but the solution is not that you refuse people of your country to migrate to your area."

"The solution can be found if administration and government are dedicated. All political parties should rising above the vote-bank politics and consider this issue. National integration is above all else," he added.

Recently, Shiv Sena had told to the Government to give taxi permits to only those who know how to speak, read and write Marathi.

Raj Thackeray had said, "They don't know the language, they don't know the city. Maharashtra is not a Dharamshala for people from UP and Bihar. If they are plying 4,500 taxi's they have also set 4,500 homes in Mumbai."

RSS calls for settlement of Hindus in Kashmir

Bhubaneswar, Jan 27: Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) Chief Mohan

 Bhagwat called for settlement of Hindus in the Kashmir region where laws prohibit outsiders from buying property.

"Indian patriots should be more in number in our Kashmir. For this if we have to inhabit more of India lovers then we must. If people residing in Kashmir are not loyal to their motherland and do not consider themselves as Indians, then we should not hesitate to settle the state with Indian patriots," Bhagwat said.

Mohan Bhagwat has voiced concern over the violence in Kashmir.

Addressing a public meeting here, Bhagwat said: "If infiltration is taking place along the India-Pakistan border and Pakistan refuses to take any action or control it then I think Indian army should take immediate steps to check it." Bhagwat also expressed concern about the plight of Kashmiri Pandits. Admitting that the Maoist violence had its roots in societal backwardness, Bhagwat said the administration should take up developmental activities to defeat Left wing extremism. (Agencies)
