RSS chief warns govt against ‘misuse of power’

The Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) has asked the elected governments to guard against “misuse of power”.

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, while addressing over 600 RSS volunteers in Kanpur, said: “Those getting elected in a democratic set-up have immense power, but this does not mean that it should be misused. If the government falters at any point of time, the Sangh will give it advice and suggestions with a positive point of view.

The RSS chief’s comments come days after the Narendra Modi government was sworn in, following the BJP’s overwhelming majority in the 17th Lok Sabha.

Bhagwat, who is on a four-day visit to Kanpur, asked volunteers not to be arrogant. “No matter how much good work you have done and how much you have helped others, arrogance takes it away,” he said.

RSS leader Mohan Agarwal told reporters: “RSS Chief also exhorted them to bring social equality, and eradicate illiteracy, drug and alcohol addiction and other social evils.”
