The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Monday said the remarks of its Sarsanghchalak (chief) Mohan Bhagwat about raising an army were “misrepresented”.
“Sarsanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat’s speech in Muzzafarpur [Bihar] is being misrepresented [in the media]. He had said that if the situation arises and the Constitution permits, the Indian Army would take six months to prepare society whereas Sangh Swayamsevaks [volunteers] can be trained in three days, as Swayamsevaks practise discipline regularly,” RSS spokesperson Manmohan Vaidya said in a press statement
“This was in no way a comparison between the Indian Army and the Sangh Swayamsevaks, but it was a comparison between general society and Swayamsevaks. Both are to be trained by the Indian Army only,” Mr. Vaidya said.
Mr. Bhagwat, while speaking at an RSS event in Muzaffarpur on Sunday, had reportedly said the Army takes six to seven months but we [RSS] would be battle-ready in two to three days.
