REACTING to controversy surrounding Amit Shah’s son, Jay Shah, Sah Sarakaryavah of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Dattatreya Hosabale said that inquiry should be conducted only after checking the authenticity of charges levelled.
“The onus for proving the charges rests on the one who is making it,” he said.
Hosabale was interacting with mediapersons here on Thursday. He is in Bhopal for three-day meeting of Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal of RSS.
He refused to comment on GST, saying that the issue was discussed earlier.
He said, work plan of Sangh’s next three years would be prepared in meeting of Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal. The Karyakari Mandal is formed for the tenure of three years and it is completing three years in March 2018. Hence, deliberation will be held over formation of Karyakari Mandal and it will be given final shape in Pratinidhi Sabha to take place in March 2018. Report on ongoing works will be also tabled besides taking review of last six months. Discussion on ‘Karyakarta’ training will also take place, he said.
He added that RSS is making rapid progress and it’s work has increased in society. Youths play an important role in Sangh’s expansion. Through Sangh’s website ‘Join RSS’, a large number of youths are joining the RSS. As far as joining of youths through website is concerned then in comparison to 2015, there has been rise of 48 per cent in 2016 and 52 per cent rise in 2017. All these figures are from January till June. The age of youths joining Sangh is between 20 and 35 years, he said.
Sangh is also conducting activities like ‘Gram Vikas’, ‘Kutumb Prabodhan’ and ‘Samajik Samrasta’. Owing to Sangh’s work, change has been palpable in around 450 villages. Sangh also believes that if family is strong and prosperous then nation is strong. In this regard, before 15 years, Sangh started Kutumb Prabodhan in Karnataka and now this experiment is being done in entire country and its result are positive.

Sangh Shakhas are held every day at more than 34,000 places, and at 15000 places, “Saptahik Milan” programme are conducted. In other words, it is at around 49,993 places where Sangh’s Shakha and Milan programme are being conducted. He told that Sangh’s work has been good in Madhya Pradesh.
