'Battle ready in days' claim from RSS

Shame on you Mr Bhagwat tweets Rahul after RSS chief says 'we can make an Army'

Bhagwat had said that the RSS was neither a military nor a para military organisation adding that it was like a "parivarik sangathan" (family organisation) where 'discipline is practised like the army'. In his tweet, Rahul said that Bhagwat's speech was an insult to every Indian as it disrespects those who had laid down their lives for the country. "It is an insult to our flag because it insults every soldier who ever saluted it", Gandhi said.

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat is not new to controversy.

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Monday issued a clarification after its chief Mohan Bhagwat made a controversial statement that his organisation is capable to raise a force for the country "in three days", if the situation demanded.

President Trump, Kim Jong Un lookalikes at Olympics 'want peace'
But North Korea's record on human rights and the growing threat from its nuclear weapons program appeared out of mind. It's still unclear whether Saturday's event could be used to set up bigger meetings between the Koreas.

To this effect, Vaidya added, the statement was not a comparison between the Indian army and the Sangh Swayamsevaks, but a comparison between general society and swayamsevaks, when given the opportunity to be trained by the Indian Army. Bhagwat had stirred a row on Sunday after he compared Sangh cadre with Indian Army personnel. "Swayamsewaks will be ready to take on the front if the country faces such a situation and constitution permits us to do so", the Times of India quoted the RSS sarsanghchalak as saying. "RSS workers are ready to happily sacrifice their lives for the nation in times of crisis", he said in his speech at the Zilla School grounds in Muzaffarpur.

Other twitterati slammed Bhagwat's comments, alleging them to be an insult to the army, especially at a time when the Army is facing difficulties in Jammu and Kashmir and relations are tense on the Indo-China border.
