Protect north Indians from attacks: RSS chief

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has taken on the MNS and the Shiv Sena by coming out in support of north Indians in Maharashtra.

 

RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has asked sangh workers in Maharashtra to protect north Indians from attacks. This could be the organisation making clear its stance against any linguistic chauvinism.

 

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. 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."

 

This stance comes even as its own parivar member, the Shiv Sena upped its rhetoric against north Indians in the state taking the cue from Raj Thackeray's MNS.
