By Manish Anand

New Delhi, June 10: Rashtriya Swayam Sewak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Monday called for cessation of political bitterness. Offering a moral template, Bhagwat stressed that election is a process to build consensus.

“Elections are over. The government has also been formed. Yet, discussions are taking place on causes for verdict. This is a five-year event. There is a dynamic to it,” said Bhagwat while addressing a congregation of the second-year training programme of the RSS workers in Nagpur in Maharashtra.

The RSS chief’s remarks came in the backdrop of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) failing to bag a majority in the Lok Sabha. The BJP is now dependent on the alliance partners in the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

“Election is a process to build consensus. Both the aspects of a questions should come forth in parliament,” added Bhagwat.

The statement of the RSS chief assumes significance amid indications that the BJP may not brazen its way out in parliament after the Opposition emerged stronger after the Lok Sabha elections.

“Opponents should be treated as an Opposition,” stressed Bhagwat. The RSS chief slammed the political bitterness among the parties in the elections.

“It’s not appropriate to belittle the political opponents as seen during the electioneering. It’s also not appropriate to disseminate disinformation. It’s also not appropriate to misuse technology,” lamented Bhagwat.

It may be noted that the RSS chief had lamented deepfakes during electioneering to distort his statements made in the past on the issue of reservation. “One should rise above the passion of elections to address challenges before the nation,” asserted Bhagwat.

It has been stated in some quarters that the RSS representatives had not attended the oath ceremony of the council of ministers headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the forecourt of the Rashtrapati Bhavan on Sunday.

In a significant statement, the RSS chief also mentioned the ongoing ethnic tension in Manipur. “Manipur is pining for peace for over a year. This must be addressed on priority,” asserted Bhagwat.

The BJP lost the Lok Sabha elections in Manipur. The ethnic violence has reportedly displaced thousands of the people in Manipur.

The relations between the BJP and the RSS had gained spotlight during the Lok Sabha elections. The BJP chief Jagat Prakash Nadda in an interview had claimed that the party is now strong enough to contest the Lok Sabha elections, and the support of the RSS was not needed as had been the case during the Atal-Advani era of the saffron outfit.
