“It will be an interactive session likely to be attended by aroud 70 delegates. Those invited for the event would be given opportunity to speak. They can ask to RSS chief for any clarification about the organisation,” an RSS office-bearer busy with the preparations of the event, told IANS.

    RSS for so called swadeshi economic policies and BJP totally opposing PV Nara simba Rao economic reforms tooth and nail. Now RSS subordinate Modi pro corporate regime vigorously following economic reforms in the name of economic development shows their double standards in economic policies. Meeting intellectuals by RSS mere political stunt even they are calling themselves religious outfit.

        He better be wearing a full pant. Article should also tell us how they define intellectuals because the RSS chief will be meeting other RSS appointees. The JNU VC goes for shaka exercises in the morning and is laughed at regularly as he carries his lathi to the lawn. These clowns are now talking to themselves for a problem they created. Brainless twits trying to run country that is much smarter than them. The real solution lies with the women of BHU, listen to them and their ideas. Modi teek hoga after that.
