RSS red-flags growing Hindu Yuva Vahini clout to Yogi Adityanath

Sources have told The Indian Express that the RSS top brass is believed to have conveyed to Adityanath their reservations regarding an organisation (read HYV), on the ground, that runs “parallel” to both the RSS and the BJP.

THE growing clout and spreading footprint of the Hindu Yuva Vahini (HYV) ever since its patron and founder Yogi Adityanath became Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister has set off ripples in the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and a section of the BJP.

Sources have told The Indian Express that the RSS top brass is believed to have conveyed to Adityanath their reservations regarding an organisation (read HYV), on the ground, that runs “parallel” to both the RSS and the BJP. More so, when several complaints have come from across the state against aggressive HYV workers flexing their political — and, in some cases, physical — muscles in several “communal” incidents over the past two months.

Even the Opposition parties have been vocal in their complaints about activists wearing saffron scarves harassing people in the name of Hindutva and cow vigilantism. RSS and BJP leaders said that they are worried over the kind of impact the HYV show of strength might have on the image of the state government, particularly when the BJP has come to power after 15 years and Lok Sabha elections are just two years away, sources said.

Founded in 2002, HYV has the image of an aggressive pro-Hindutva organisation that claims to work for Hindu culture, cow protection and against untouchability. So far, HYV’s activities were confined to Gorakhpur and adjoining districts.

In the run-up to the recent Assembly elections, Adityanath sacked HYV state president Sunil Singh after the latter announced he would field candidates against the BJP. Soon after Adityanath was sworn in as CM, Rakesh Rai was appointed HYV’s new state president and P K Mall as state organisation secretary with a plan to expand HYV in other parts of the state including western UP.

When asked about the RSS’s reservations, Mall said: “This is not in my knowledge. HYV is a social and cultural organisation associated with Gorakhnath Peeth just like various other organisations run by the peeth. No one should have any objections over it.”

Last month in Gorakhpur, Adityanath held separate meetings with HYV and RSS workers. He reportedly urged HYV to maintain “decency,” not misuse saffron as the party’s colour, monitor government work and flag any discrepancies to their colleagues in HYV — not misbehave with any officer.

He is said to have told the HYV that any “indecent or illegal” act by someone in a saffron scarf could end up hurting the image of the organisation or the BJP.

As reported by The Indian Express earlier, after Adityanath took charge as CM, HYV has seen a record surge in applications — from an average of 500-1000 applications every month until February to about 5,000 applications per day.

In the face of this flood, a circular was issued from HYV’s Gorakhpur headquarters stating: “A lot of people want to join the organisation with a strategy to defame it and, hence, activities as well as background of new applicants must be checked. After induction, a newcomer will be given a post in the organisation only after working as an ordinary worker for at least six months.”

Not just the issue of HYV, sources said, the RSS has also questioned Adityanath’s frequent advisories to the BJP and other RSS affiliates (like VHP or Bajrang Dal) about not taking the law in their hands. Sources said that RSS pointed out that such advisories from public fora were sending a signal of rampant indiscipline among RSS or BJP workers. Sources said RSS raised these issues with the CM during a meeting called at a hotel in Lucknow today ostensibly to improve coordination between the state government, BJP and RSS’s other offshoots.

RSS’s Krishnagopal, BJP national general secretary (organisation) Ramlal, party state general secretary (organisation) Sunil Bansal, both deputy CMs Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dinesh Sharma were present at the meeting which was attended by RSS pracharaks and functionaries from across the state.

Sources said that a prant pracharak in the meeting complained that leaders of parties and organisations other than RSS offshoots and BJP were given space in government committees in corporations and boards. Sources said that CM was asked to “adjust” eligible and dedicated workers of RSS offshoots and from the BJP.

Sources said the CM assured those present that he would look into the suggestions raised at the meeting.

When asked about RSS’s advice to Adityanath regarding the HYV, RSS’s Manmohan Vaidya said, “I am not aware of this.” A similar coordination meeting between top RSS functionaries, government and the BJP was held at CM’s residence last month.

      Is it a sham publicly he says don't be violent? Does he actually mean do according to your own wish? If he couldn't prevent violence by his chelas at least did he try to correct it by meeting the affected? Did he hold anyone accountable for past mistakes, punish or reform him by making him apologise All eye wash jhumla nakhara

          If they really think they are true and mighty they should attacking the weak helpless Indian Muslims and Christians and instead send them to the border to fight stan and Isis , may be they would solve the issue of Kashmir and stop the menace of talibans and Isis . This would indeed be act of BRAVERY.

            Yogi is going to be what Sant Bhinderwale was to congress. It just a matter of time. Fun is about to begin. These truely state actors of India will do what ' mnon-state' actors are doing in purestan next door. Perhaps on bigger scale. Mody is mère bsckward -cl puppet of the hindu-terror organisations. Manmoohan Sungh was at least an intelligent one.

              Hindus would like everybody to believe that all of their terror outfits are cultural and social organizations.. These fools still believe that their schitt does not stink.All the terror outfits like vhs, bjp, rss, hyv etc. are foo hindus to grab power for themselves. They already have ized the hinduism in the eyes of others just as talibans has done to islam.

                        It would be highly advisable for the UP Chief Minister not to build up a parallel organization. Such parallel groups diminish the might of each group, finally contributing to nothing and create divisions among people. Yogi is a highly intelligent man with high ethical and moral discipline. He should be happy to go along with the party and its supreme leader, till the day when the leader leaves when he himself may take over the reins. Please have patience Mr. Chief Minister.

                              I earnestly hope that what you wrote is correct... "evil's life span is short". But if this was true, stan should have disintegrated long back, Taliban, Al Queda, ISIS etc must have perished long ago. Nothing has happened ! Why? May be evil has a lot by life.....?

                                Hindu Yuva Vahini (HYV) in spite of creating problems for the public, it is allowed to function. Where is Young Men's Christian ociation (YMCA) is termed as anti-national. Why this discrimination?

                                  HYV dose not engage in Religious conversions, HYV members are proud they are Indians. HYV members are proud of our past, Our culture, Our History and our leaders. YMCA is basically engaged in converting Hindus to Christianity. YMCA takes help of Naxels and other anti-nationals to Threaten Tribal and convert them

                                  Hindus yet owe Nathuram Godse a promise to immerse his ashes in Sindhu river flowing through free India or Akhand Bharat. Akhand Bharat was the flame ignited when we got separated from Burma stan and Bangladesh. We need to re liven the spark which has been doused over time with psuedo secular communism and religious intolerance towards Hinduism the religion of the land. Malaysia has a law favouring Bhumiputras or Muslims. We should have the same here in India as Amrutasya Putra. We need to restore Agreshwar in the Taj Mahal and ensure that the jyotir a is re installed after removing the graves there. We have to excavate all the old mosques and make them Hindu compliant by removing the Hindu Idols under the Masjid Steps. Yes mosques were built over the remains of temples with the dieties put under the steps of the mosque. Undo the past and rewind so that we can live in freedom hindavi swarajya as propounded by Shivaji and Ranjit Singh and Krishnadevaraya.

                                      HYV is a militant group that takes law and administration into their hands. If such organisations are not banned, the mobs will rule Indian streets and the country will lead to a disaster. Promoting extremism will neither benefits Hindutva nor the Hindus. It will haunt back to the promoter earlier than anti ted. Hatred breeds hatred and love breeds love. So be Hindustani!

                                          all Muslims are brahmins . the Muslims always converted them first for a better gene or breed. So many Muslims and say Manglorian Christians are Brahmins and still residing next to the famous temples . All temples from Kashi to Nashik have a lane for Muslims reserved since ages and generations. They were the priests who were converted and the temples demolished .... So check the genealogy of Indians they belong to the one gene HinduKush regions from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. That's why whether you are a Muslim in Pfakhistha or Bangladesh or Afghanistan you are denoted as Hindu even till date in Mecca or Madina by the Saudis .... Please see the brahmins at Pooja wearing whites and the Haji's wearing the same costume. Ancient Mecca was a five elements worshipper and they till date silently worship at Dwaraka ... Yes many mid eastern folks follow the five elements prayer according to vedic times and visit India. History you forget you will repeat again and again ...

But no... they will be used for cheap politics, their voice will be w nation's voice, and India sorry Hinduism will be strong. Hinduism is a way of life and it changes with time, look at the mirror.

                                              Hindu Yuva Vahini is a serious threat to RSS in the state. The RSS should ask the Chief Minister to completely distance himself from HYV and to not maintain any ociation with it ! He is the Chief Minister of the state because of BJP and RSS and hence his ociation should be only with BJP & RSS !
