In the first remarks by an RSS leader on the recent elections, Kumar maintained hopes for the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections. He said the 2019 polls would be very interesting, and issues as well as “personalities” would change.
He also said that cow meat was poison. When asked if he was suggesting that cow meat should not be eaten, Kumar said, "Tobacco is also called poison and this warning is written on packets. We are not forcing anybody. We are just telling the truth. Therefore, telling the truth is not prohibiting anybody."
RSS leader Indresh Kumar on Thursday called for boycott of Chinese products during religious festivals while saying China will have to retreat from Doklam as it has no other option. He equated Chinese threats to that of a servant, who repeatedly warns his employer over pay hike and finally agrees to continue working on same salary.
