The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Thursday said that farmers protesting against the new farm laws should continue holding talks with the central government.

It also said that need for abolishment of caste-based discrimination for social harmony was one of the core agendas discussed during the three-day All India Coordination meet of RSS and 34 “like minded” organisations in Gandhinagar on Thursday.

As many as 150 senior members affiliated to RSS and other organisations attended the three day event at Karnavati Dental College in Uvarsad area of Gandhinagar which included RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, General Secretary Bhaiyyaji Joshi and BJP president JP Nadda among others.

RSS Joint General Secretary and convenor of the event Dr Krishna Gopal addressed the reporters on the third day of the meet.

When asked about Sangh’s views on the ongoing protest by farmers against the new farm laws, Dr Gopal said, “The RSS believes that the farmers should continue holding talks in a peaceful manner with the government to look for a solution. A solution will only come out if there are talks.”

Dr Gopal further said that ending caste based discrimination and setting up of social harmony was one of the core agendas of the meet.

“During the meet, we discussed various problems the country is facing such as scarcity of water, loss of green cover, lack of social harmony and disruption of family-based value system. We know that due to historic reasons, there has been caste based discrimination in society between upper castes and lower castes. We believe that all are equal in front of the God, Constitution and their mother land irrespective of their caste, language or location. Bring caste-based discrimination to end and setting up of social harmony in country was one of our agendas,” said Dr Gopal.
