RSS ideologue K N Govindacharya has said there was no need to give a legal sanction to homosexuality,as the phenomenon has always existed in the society. “India has always lived with it (homosexuality). It had neither sanctioned nor promoted it. No legal sanction was required,” he said.

Regarding the BJP’s defeat in the Lok Sabha election,Govindacharya said the BJP’s lack of commitment — both during its tenure and also while in Opposition — led to its defeat. “Deviation from the concept of ekatm manavvaad was visible during this period. In Rajasthan,the number of liquor vends were increased from 600 to 3,400. Meat export rose manifold during the NDA regime. There was major tampering with the flow of the Ganges. This is not what Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay stood for. In the same series was the issue of the Ram temple,” he said during an interaction with mediapersons here on Friday. Talking about the Lok Sabha election,he said the people have rejected opportunistic alliances.

He attacked the Uttarakhand government for its policies pertaining to hydro-power projects. He alleged that the terms of contracts regarding these projects have been violated. “Contrary to the agreement signed for the Srinagar Project,the height of the dam has been increased from 63 metres to 90 metres and

the generation capacity has been increased from 200 Megawatt to 330 Megawatt,” he said. “What is their definition of a small dam? Are they willing to adhere to the international definition that these are dams with less than 15 metres of height? They talk of developing river projects. In that case,why have 14 kilometre-long tunnels been dug up to divert the flow of rivers? The fact is that they do not have resource planning,” he added.
