Goa RSS defies Nagpur, forms own Prant, elects Velingkar Sanghachalak

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 01 September 2016 19:49 IST

The RSS of Goa took yet another rebellious and historic step today by forming its own independent Goa Prant and appointing ‘sacked’ Subhash Velingkar as its Sanghachalak (chief).

Throwing open challenge to the Nagpur-based central leadership of the RSS, Velingkar announced at a press conference today evening that the Goa Prant RSS will not report to Nagpur till Goa Assembly election.

He also announced that the same committee members, from state to Mandal level who had resigned enmass yesterday, have been absorbed in the new Goa Prant RSS.

The Goa Prant RSS will now actively support the new political outfit the Bharatiya Bhasha Suraksha Manch will float and would work to defeat the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party – the political wing of the Sangh Parivar.

“We have 10,000 Swayamsevak and 3 lakh voters across Goa. They will vote against the BJP, unlike in the past”, said Velingkar, while calling defence minister Manohar Parrikar once again the ‘father of liars’.

Velingkar also observed that this is a first experiment the RSS cadres are doing in the country by actively supporting another political outfit than the then Jan Sangh or today’s BJP.


“The BJP generated from the RSS, the RSS did not generate from the BJP. They cannot take us for granted”, said Velingkar.

In half-an-hour elaborate press conference, Velingkar said the whole RSS of Goa has unanimously decided not to go with the agents of power – the BJP, who have compromised with its principles.

The development was yet another step forward after 400 RSS office bearers from state to village level resigned enmass last night in protest of dropping Velingkar as Goa RSS Vibhag chief.

Velingkar however refused to admit that this is a revolt against the RSS leadership.

“We are going ahead with the RSS principles and ideology. Where is the question of revolting?”, he asked.

He recalled that a resolution (No 2) to impart primary education in mother tongue was taken at the RSS activists’ conference held on 13th March 2015.

Lele is back into the fold and soon Velingkar too would be back in the original RSS.

RSS never deserts its hardcore members. This is a tactical move to appease Amit Shah, Gadkari and Parrikar trio, who matter more to Nagpur coterie as they are the sources of party and organization funds.

Everything will fall back in place because a fascist organization cannot afford wash its dirty linen in public .That would make several skeletons in their cupboard roll. There are so many organizational secrets which could be embarrassing.Besides, those who spend may years of their productive period on life with such fanatic organizations become useless , lonely and ineffective once they leave the pack.

They have no other choice but to compromise. Both sides know this equation very well.

Falsehood is the base of organizations like RSS, Ku Klux Clan, Taliban etc who claim to be saviors of their faith by proclaiming racial and cultural superiority over others.

However, in a caste ridden society in India, keeping the so called Hindus united is an herculean task. Obviously, they need faces from non brahmin communities at different levels, except at the level of sar sangh chalak.

So considering all imperatives at the time when their own party is dreaming of ascendancy all over the country, Sangh will have to

bend backwards sooner or later.

When leaders act in autocratic manner such step is necessarily required to teach lesson to them and bring improvement. Well done Mr.Velingkar. Age Bado. Save Goan Culture.
