RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) clarified its stand on reservation issue on Monday. It said it supports the provision of social justice enshrined in the Indian Constitution. The organization said there is no need to begin a controversy over Mohan Bhagwat‘s remarks.

RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday was speaking at a concluding session of Gyan Utsav. From here, he expressed his wish to have a discussion on reservation policy. He called for initiating a conversation between those in favor of reservation and those against it in a “harmonious atmosphere”.

Bhagwat’s comments have sparked an outcry among various caste groups and parties. Opposition parties like BSP (Bahujan Samaj Party) and Congress slashed the remarks of the leader, calling it “anti-Dalit”. Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati said messing with the reservation issue would be “inappropriate and injustice.”

Some parties even went onto alleging that these kinds of comments have exposed the “anti-Dalit-backward face” of the RSS and the BJP (Bhartiya Janta Party). Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad and Janata Dal-United’s Nitish Kumar attacked the ruling party by accusing them of being against the weaker sections.

Even, Union Minister for of State for Social Justice and Empowerment, Ramdas Athawale sided opposite to the RSS chief. Athawale replied that the reservation to the weaker and disadvantaged sections should be not touched.

Amid the controversial atmosphere, RSS spokesperson Arun Kumar expressed his concern that there was an unnecessary issue being created over Mohan Bhagwat’s remarks. He explained that the RSS Chief called for a discussion on sensitive topics like reservation in a harmonious atmosphere.

He also made the stand of his organization very clear on the reservation policy. He said that the Sangh supports reservation to weaker sections of society, be it a Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, OBCs, or economically-backward people.
