Dharwad, October 30 (UNI) Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh General Secretary Dattatreya Hosabole said on Saturday that there should be a population policy in the country, and that it should be equally applicable to all strata of society.
Speaking at a press conference on the last day of the three-day meeting of the Sangh’s All-India Executive Council here on Saturday, Hosabole said that keeping in mind the availability of natural resources, a population policy should be developed. At the meeting, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat reiterated the need for population policy during the meeting. A resolution on this subject has been adopted by the RSS on this subject in the past.
He also said that the RSS will organize events to celebrate 75 years of independence and that Sangh volunteers will work in conjunction with the company and various organizations to organize these events.
He also said that little is known about many freedom fighters, especially those who served time in the cell jail in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
“India’s liberation movement is unique in the world, having lasted the longest. The unity of the country has been manifested in the movement,” he said.
“For this purpose, RSS volunteers will work in collaboration with society and various organizations, and events will also be organized independently. The lives of unknown fighters of the freedom movement will be presented to society. For example, there is no information on the people serving their sentence in Kalapani, ”he said, adding that exhibitions would be organized on the lives of these people.
He also said RSS ‘shakhas’ are held in 34,000 places, weekly meetings in 12,780 places, monthly congregations in 7,900 places.
Responding to a question about banning firecrackers on Diwali, he said, “Protecting the environment is a daily task, only banning firecrackers on Diwali will solve the problem, it will not solve it.
“Firecrackers are used in many countries around the world. Therefore, we must see what type of firecrackers are to be prohibited. The subject must be looked at as a whole, the decision cannot be taken all at once. It’s also about the jobs it generates. “
On the issue of conversions, Hosabole said, “This cannot be accepted. Why is there opposition to the law to stop the conversion, it’s in front of everyone.”
“The conversion must stop. If a law is made to stop the conversion, we will salute it.”
Earlier on the second day of the Sangh’s executive meeting, a resolution was passed against him condemning community attacks on the Hindu minority community in Bangladesh.
