One ideology, one person cannot make or break country: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Tuesday said “good countries” of the world have multitude of ideas, and one ideology or one person cannot make or break a country.

He was speaking at an awards function organised by the Rajratna Puraskar Samiti here.
“One person, one thought, one group, one ideology cannot make or break a country,” Bhagwat said.

Roots for coexistence

“Good countries of the world have all kinds of thoughts. They also have all kinds of systems, and they are growing with this multitude of systems,” he added. The RSS chief further said, “You will also find good leaders in those countries that are not in good condition. It means that all these factors are subsidiary. The main thing is quality and solidarity in society.”

Speaking of the Bhonsle family, the former royal family of Nagpur, he said it was connected with the RSS from the time of the Sangh’s founder K B Hedgewar.

While Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj founded Swarajya (sovereign state) and southern India was freed of atrocities during his time, East and North India were freed from atrocities under the rule of the Nagpur Bhonsle family, he said.

Against one nation, one election?

The RSS chief’s statement stands in contradiction with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led central government’s plan for ‘one nation, one election’. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been aggressively pushing the plan, terming it as “need of the country”.

Modi believes that elections being conducted every month at different levels affect the developmental work. Last year, during an interaction with BJP workers from across the country, PM Modi reiterated his stance on the plan and explained how one nation and one voters’ list would save time and money.
