RSS chief calls Narendra Modi friend
RSS chief calls Narendra Modi friend

Allahabad: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Thursday described Narendra Modi as his "friend" but side-stepped queries on the possible projection of the Gujarat Chief Minister as BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate, saying he was "not a political person".

"He is my friend", said Bhagwat when asked by reporters what he thought of Narendra Modi.

However, when asked whether he supported the demand for projecting the Gujarat Chief Minister as the Prime Ministerial candidate, the RSS chief said, "I am not a political person.....I am not here on a political visit".
Bhagwat was speaking to mediapersons at the ongoing Maha Kumbh congregation here during which he is likely to attend the "Dharm Sansad" of Sangh Parivar outfit Vishwa Hindu Parishad.

A section of BJP leaders have demanded that Modi be declared as the party's Prime Ministerial candidate.

VHP leader Ashok Singhal had yesterday said the Gujarat Chief Minister enjoys the same popularity as that of the first Prime Minister Jawahar Lal Nehru. However, senior Vishwa Hindu Parishad leader Praveen Togadia had on Tuesday ducked queries on the likelihood of VHP pressing for projection of Modi as BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate.

"I will only say the VHP is committed to helping the Hindus achieve what is their due," he had said when asked about the possibility of VHP pitching for Modi as BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate.

On Singhal calling Modi "Hindu Hriday Samrat", he had said, "We are engaged in a collective effort. This is not the time to ponder over personal likes and dislikes".

    (Jan. 31, 2013) India's nuclear forces were a big fat zero until I persuaded them to emplace India's nuclear warheads in U.S. cities. They are still a big fat zero having failed so far to have triggered the warheads. India's Dasyu population is profoundly hostile to the king of the Aryas -- myself, who is profoundly different from India's Dasyu population even in his looks -- and committed to everlasting slavery to whites whom they helped kill over ten million Indians in just the ten years after 1857 and have been helping in crimes against me for the past 36 years. Unless India's nuclear forces stop behaving like India's Dasyu population -- such as RAW and the head of DRDO who rules out building any missiles capable of delivering nuclear warheads to the United States and is not worried that the satellite navigation the SLBM he just tested uses can be switched off by the Americans any time and that RAW provides the Americans with information on digital circuitry in India's weapons that can be used to disable them by microwave signals from satellites -- and trigger the warheads that are emplaced and destroy Washington, New York and RAW without further delay with an EXPLICIT warning that additional U.S. cities will be destroyed with warheads already emplaced in them if there is any retaliation, they will share the fate of India's Dasyu population. On January 5, 2004 I wrote about Indians "It is a thankless task to try to break their chains but I feel I should try". On October 19, 2012 I wrote "India's media, government and citizenry at large are willing participants in CIA-RAW's crimes against me and against India and deserve to be killed in their billions". India's nuclear forces can save themselves and India by steadfastly refusing to behave like India's Dasyu population. (Feb. 4, 2013) India's nuclear forces can bring the king of the Aryas back to India and suppress the Dasyu hordes that constitute India's government, media and citizenry at large participating in
