Ahmedabad: Amidst bitter infighting among various factions of the Gujarat BJP, the RSS on Wedesday attempted to dispel the perception that it has taken Chief Minister Narendra Modi's side by stating that the Sangh does not take any decision under political pressure.
     
The RSS said that the infighting is the internal matter of the party but the Sangh in such a situation remains in touch with leaders and discusses with them what should be their role as a 'swayamsevak'.
    
The Sanjay Joshi feud, the issue of reliving pracharak Bhaskar Rao Damle, who is supporter of anti-Modi group leader within BJP Keshubhai Patel from its state executive and Modi's bid for prime ministerial post, have created an impression that the RSS is supporting Modi.
    
In an interview published in 'Sadhna', a Gujarati mouthpiece of the RSS at Ahmedabad, Gujarat region head of the organisation Jayantibhai Bhadesia denied that removal of Damle or any other decision were taken under political or any other pressure from the state chief minister.
    
"RSS never takes any decision under political pressure. Throughout the years, RSS has continued to stick to its own system and well defined policies," Bhadesia said.
    
"It (infighting) is the internal matter of BJP. RSS believes that everybody has to mind its own business, Bhadesia said.
