Allahabad: Witnessing the overwhelming nation-wide response to protests against corruption, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has decided to open a third front to create pressure on the Congress. The move is likely to give a major jolt to the Congress which has been alleging the saffron outfit of backing the protests of Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev.

The RSS has till date provided moral support to Anna Hazare and Ramdev on this issue. However, after realizing that this was not serving the purpose of targeting the Congress, the RSS has now decided to launch a nation-wide campaign from June 23, the death anniversary of Dr Shyama Prasad Mookherjee.

Through this campaign, the RSS aims to showcase its strength and revive the branches of the saffron brigade lying low.

A senior RSS member, Mohanji Tandon said, “RSS has been silently planning all its strategy and when the right time comes everyone would see the result.”

RSS in-charge of the Kashi wing, Dr Vishwanath Lal Nigam said, “Efforts are already on for reconciling and strengthening the Sangh Parivar by encouraging youth participation.” Nigam added, “The RSS is also trying to bring back the people into the Sangh who for some reasons had left the organisation.”

Youth would be given more responsibilities and for their greater participation camps would be organized in rural and urban areas in July, Nigam added.

Besides, the RSS is also planning to muster support on the issue by holding seminars, public awareness and PR campaigns.

In view of the upcoming assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh next year, the RSS is making all efforts to gain the confidence of people. It is also aiming to take the political mileage from the campaigns of Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev against corruption.
