Needless row being created over Bhagwat’s remarks, we fully support reservation: RSS

NEW DELHI: The RSS on Monday dismissed as “needless” the row over its chief Mohan Bhagwat’s remarks on reservation, asserting that he merely stressed on the need for mutual talks in harmony within society to address any issue.

RSS’ ‘prachar pramukh’ (publicity head) Arun Kumar said in a tweet that his organisation has made it clear time and again that it fully supports reservation for Dalits, scheduled tribes, other backward classes and those getting it on to economic grounds.

“A needless controversy is being sought to be created over RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s address at a programme in Delhi. He merely stressed on the importance of addressing issues in society through mutual talks in harmony and called for considering a sensitive issue like reservation in a similar manner,” Kumar said.
