RSS takes a dig at UPA for barring RSS men to join Central Govt. services

New Delhi: On Saturday, the Rashitra Sevak Sangh attacked the UPA government over banning the government employees to participate in the programs organized by RSS and Jamaat-e-Islami, by saying that in many cases, this attempt by them has been proved unconstitutional by the courts.

Talking to a leading daily on the same, communication department head of the Sangh, Manmohan Vaidya said, “Banning Central government employees to participate in RSS programs has already been proved unconstitutional by courts in multiple cases.”

He added, “Banning RSS members to join Central government service is unjust and undemocratic. Such bans hardly affect RSS work and morale of Swayam sevaks. RSS does not work through state power or with the support of it. RSS works among the people, with the people and for the people.”

These remarks come at the time when the government is discussing on withdrawing a five decade old order that restricts the entry of the RSS workers in the government services. In 1966, the government had banned the employees from taking part in the programs organized by the RSS and Jamaat-e-Islami.

As of now, the RSS and Jamaat-e-Islami men will now be able to join government services following the promise made by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to withdraw the five decade old order.
