After propagating its ideology in different towns of Telangana state, the Hindu right wing organisation called Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, also known as RSS has moved a step ahead and reportedly ratchet-up its activities in rural areas of the state.
It is said that the umbrella groups of the RSS, who were found promoting their ideology all these years, are now coming to the fore with their more vigorous activities.
All these years they were found busy in bringing the weaker sections of the majority community, such as Dalits, closer to the organisation and unifying them promoting nationalism. Now, it is learnt that the saffron organisation succeeds in gaining ground in every small village in the districts using hatemongering as a tool through its institutions and umbrella wings.
Though the leaders and activists of all the political parties are well aware of the divisive tactics being adopted by the RSS in the name of Hindutva, they are wimping-out from checking these activities fearing a backlash from the majority community during the elections.
While the RSS tried reaching people through schools and welfare activities helmed by the organisation, the Sangh leaders are consolidating the organisational structure in the name of forming sports clubs in several districts of the state.
According to reports, last year during a meeting at Ghatkesar area on the city outskirts, it was decided to form sport clubs in districts under the banner of Sangh to bring the local youths closer to the organisation. The districts which were identified for setting up sport clubs include Hyderabad, Rangareddy, Medchal – Malkajgiri, Karimnagar, Adilabad, Nirmal, Warangal etc.
It is said that all these sport clubs have scaled up their activities during the last one year. It is learnt that the local youths are being made to become a part of these sport clubs and are being institutionalised.
While reacting over the growing activism of the saffron fold in several districts, the political leaders are on the view that “the RSS is trying hard to consolidating its existence at booth level in the districts and spreading its ideology by organising daily, weekly and monthly meetings in villages where most of the people were found less informed and are easily falling prey to hands of these tactics.”
