RSS supremo Mohan Bhagwat, who is on a four-day visit to Rajasthan, discussed various issues with the members on Saturday. He interacted with the RSS Pracharaks on various issues including COVID-19, environment and climate change among others.
Bhagwat addressed the Pracharaks in small groups because of COVID-19 norms.
Mohan Bhagwat during his meetings discussed informally the new challenges being faced due to COVID-19 pandemic.
The sessions were not open for media, but Pracharaks said Bhagwat’s discussion revolved around health care models and the new economic challenges. Bhagwat will be meeting the executive wing of the organisation on Sunday.
It is learnt that Bhagwat also discussed the issue of the disintegration of the joint family system and raised concerns about the same. Bhagwat told Pracharaks that the joint family, which is the backbone of the Indian value system, and its disintegration is a matter of concern.
The RSS believes that the joint family system is India’s cultural heritage and it has helped families, particularly in the villages. He told Pracharaks that the RSS can help play a role in solving this social problem of the country under the changing circumstances.
Bhagwat has been raising these issues in meetings with the Pracharaks and recently during his visit to Uttar Pradesh, he spoke at length on the same.
