Three - day RSS coordination meeting with BJP is going to conclude today. It has been reported that all Ministers of Narendra Modi Cabinet were in attendance at the RSS meeting in Delhi and have given presentation of their functionings before it. Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh (RSS) is a socio-cultural organization and its offshoots have been working in different fields with exemplary dedication. No body doubts its credentials in national service. But it is not a constitutional body to which Modi's ministers have to be accountable. In personal life, they may present before RSS, but as minister he/she is not accountable to it. RSS is also the doting father of BJP. BJP has interpersonal relation all the affiliates of the RSS. They are interdependent on one another. The ministers are to accountable to the PM. However, almost all ministers of Modi Cabinet lined up at RSS meet. RSS is a good organization for the nation but this does not give it a license to review government functioning and ask the entire Cabinet to be present before it. It is also an ideological mentor of the ruling BJP. BJP takes inspiration and dictation from it how to carry out government functioning smoothly from it. Prime Narendra Modi is also likely to address the RSS coordination meeting with BPJ. Modi's Cabinet is not accountable to RSS but the democratically elected Prime Minister Narendra Modi. And PM is accountable to the people. PM Modi has himself been a Swayam Sevak of RSS. He may have special regard for it. But being the Prime Minister, he is only accountable to the people of India, who have elected him. The fact is that RSS has a great influence on BJP and it guides the govt. Without the consent of RSS, Modi-led NDA govt.can not move even a step. PM Modi is also expected to be in attendance at RSS meet. There was an allegation against the UPA govt. that it dare not go forward on its own. The opposition BJP at that time alleged that UPA government was run from 10, Janpath, the official residence of Congress Prsident Sonia Gandhi. It was remote controlled by her. She is the elected member of Lok sabha and President of the ruling Congress party. NAC was constitutionally created body which gave approval to all govt. policies and programmes. RSS is neither a constitutionally created body nor an elected one by the people. So, on the issue of remote control model function, there is no difference between previous UPA and the Narendra Modi-led NDA government. It is also remote controlled by Nagpur, the headquarters of RSS. Giving presentation by the Narendra Modi's Council of Ministers before RSS is unconstitutional. It must stop. RSS may have helped BJP win LS elections and Narendra Modi elect PM, but it has no constitutional sanctity to take account of the BJP govt. at the Centre. It is said that Corporate world also helpled Narendra Modi-led BJP win LS elections but it does not mean that the government would accountable to them.

The Rashtria Swayam Sevak Sangh (RSS) is holding a three day co-ordination meeting in New Delhi with BJP to instruct it how to run the government and what to do with agriculture, industry, influx of migrants from Bangladesh and OROP. Today is the second day of the three day meeting. All senior RSS leaders and its affiliates are participating in the meeting. All the top BJP leaders, ministers, including party president Amit Shah, have been in attendance. RSS is perturbed over continued the fall of government popularity among the public since the Modi-led NDA government came to power at the Centre. RSS leaders would also discuss in detail how to fight the coming Bihar assembly elections. It is believed that RSS intends to concede the demand of ORPO by the veterans of war. It is expected to put pressure on BJP to act to concede OROP. Besides that , the continued coming of migrants from across Bangladesh and Nepal in Indian districts adjacent to the border is a matter of great concerns for RSS. it is likely to alert the Modi government about upsetting the demographic equation in the districts adjacent to the border and LoC. RSS is the fountain head of inspiration for the BJP. Without the consent from the RSS, BJP can not move even a step. Though RSS claims to be a cultural organization and nothing to do with politics, it is for the sake of public speech. What is happening is all before us. It is now for the people to know what role does RSS play in BJP government at the Centre? It is BJP's conscience keeper. The previous UPA government of former PM Dr. Manmohan Singh was alleged to be running from 10, Janpath, the residence of Congress President Sonia Gandhi. It was alleged that Singh's govt. was remote controlled by Sonia. The same thing is happening with Narendra Modi-led NDA government. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is also reported to be present in the co-ordination meeting with RSS on Friday and take sermons from Sarsanghchalak Mohan Bhagwat. Narendra Modi-led NDA govt. also appears to be running from RSS headquarters, Nagpur. Since the beginning of the RSS meeting, all the senior BJP leaders and ministers lined up to attend it and instructions. Modi govt. is also remote controlled by RSS. It acts on their advice. The RSS is likely to prod the NDA government on fears of a changing demographic profile in districts bordering Nepal and Bangladesh as the three-day coordination meeting with the BJP entered the second day on Thursday. Top ministers and BJP leaders were in attendance at the meeting being presided over by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat at a Madhya Pradesh government guest house in the national capital. It is believed that the RSS was concerned about the census data based on religion, released by the government recently, which indicated a steep rise in Muslim population in some districts in Assam and West Bengal, attributed to influx of Muslims from Bangladesh. The RSS, however, considers Hindus fleeing from Bangladesh as refugees, making a clear distinction with Muslims who enter India illegally. The recent terror strikes in Jammu and Kashmir and the Patel reservation row in Gujarat are also expected to be taken up in one of the sessions in the next two days. The RSS is considered the BJP ideological mentor.
