It can be achieved only when welfare reaches all: RSS chief

Referring to Narendra Modi government’s motto SabkaSaath, SabkaVikas (all together, improvement for all), RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday said that India’s unambiguous way to be an advanced civilization went through the path of dharma. He stressed that the term ‘’Dharma’’ was not the same as the English word religion, but rather was the more profound rule that made the Indian civilization adjust material cravings and salvation.

“SabkaSaath, SabkaVikas is the call of dharma. Different countries have not come to past greatest great of most extreme individuals, where the greatest is not characterized. In India this call of dharma is the parameter for advancement and we can realize that it has been accomplished just when we give welfare to the last man,” Mr. Bhagwat said. He was present at a function in memory of Nanaji Deshmukh, applauded the Jan Sangh leader’s initiatives for rural development at Chitrakoot as an example of an Indian model of development.

He said that both Mahatma Gandhi and Jana Sangh ideologue Deen Dayal Upadhyaya stressed this standard of development through Dharma in spite of originating from various belief systems, as this was the core of “Bharat”. There should have been a harmony amongst advancement and condition, according to dharma. As dharma takes everybody and everything alone, it will be a companion of condition as well. We should look for agreement and set points of confinement to both advancement and natural security,” he added.
