No plan to let women in shakhas: RSS

RSS slams Rahul Gandhi over remarks on'women in shorts

RSS leaders said sevika samiti functions as a separate entity, but its ideological identity upholds the same values as the sangh and places a lot of emphasis on matrutva, netrutva, kartrutva (motherhood, social leadership, professional excellence). Senior RSS leaders have told ET that the issue of women participation is discussed frequently, but "physical games" and "timings" are preventing the sangh from letting women participate in its shakhas.

Mr Vaidya, who is the "Akhil Bharatiya Prachar Pramukh" (all India publicity chief) of the RSS, also said BJP general secretary (organisation) Ramlal had arrived in Bhopal to attend the meeting.

After some media reports suggested that the RSS was mulling to allow women to participate in activities of its Shakhas or units, the RSS clarified that the Rashtriya Sevika Samiti works with women. He should get new, more intelligent writers for his speeches, Mr Vaidya said on Wednesday evening in Madhya Pradesh capital Bhopal where top leaders of the RSS are to hold a three-day meeting beginning Thursday. I have never seen.

He advised Gandhi to compete with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), instead of the RSS.

Mr. Gandhi also quoted in a different manner that "How many women are in the RSS?"

On Tuesday, during an interaction with students in Vadodara, Rahul said: "Have you seen a single woman at an RSS shakha wearing shorts?"

"I don't know whether Rahul has asked the question because he was concerned for the Sangh or women", he said, telling the Congress vice president not to worry about the RSS but expanding his party's shrunk political base. "God knows what mistakes women have committed that they can not be a part of RSS".
