RSS on Women Reservation Bill
Recently, on 16 September, Dr. Manmohan Vaidya of RSS told in Akhil Bharatiya Samanvay Baithak. That Sangh inspired organizations will try to increase the participation of women in all areas of the society.
Women should play a leading role. Therefore, women’s participation should increase in all fields. Sangh inspired organizations will make efforts for this.
This topic was discussed in the Akhil Bharatiya Samanvay Baithak of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. This information was given by Dr. Manmohan Vaidya, Sah Sarkaryavah of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh on Saturday.
Dr. Manmohan Vaidya said that in Indian thinking, family is the smallest unit. The role of women is most prominent in the family. Therefore, women should play a leading role in every sector of society.
Women’s activism is increasing in the society which is commendable. In this context, increasing participation of women under the Centenary Scheme of the Sangh was discussed in the meeting.
411 conferences will be organized across the country to increase mutual contact among women. So far, 73 such conferences have been organized in 12 provinces. Which have received good response. In which more than 1 lakh 23 thousand women participated.
Are there women participation in RSS?
We must have heard many times that RSS is anti-women. Women do not work in RSS. Till date there has been no woman RSS chief. We often hear many trivial and absurd statements etc. from people.
But it is not so. All these things are not true at all. Let us tell you that RSS had created a Mahila Bing in the year 1936 itself. Which we know as Rashtriya Sevika Samiti. It is an integral part of Sangh Parivar.
Lakshmibai Kelkar met Dr. KB Hedgewar, the founder of the RSS, in 1936 and had a long discussion to convince him of the need to start a women’s wing in the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh itself.
Dr. Hedgewar advised Lakshmibai Kelkar to set up a completely separate organization. Which will be autonomous and independent from RSS.
Because both the groups were ideologically similar. Hedgewar promised Kelkar unconditional solidarity, support and guidance for the committee. Subsequently, Kelkar established Rashtra Sevika Samiti in Wardha on 25 October 1936.
“Women are the driving force for the family and the nation. Unless this power is awakened, society cannot progress.”Laxmibai Kelkar, founder of Rashtra Sevika Samiti.
