New Delhi: The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is expected to interact with foreign media on September 24.
Around 70 journalists from the international publications and news channels will interact with RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat wherein he will clarify all their queries on various issues “with no subject forbidden”.
The idea behind the meet is to dispel misconceptions about the RSS in the global media.
The RSS for a long time have been planning interaction with the media but a sudden trigger was the reaction of the international press after Bhagwat’s meeting with German Ambassador Walter Linder.
“Many reputed international publications criticised Linder for visiting, what they called, a fascist organisation. We realised how much misconception is there among the foreign press about a nationalist organisation like ours. As in the Sangh, we believe dialogue is the best method to dispel misconceptions”, said an RSS functionary.
“The role of the RSS during Kerala and Maharashtra floods might find a place in Bhagwat’s speech as much as the role of its many affiliates that fight for people, often going against the BJP-ruled government, said the RSS functionary.
