Disrupting norms during march not welcome: RSS on HC order
After Madras High Court permitted the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Monday to take out ‘route marches’ at 14 places in Tamil Nadu in November, Sangh feels that interrupting the norms and disciplines of the organization is not welcoming.
Senior leader of RSS Manmohan Vaidya said that, “Sangh has its own norms during road procession. It is an exercise. Interrupting the norms and regulation is not welcoming.”
The court said the RSS cadres should not indulge in any unlawful activities during the rallies and not raise any slogans that will affect the sentiments of others, adding, police could impose any other condition required as per law. Allowing the RSS plea, the court also said the cadres must maintain ‘dress code’ (full pant) during processions.
Vaidya also told Millennium Post that , “We maintain specific rules during rallies. We have a specific dress code. Neither we raise any slogans, nor indulge in any unlawful activities. So it is meaningless.”
Vaidya also condemned the TN government's objections that RSS route marches could not be allowed at a time when the state is scheduled to hold civic polls and while situation is volatile after the murder of a Hindu Munnani leader in Coimbatore.
