RSS changing with times: Bhagwat

New Delhi, Aug 28 ( The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) was changing with the times and would “adopt new technology” to reach out to more people, its chief Mohan Bhagwat said Friday.

“The Sangh is getting stronger and stronger. The flow of people coming to the RSS is not decreasing, only the pattern is changing,” Bhagwat told reporters here in a rare press conference.

He said the organisation was evolving and several initiatives were being taken. “As a lot of people have to go to far off places to work and cannot come to the morning shakhas (group meetings), we have started night shakhas and other programmes, including weekly meetings,” he said.

Asked about the participation of women in the Sangh activities, Bhagwati said the RSS had a women’s wing Rashtriya Sevika Samiti with 5,000 shakas and both worked together.
