RSS Leader Mohan Bhagwat suddenly has a passion for 'social justice' - reservation for the downtrodden.
He has spoken as if indirectly, if not directly, agreeing to Thandhai Periyar's principle that social justice as per the constitution must be given to SC, ST, OBC, etc- the people who have been wronged and oppressed for 2000 years.
The RSS is a movement that has from the beginning called for the abolition of the existing reservation. Why is its president Mohan Bhagwat hitting `"U" Turn now-? The same RSS, which had previously protested against the review of reservation on many platforms and called for its abolition.
This is not the first time Mohan Bhagwat has changed his voice like this; Earlier in Bihar when the Congress and Nitishkumar's party joined forces against the BJP and faced the elections, the RSS spoke against them on some platforms. President Mohan Bhagwat, then, when defeat looked looming, at the last moment, did not oppose reservation in this way, but spoke so plainly - not speaking, as he does now.
The RSS has realized that it can no longer buy votes by making many unfulfilled promises to the people. As the day by day it realizes that PM Modi is no longer a valid vote bank (Karnataka assembly election has confirmed this), the RSS needs new strategies and tricks.
No one can deny that the social justice policies of Thandhai Periyar and Dr. Ambedkar play an important role in the elections as well. That is why Mohan Bhagwat's voice has started to change. The Mandal Commission's winds of social justice have begun to blow - strongly - across India. That's why, right now... Can you put on a social justice mask at the last minute and leave a new illusion and win the election?
Mohan Bhagwat, the policy maker of the regime, is trying to do so and it is not the intention of the RSS to continue the reservation for the oppressed; It only aims to win the 2024 elections. It is a silver lining that Mohan Bhagwat disguises himself for that.
So, if he is saying honestly...will they bring reservation in the appointment of High Courts, Supreme Court Judges and District Judges, like the current reservation of seats? Will they amend the provisions of the Constitution and bring an Ordinance? Dravidar Kazhagam president K. Veeramani has challenged that? Will Mohan Bhagwat, Prime Minister Modi or Amit Shah accept it and come forward to face the election that is being promoted?
No double role!
