Bengaluru. RSS Karnataka have given clarification on the statements of former MLA Goolihatti Shekar on Wednesday.
RSS Said in its Press release that ‘Shri Goolihatti Shekhar, former MLA of Hosdurga, in an audio release, has alleged that “he was denied entry into Dr. Hedegawar’s memorial in Nagpur due to his caste”. There is no system of allowing visitors into the Sangh Karyalaya in Nagpur after registering their names. Hence, this allegation is baseless and without merit.’
‘Be it in any premises of the RSS, or in memorials like this, everyone has unrestricted access. Thousands of people from all castes and classes visit every day. The question of denial of entry to anyone has never risen.’
‘Shri Goolihatti Shekhar, who claims that this incident took place four months before the state assembly elections, has met many leaders of the Sangh since then, but nowhere did he raise the issue of this so-called ‘humiliation’. It is surprising that such an allegation is made after ten months.’
‘The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh always welcomes everyone with an open mind.’
