Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday reiterated that India is a Hindu nation and all people living in India are descendants of Hindus.

Bhagwat stated this while speaking on the concluding day of ‘Tarunoday’, a three-day camp for the youth held here.

He also claimed that the RSS was not involved in politics, even as some people from the organisation supported a political party.

“Sangh never involves itself in politics, but some Sangh followers are in a political party. For the Sangh, all people are equal,” he added.

He appealed to the youth to take the good works of the RSS to every village of the state.

He said, “The people of India should wake up now as the world is looking at us for solution of all challenges.

India has a great history and great historians, but in this great nation not even a single dictator had taken birth”. Bhagwat said that peace was restored in the world whenever India led it. “India is the only country which has accepted diversity and remained firm over the centuries in the face of adversities because of its rich heritage,” he added.

Finance minister Capt Abhimanyu, agriculture minister OP Dhankar, minister of state Krishan Bedi and Haryana BJP president Subhash Barala were also present on the occasion.

On this occasion, Bhagwat also honoured eminent wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt.
