Indresh Kumar tries to mitigate damage after uproar over arrogant dig at BJP, says.....

After making a controversial tatement on the BJP's performance in the 2024 Lok Sabha Elections, RSS leader Indresh Kumar has attempted to clarify his remarks. He now states that the elections demonstrate that those who opposed Lord Ram have been defeated, while those committed to restoring Lord Ram's glory are in power.

Indresh Kumar sparked a row by claiming that the BJP was limited to 240 seats in the recent Lok Sabha elections 2024 due to its "arrogance." Speaking at an event near Jaipur on Thursday, he said, "The party which did bhakti of Lord Ram and became arrogant was stopped at 240; however, it became the biggest party."

"And those who had no faith in Ram were stopped at 234," he added, referring to the INDIA bloc. "See the 'Vidhan' of Ram Rajya in democracy; those who did 'Bhakti' of Ram, but gradually turned arrogant, emerged as the biggest party; however, the vote and the power that they should have been given was stopped by God due to arrogance."

In response to the uproar, Indresh Kumar sought to mitigate the damage by clarifying, "The mood of the country is very clear at present. Those who opposed Lord Ram are not in power; those who set the goal to respect Lord Ram are in power, and the government has been formed for the third time under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi."

Kumar's remarks come after RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat also recently stated that a true 'sevak' should serve people without arrogance and maintain dignity.

RSS quells suggestions of a rift with the BJP

The RSS sources dismissed such claims as political maneuvers intended to spread confusion. The RSS sought to quell suggestions of a rift with the BJP, emphasizing that claims of discord are speculative and meant to create confusion. 

"There is no rift between the RSS and the BJP," RSS sources stated, responding to assertions, including those from opposition leaders, that Bhagwat's remarks were directed at the BJP leadership following its below-par performance in the polls.

"There was not much difference in his (Bhagwat's) speech from what he had given after the 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha polls. But it was misinterpreted and taken out of context to create confusion. His 'arrogance' remark was never directed at Prime Minister Narendra Modi or any BJP leader," the sources explained.

In his speech, Bhagwat also expressed concern over the ongoing conflict in Manipur, criticized the common discourse during elections, and called for moving on from the post-election analysis.

Opposition leaders seized on his remarks to criticize the BJP and PM Modi.
