Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat has said that his Hindu Nationalist Organization, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), has the ability and prowess to build an army in three days, rather than the Indian Army which is likely to take six months in trying to assemble it. He said that even though their Organization is not an army outfit, they’re still disciplined like any military forces, and if the constitution allows them, or if there is an occasion or necessity, then the RSS can manage to assemble an army in three days. This is how much they are capable.
Mohan had visited Bihar for ten days, and was in Muzaffarpur when he spoke to the members of the volunteers, who had come from Bihar and Jharkhand. Mohan has been the chief of RSS since 2009, when he took over K. S. Sudarshan.
His comments haven’t been recieved well, as people on social media are accusing him of insulting the Army and their contributions to the citizens of the country, and their sacrifice for people’s safety. Speculations have also begun if his comments are going to hurt the BJP party, and if there is going to be any response from its members. People have also asked if the RSS is going to actually help the citizens of the country, and its conflict with Pakistan, incidents on the LOC in Jammu and Kashmir. The RSS, however, seems to have gone back on Mohan’s comments and have said that he wasn’t trying to make a comparison with the Indian Army and didn’t intend any disrespect to the forces.
Hey Republic and TimesNow, aren’t you going to run a #RSSInsultsArmy hashtag after Mohan Bhagwat’s statement or are such hashtags reserved only for the opposition?

Unlike Indian Army that takes months, RSS can prepare for war in three days: Mohan Bhagwat
That's such heartening news! Now let's start reclaiming Aksai Chin, Trans Karakoram and PoK by mid-week. Next week we can start occupying Pakistan and Bangladesh.
