300 RSS workers to resign protesting Subhash Velingkar’s removal
Upset with the removal of Subhash Velingkar as Goa RSS chief, over 300 Sangh workers have annouced that they will quit the organisation and vowed to “defeat” BJP in the Assembly polls next year if he is not reinstated.
RSS on Wednesday removed Velingkar who had crossed swords with BJP government over the issue of medium of instruction (MOI) in schools with members of his outfit BBSM even showing black flags to party chief Amit Shahrecently. The Sangh said he was trying to engage into “political activity” which is contrary to its tradition.
“We want that either Velingkar should be reinstated or we (over 300 volunteers) all should be relieved along with him. Since the Sangh has not reinstated him (Velingkar) during the entire day, we have decided to tender resignations,” Sangh member Pravin Nesvankar told reporters late last night here.
A large number of RSS workers from the state last night held an ’emergency’ meeting for over three hours at Bambolim near here in the backdrop of Velingkar’s removal.Read more
