Terming discrimination based on caste as an inhuman practice, he said RSS opposed it and would strive to eradicate the practice. Besides, efforts would be made to inculcate cultural values in youth.

About Sangh’s programmes in the state, he said a Yoga Week would be observed at 2,170 centres as part of International Yoga Day (June 21) celebrations. A 20-day-long training camp will be held in Hyderabad and Karimnagar districts in May.

Referring to the all-India general body meeting of RSS held at Nagpur last week, he said Bhaiyyaji Joshi was re-elected as general secretary and Bagaiya from  Telangana as one of the joint general secretaries.
