Equating the present political scenario prevailing in the country with the post-emergency situation of the late 1970s, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is likely to play an active role in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections, according to the discussions held at the ongoing Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal (ABKM) or the National Executive Council of the RSS here on Saturday.

The ABKM sees an ideological fight between the RSS and the Congress-led UPA Government which is bent on ‘tarnishing the image of the RSS’.  

“We will formulate the strategy for the Lok Sabha elections and Sah Karya Vahak will announce the decisions on Sunday. Many senior Congress leaders including Sushilkumar Shinde and Digvijay Singh have termed the RSS a terrorist organisation and none of the Congress leaders has come out against it. We  will try to ensure 100 per cent franchise in the polls for a healthy democracy and will support the party which stands closest to our demands,” RSS general secretary Dattatreya Hosabale said.
