RSS mulls women shakhas

Bhopal, Oct 11: The RSS will consider holding separate shakhas for its women cadre, a top Sangh official said on Wednesday, a day after Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi accused the organisation of having no place for women. “Except RSS shakhas, women participate in other activities like Jan Prabodhan and Jagaran (social and awakening activities). The RSS unites with a family through men. Women are not in shakhas but they support Sangh. They try to create a conducive atmosphere in their family for the Sangh work. Shakhas, Sangh shakhas for women separately...we will consider,” RSS chief spokesperson Manmohan Vaidya told reporters here. He was addressing the media on the eve of a three-day meeting of the RSS Akhil Bharatiya Karyakarini Mandal (ABKM).(IANS)
