GUWAHATI: The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has termed the killings of people having faith in nationalistic ideology in West Bengal as “unfortunate.”
RSS joint general secretary, Manmohan Vaidya, said this while replying to a question on Murshidabad triple murder case in the state.
As already in the news, 35-year-old Pal, his pregnant wife Beauty and eight-year-old son Angan were murdered in the Murshidabad district which immediately created a sensation in West Bengal.
The bodies of Bondhu Gopal Pal, his wife Beauty, and son were found lying in a pool of blood inside their residence on Tuesday in Jiaganj area of the district.
Annoyed by the political angles given to the killings, family members of one of the victims, Bandhu Prakash Pal, denied that he had affiliation with any party.
The police has finally claimed to have solved the case by arresting Utpal Behra, who is a mason by profession. As per police statements, the crime was an outcome of a heated fight between Pal and Behra, over an insurance policy.
Vaidya was speaking after the inauguration of the three-day Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal meeting by the organisation’s chief, Mohan Bhagwat on Wednesday.
The RSS claimed that the slain teacher, Bandhu Prakash Pal was its supporter, while the family asserted that he had no political affiliation.
The meeting was attended by as many as 350 prominent RSS functionaries from across the country, as it was organised in Odisha for the first time, including the organisation’s second-in-command Bhayyaji Joshi.
Vaidya added that the meeting will be focusing on organisational activities, plans for expansion and growth of the RSS and training of karyakartas.
He further said that, it is a review of the Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha held in March.
Speaking on Ayodhya case, Vaidya added that Ram temple is not only a political issue but a matter of faith for the whole nation.
