Ranchi: The RSS on Thursday condemned the "continued attack" on its cadres in Kerala allegedly by the CPI(M) workers and claimed that as many as 250 swayamsevaks had been "eliminated" in the southern state since 1942.
CPI(M) cadres in collusion with the party's top leadership killed swayamsevaks and cut off limbs of several others as they found their roots being shaken by the people's inclination towards Sangh works, RSS's Jharkhand Sahakaryvah Rakesh Lal alleged.
Addressing a press conference in Ranchi, Lal said unofficially over 350 swayamsevaks were killed in the last seven decades in Kerala though officially it was 250.
Releasing a copy of the resolution of RSS' Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal held in Telengana on Wednesday condemning the killings, he claimed the Marxists were even against their former cadres who chose to leave and the present government in Kerala was "responsible for the violence".
The resolution said despite all these killings, the "morale of the swayamsevaks remained high and they were committed in taking forward the Sangh ideals".
Turning to Jharkhand, he said that there has been an increase of 5000 swayamsevaks in the last one year and the Jharkhand unit has set a target to increase 200 sakhas in the next one year.
Lal said the RSS has been working in the remotest and difficult terrains in Jharkhand for the "welfare of the people in the field of education".
The second resolution taken by the RSS's Akhil Bharatiya Karyakari Mandal (ABKM) was Integral Humanism: The Solution for Present Global Crisis.
The ABKM was of the opinion that the solution to the current challenges, emerging before the world lay in pursuing the philosophy of Integral Humanism based on the eternal Bharatiya vision as propounded by Pandit Deendayal Upadhyay.
