Too much exposure? RSS plans to bid farewell to iconic khaki knickers, considers wearing pants

Jaipur: Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) will consider replacing its khaki coloured knickers with trousers at the annual meeting of Akhil Bhartiya Pratinidhi Sabha, the highest decision making body of the outfit, beginning on Friday.

"Several proposals have come up for change in Ganvesh (uniform) and this will be discussed in the annual meeting of ABPS. This will be about replacing knickers with full pants. Several proposals regarding its colour are also there but the colour will not be khakhi," Akhil Bhartiya Prachar Pramukh of RSS, Manmohan Vaidya said at a press briefing ahead of the meeting.

He said that the issue was debated in 2010 but since there was no consensus it was deferred for five years, adding that the discussion on the matter resumed last year.

Vaidya said representatives from all over the country will discuss progress in their respective areas of work, innovations, achievements and experience at the three-day meeting, conducted every year in March.

The RSS leader added 92 training programmes will be conducted in the country this year, in which 15,000-20,000 participants will take part at different levels.

"All these things will be discussed in the meeting," he said.
