RSS must come clean on funds collected on Guru Purnima: Digvijaya Singh

Panaji: Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh on Saturday alleged that "huge funds" collected by the RSS on the occasion of Guru Purnima, were unaccounted as many organisations which owe affiliation to it are unregistered.

"They (the RSS) collect huge funds on Guru Purima which is unaccounted. How much money comes as 'Guru Dakshina' to the RSS... has it ever been accounted for?" Singh, who is also party incharge of Goa, said at a press conference at the Congress state headquarters here.

He also said that several organisations which owe affiliation to the RSS were unregistered and therefore it was difficult to track down the money collected.

"The unregistered organisations of RSS do not come under any act. Where does all this Guru Dakshina money go? This is something which the RSS must let us know," he said.
