Caste census shouldn't create societal rift, turn political: RSS

IndiaTimes Thursday, 21 December 2023
RSS clarifies its stance on caste-based census, emphasizing that it should not create rift in society. The Sangh supports measures for the uplift of underprivileged sections and believes that the census should be used for comprehensive development. RSS does not oppose the idea of caste count itself, but does not want it to become a source of social discord. The statement came after sharp reactions from political parties, including Congress, who accused RSS of wanting to maintain supremacy of a certain caste. The decision on caste census will be made after consensus with all sections of society in Maharashtra.
