Congress Seva Dal to take on RSS: Desai

Agartala, July 31,2018:  Pradesh Congress Seva Dal  organized  march and followed by convention here in Town Hall. The convention was addressed by Seva Dal national organizer Lalji Desai, Pradesh Congress president Birajit Sinha and other state leaders.  Desai speaking in the convention  urged congress to fight back the alleged anti-people BJP government here in state. After seeing the massive  gathering today  both in rally and convention Desai said it’s proved Congress is not  finished in the state in future the party will fight back and emerge victorious.       

He also talked about the dangers that the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) poses to the country as an outfit that believes in "discrimination on the basis of caste, religion and sex".    

They (RSS) want to quell all voices besides its own. They want to end the independence of all constitutional institutions," Desai  told Seva Dal members and asked them to be the vanguard of the "true spirit of nationalism and patriotism" and end the vicious design through love and perseverance.

Rahul's idea behind reviving Seva Dal into a robust organization is to challenge the hegemony that the RSS and the BJP have acquired on their narrative of nationalism and patriotism and attract people, especially rural folk, towards Congress by building a new narrative of nationalism based on secularism and peace.

Established in 1924 to combat British government through an army of volunteers when most Congress leaders were in jail, the Seva Dal had Jawaharlal Nehru as its first President.

"We have already come a long way in a short period of time. The Seva Dal volunteers no more perform salutes now. In coming days you will see Seva Dal actively participating in political programmes. It will, however, also keep doing its old duties," said Desai.
