Caught in the act

ghar wapasi in the rss

WHAT does the RSS do when a top-ranking leader is found engaged in undesirable activities which are not acceptable to the organisation? They ask him to pack up and go back home. It is called ‘ghar wapasi’ in the RSS. Indresh Kumar, a senior RSS leader who hails from the small town of Kaithal in Haryana, is under the scanner of the RSS headquarters. He was looking after the Forum for Integrated National Security (FINS) and the Muslim Rashtriya Manch (MRM) and is considered something of a security expert within the RSS. His statements, activities and involvement with the Haryana government were found to be out of sync with the philosophy of the organisation. His nephew, who lives in Panchkula in Haryana, was found to be using his uncle’s contacts in the state for promoting allegedly nefarious activities. Sources disclosed that even Indresh was found using his clout with Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar to gain various favours for his cronies. The RSS leadership politely asked Indresh to withdraw from FINS. His complete ‘ghar wapasi’ will take time as he is still looking after the MRM but right now he has not much work to do for the ruling dispensation.
