RSS works with men only in shakhas, reports of women shakhas baseless

Several BJP leaders have condemned the remark and union minister Smriti Irani too weighed in, calling it indecent and derogatory to women. RSS leaders said sevika samiti functions as a separate entity, but its ideological identity upholds the same values as the sangh and places a lot of emphasis on matrutva, netrutva, kartrutva (motherhood, social leadership, professional excellence).

On his two-day visit to poll-bound Gujarat, Rahul Gandhi drew huge flak for making statement against women in RSS. "Women create an atmosphere of cooperation in families to support RSS", the RSS tweeted.

"What Vaidya said was that RSS works with men only in shakhas and through them we connect with their families".

Taking a dig at the Rahul Gandhi's speechwriters, the RSS leader said that they do not understand the Sangh. "The Congress should compete with the BJP and not with the Sangh", Manmohan Vaidya, akhil bhartiya prachar ramukh of the RSS said in Bhopal. I have never seen. "How many women are in the RSS?"

After some media reports suggested that the RSS was mulling to allow women to participate in activities of its Shakhas or units, the RSS clarified that the Rashtriya Sevika Samiti works with women. You see women in the Congress all the time. If you want to see women players, you have to go to a women's hockey match, Mr Vaidya, the RSS publicity department in-charge, responded.

On Tuesday, during an interaction with students in Vadodara, Rahul said: "Have you seen a single woman at an RSS shakha wearing shorts?" If two sides have to compete, both have to be playing the same game, he said, directly Mr. Gandhi to compete with the BJP.

RSS Madhya Bharat Prant publicity head Deepak Sharma said almost 300 delegates from across the country were expected to take part in the meet which will take place at Shishu Mandir School in Bhopal's Sharda Vihar area.

On Rahul Gandhi's attempt to compare the presence of women in the Congress to the RSS, Mr Vaidya said the RSS could not be compared with any political party.
