RSS former Akhil Bharatiya Boudhik Pramukh Ranga Hariji told that Bhaskar Rao upheld the spirit of Hindu unity. Activities for the Hindu unity had taken place in different parts of the country from 1920 to 1935. Bhaskar Rao kicked it off in Kerala wielding his most powerful arm, the spotless and perennial love.
Sethumadhavan Ji, Vanavasi Kalyan Ashram national organising secretary Harsh Chouhan Ji, Prajna Pravah Samyojak J. Nandakumar Ji, veteran BJP leader O. Rajagopal, BJP state president Adv. P.S. Sreedharan Pillai, BMS national president Adv. C.K. Sajinarayanan, senior journalist and former editor of Panchjanya Ex-MP Tarun Vijay, M. Radhakrishnan, R. Sanjayan, Renu Prakash, P.B. Rameshbabu and C. Sadanandan Master spoke on the occasion.
Union Minister Muraleedharan felicitated Smt. Kunjachechi who has been working for the Vanvasis for the last 32 years. Hundreds of workers from over Kerala including RSS and Sangh-inspired movements came together to pay homages to their Kerala Doctorji.
Tarun Vijay told in his speech that the conversion among the Vanvasis has nothing to do with religious sentiments but for disintegrating Hindus and then the nation.
Ramanunni, senior RSS pracharak and the director of PEEP (People’s Action for Education & Economic Development of Tribal People), the organisation for the welfare of the Vanvasis, told that land mafia, bureaucracy and political leaders are the enemies of the Vanvasis.
RSS Prant Karyavah P. Gopalankutty Master said that the real homage to Bhaskar Raoji is to take up one or another mission which is a part of the Sangh activity.
Addressing a seminar in connection with the centenary celebrations, Adv. Subhash Chand said that social justice and economic justice are included in Bharat’s constitution, but no provision for environmental justice in it. It adversely affects the protection of vanvasis and environment.
Vanvasi Kalyan Ashram state president K.C. Paithal wondered what stops the state government from implementing the court verdict for giving the lost land back to vanvasis; the same government is keen to implement the court verdicts for several other issues. Dr. K. Vanaja said that vanvasis used to enjoy perfect freedom in the forest, but now they are under strict orders and rules. We should shed the feeling that vanvasis are different from us. RSS Dakshin Kshetra Sanghachalak Dr. Vanniyarajan released a book on Bhaskar Rao by giving a copy to vanvasi leader Palliyara Raman. The book was authored by S. Sethumadhavan. Dr. Vanniyarajan said Bhaskar Rao was a sun who created thousands of suns.
Centenary programme organiser K.G. Venugopal told, stamp launch will be organised after the by-polls.
