The Congress vice president's recent remarks when he had asked a gathering of students during his election campaign in Gujarat, why there are no woman in RSS's shakhas, apparently to target the outfit for not promoting women. "Women create an atmosphere of cooperation in families to support RSS", it added. "So that unnecessarily misleading reports are not published, we chose to set the record straight", Dr. Vaidya said.

He further said that Rahul Gandhi should not make any observation of such low-level discourse without understanding the values of the 90 years old institution.

Manmohan Vaidya on Wednesday charged that like Rahul Gandhi, his father and grandmother had also raised baseless allegations on it, however, he said, the Sangh continued to flourish over the years. I have never seen. While RSS leaders admit that there are still no female office-bearers in the organisation, they add the number of women participating in the pratinidhi sabha of RSS - the highest decision-making body - has been steadily increasing. In the RSS you will never see women.

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Thursday refuted media reports which said that RSS will consider entry of women in "shakhas". "God knows what mistakes women have committed that they can not be a part of RSS".

It is like going to a men's hockey match and trying to look for women players.

A hockey analogy, for Raul Gandhi's speech for "women in short comment", Many BJP leaders have condemned the remark and union minister Smriti Irani too weighed in calling it indecent and derogatory to women.

On Tuesday, Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi had alleged that RSS discriminates between men and women and asked it why women can't be part of the Sangh.

Sources say, the top Sangh functionaries are likely to take feedback from the pracharaks from across the country on the impact of the economic policies of the BJP government on the common man. Issues related to education, human resource development and rural development are also likely to be discussed.
