Mohan BhagwatRSS Chief Mohan Bhgwat while addressing a gathering of academicians in Agra said that ‘there is no law in the country that prevents Hindus from increasing their population’.

“Which law says that the population of Hindus’ should not rise? What is stopping them when population of others’ is rising. The issue is not related to the system. It is because the social environment is like this,” the RSS chief said.

Emphasising on the importance of education, Bhagwat said that there was a need to have more government schools with high quality education.

“We need more government schools with high quality education at affordable cost so that a common man’s child can have access to it,” he said.

When faced with complaints and demands from teachers at an event in Agra, Bhagwat told them he was not a “messenger” of the BJP-led central government and they should approach HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar.

“I know all of you are thinking that I am a messenger of the government but that is not true. I won’t be able to help you with issues like pension, work place harassment and others,” he said.

“I would request you to please write to HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar,” the RSS Chief added.
