Rahul searching for 'women' in men's hockey, says RSS

Union Minister Smriti Irani, who was in Rahul's parliamentary constituency Amethi along with BJP chief Amit Shah to address a public gathering, had termed his remark as indecent and sexist.

"In all programs and campaign in society women also are participating".

The meeting will also review the Sangh's work over the past six months, another RSS functionary said.

Senior RSS leader Manmohan Vaidya said Rahul Gandhi was asking the wrong questions and comparing apples with oranges.

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.

Dr. Vaidya told The Hindu that some news organisations had misreported that the Sangh was thinking of permitting women to attend shakhas.

He advised Gandhi to compete with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), instead of the RSS. I have never seen.

A parallel RSS wing for women - the Rashtra Sevika Samiti - holds its shakhas around noon everyday and in some places thrice a week.

On Tuesday, during an interaction with students in Vadodara, Rahul said: "Have you seen a single woman at an RSS shakha wearing shorts?"

Vaidya was speaking to the media ahead of the three-day All India working committee meeting in which all top Sangh functionaries including its chief Mohan Bhagwat and all India office bearers, and regional office bearers will take part.

While talking to mediapersons before RSS meeting, Vadya said Rahul Gandhi should get better advisors and script writers who have full knowledge of the RSS.

Mr. Gandhi also quoted in a different manner that "How many women are in the RSS?"

Trying to do that is like to trying to hold a competition between two sides, one playing cricket and the other side, hockey. "Deliberately concocted baseless reports appeared in some media that RSS will consider entry of women in shakhas".

Vaidya said that Sangh had decided way back that it will work in the midst of men, and it has all the rights to decide this.
