Mohan Bhagwat, Chief, Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) said on Monday (27 June) that nation has the lot to achieve in the field of agriculture with help of science-technology research. He had also pitched for India becoming a world power, where he accepted that we have already become a teacher of the world (Vishwaguru). Bhagwat was giving a chief guests remark in an installation programme by Maharashtra Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture (MACCIA).
Our nation is in urgent need of research and technology in the field of industry, agriculture and trade to get higher yields he said. He had also shown his concerns about the unfortunate aspect of staying behind many other nations when it comes to using of technological research in all such fields.
He was also very critical about the behaviour of developed nations and said, considering the background of superpowers of the world, we will not prefer to be like them. He said, “Superpowers are very selfish and think only about themselves. Bhagwat added that it is better for India to remain as world teacher than the superpower if superpowers are so selfish. Though he termed “Being superpower is the need of the nation”.
He raised a very valid point of an existing resistance between ecology and development when the nation is marching forward on the path of success. Sarsanghchalak said that it is the result of lack of a mechanism to handle various issues that we overlook during the development process. He had also praised “Indian entrepreneurs for having the talent of sharing their wealth for social causes”.
He shared a completely new vision by Sangh to look at corporate social responsibility (CSR) with a new perspective. He said, “CSR is now enforceable by law across the world”. Bhagwat added that when this law was not structured in the nation, the traders or businessmen of that era used to build charitable dormitories, drinking water ponds and community food services for the society with their money.
He expressed the necessity to have "balancing trade laws" in place. He reiterated that in earlier days, the businessmen used to decide about utilisation of their hard earned money, that was their CSR practice.
Sangh Chief had also propagated the idea of how laws work in favour of workers in socialist countries and how the law favours industrialists in the capitalist nations leaving very little room for workers. It was then the idea of balancing laws came from Sangh chief, in the context of India. He said, “We would like to see balancing laws and mutual cooperation between capitalists and working class here in our nation”.
