RSS chief, Mohan M Bhagwat, has advised the Union government to avoid being passionate about allowing the Foreign Direct Investment(FDI) in the domestic market without properly studying its pros and cons for the long term.

Referring to the hue and cry of several Opposition and ruling parties at the Centre over allowing FDI in multi-brand retail sector and increase in FDI cap in pension and insurance sector, Mohan Bhagwat said: “FDI in various sectors, in the name of economic reforms, is detrimental to the nation’s progress.”

In the city to take part in the four-day session of RSS, Bhagwat attempted to distance himself from the tirade against Sonia Gandhi launched by Gujarat Chief minister Narendra Modi.

When asked about Modi’s claims on Congress president Sonia Gandhi’s medical expenses for her treatment abroad and related foreign visits, Bhagwat said such things are common in an election-bound state where the political atmosphere is charged up.

On the sidelines of the conclave here at Agrasen Bhavan, Bhagwat claimed the saffron outfit has not lost its ground in Jharkhand. He, however, refused to reply when asked about the continuous slide in BJP’s performance in the state. “Don’t know about BJP, ask their leaders,” Bhagwat said. (Inputs from TOI).
