Adressing to more than 5,000 other sympathisers who also participated in the rally, Bhagawat said, "It will do no good on being mere sympathiser". Hindutva has always embraced such diversity and so India is called a Hindu rashtra.
Highlighting the country's diversity, Bhagwat said, "Accept and respect all diversity. To bring our country back on its feet is the goal of RSS". "Sujala suphala malayajashitala...this made us open and broadminded which led us to welcome more people", Bhagwat said. "It is not a selfish or conservative motive".
The RSS chief also regretted as to how neighbors ignored Hindu culture and remains a divided nation. "It may seem hard and impossible to some, but with efforts and self-discipline, we can achieve these goals", Bhagwat added. There is a need for it. "Bharat will exist as long as Hindutva, the country's essence, exists", the RSS chief said at the Luitporiya Hindu Sammelan in Guwahati.
The RSS Chief further said that, struggling world is looking for a way of peace since 2000 years, but failed and now looking at India for it. Addressing a mammoth public function of about 50,000 RSS syamsevaks (volunteers) and people from different walks of life here on Sunday, Bhagwat tried to drive home the point that Pakistan and Bangladesh got separated from India because these countries severed its links with Hindutva. "India needs to be strong not to capture new lands, but to win the hearts of people", he added. He however admitted that it has not happened in a day or two.
Apart from senior RSS leaders--joint general secretary V Bhagaiah, Krishna Gopal Sharma and Dattatreya Hosabole, Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal, his ministers Himanta Biswa Sarma and e-chief minister Prafulla Kumar Mahanta were also present at the rally.
Fifteen xatradhikars (heads of Vaishnavite monasteries) from Assam and titular kings of communities in Assam, Nagaland and Meghalaya, attended the event at College of Veterinary Science playground at Khanapara. Though, former Congress chief minister Tarun Gogoi was also invited for the sammelan but refused to come for RSS meeting.
