At a two-day coordination meet between the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), its allied organisations associated with various economic aspects, and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the ruling party was apprised of different concerns which would also go a long way in honing the economic polices of the Narendra Modi-led NDA government.The meeting, which concluded on Saturday evening, was attended by RSS’ joint general secretary Krishna Gopal, representatives of Swadeshi Jagaran Manch (SJM), Bharatiya Kisan Sangh (BKS), Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh, Sahakar Bharati, Akhil Bharatiya Grahak Panchayat, and Laghu Udyog Bharati.Representatives of these organisations — different wings of RSS that specialise in ideological and practical aspects of their respective realms — told BJP president Amit Shah as well as Finance Minister Arun Jaitley about their problems and concerns.”We are not unhappy with the government and we want to say that categorically. This meeting was organised so that they — party and the government — can listen to us and we can listen to them. There were no complaints, only suggestions, and that too from both sides. This was for coordination,” a senior RSS leader told DNA after the meeting.Participating organisations gave their feedback to the government and the party regarding economic polices and how they have worked out with the people.Some of these organisations have been at variance with the government regarding economic policies in the past. Earlier, SJM had pressured the Modi government to regulate imports from China to save indigenous cottage and small and micro industries from falling prey to glut of substandard but cheap produce from the neighbouring country. SJM has also been a longtime critique of the Niti Aayog, alleging that it was populated by experts who were ‘pro-liberalisation’ and ‘anti-people’.The SJM, sources said, had raised its concerns over Chinese imports at the coordination meet. Laghu Udyog Bharati too had joined the SJM over the issue.The Bharatiya Kisan Sangh, which has criticised the government for forcing farmers to sell their produce at lower prices, a factor that has angered the farming communities across the country, also raised its concerns regarding farmers’ plight.
