AMN / MUMBAI
RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat today said that there was caste politics in the country because people vote in the name of caste and stressed on the need of a social transformation to end this practice.
Delivering a talk on Nationalism and Ethical Practices in Business in Mumbai, Bhagwat said in any sphere of life, be it trade or politics, the ethical practices adopted socially get reflected in politics. He added that there is a need to bring about a change.
Bhagwat said if the society is transformed, politicians could openly say that politics should not be played in the name of caste. He added politicians can rectify things up to a certain limit and that self-interests need to be sacrificed to improve things.
He further said change in the mindset of the society leads to change in the way politics is done. Bhagwat said “luxuries and prestige” are temporary and one should steer clear of them without getting affected.
