The pracharaks will also get a new shade of socks – dark brown instead of khaki. The switch is seen as the organisation’s attempt to adapt to the changing times. With the brown trousers, RSS volunteers will now wear white shirt and black cap. Volunteers in the northern and eastern parts of the country will wear brown sweaters to beat the cold during the winter.
The RSS chief also hailed the Indian Army for conducting surgical strike across the Line of Control in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. He said the jawans have taught the neighbouring country a right lesson.
In early August, PM Modi had said that most of these ‘gau rakshaks’ were anti-social elements in the garb of cow protectors, and advised state police forces to deal with them with severity.
