The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) has issued a clarification on chief Mohan Bhagwat’s statement on Sangh’s capability to form an Army in three days. Issuing a statement, Akhil Bharatiya Prachar Pramukh Manmohan Vaidya said that Bhagwat’s speech was being misrepresented. According to the statement, "Bhagwat ji had said that if situation arises and the Constitution permits, Indian army would take six months to prepare the society whereas Sangh Swayamsevaks can be trained in three days, as Swayamsevaks practise discipline regularly." Vaidya added that Bhagwat’s remark was not a comparison between the Indian Army and the Sangh Swayamsevaks, but a comparison between general society and swayamsevaks, when given the opportunity to be trained by the Indian Army.
