Kolkata: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Sunday said the organisation wants to make the country exploitation-free and full of self-respect and whole world to salute India. "We want the whole world to chant 'Bharat Mata Ki Jai'.

We want to make Bharat (India) rich, free from exploitation and full of self-respect. For that we will have to live that Bharat in our lives," Bhagwat said at the launch of a book on the life of late Madan Lal Agarwal, co-founder of Friends of Tribals Society.

The Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) chief said after partition, Pakistan did not stake claim over the name 'Bharat' because it does not accept the qualities which are in Bharat.

He said the Vedas, 'Dev Bhasha', 'Aadi Bhasha' and even the grammar of Sanskrit was created in the region that now belongs to Pakistan. "But they (Pakistan) took their own name and left the name 'Bharat' for us because the qualities which they don't accept are in Bharat," Bhagwat said.

Referring to the Ramayana, whose veracity is questioned by many, Bhagwat said, "We say that it is very ancient but it is history."

On a lighter vein, Bhagwat said he was lucky to be leading RSS. "I don't know what would have happened if there was an election. But here it is appointment. I am lucky," he said.

Earlier this month, the RSS chief's remark that youth should be taught patriotic slogans triggered a debate after AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi refused to chant "Bharat Mata ki Jai" citing he was not obliged by the Constitution to do so.
