Raipur: Former BJP ideologue and RSS thinker KN Govindacharya said in raipur on Tuesday that politics has become a tool to make politicians wealthier and increase their social stature.
On the last leg of his three-day visit to Chhattisgarh, Govindacharya said: "To give new dimension to politics, Rashtriya Swabhiman Andolan is trying to bring nearly 350 organisations, including some splinter political groups, together to forge a consensus on common issues affecting society."
"Instead of floating a new political outfit, the Andolan will play a catalytic role in ensuring change in the existing political system," he said.
Govindacharya said, in Chhattisgarh the government in the name of industrialisation is defending those who are well off.
On the BJP-ruled Chhattisgarh, Govindacharya said: "A state is created to protect those who cannot protect themselves. But in Chhattisgarh, instead of becoming a tool of change in the hands of poor, the government in the name of industrialisation is defending those who are well off."
