Politics makes politicians richer: Govindacharya

Raipur, April 9 (IANS) Former BJP ideologue and RSS thinker K.N. Govindacharya said here 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.

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.”
