RSS Offshoots Come Together To Distribute Desi Rakhis
Raksha Bandhan is around the corner. But this time, the celebrations are bound to be different from before. This time, the sisters will tie Made In India rakhis to their brothers. In order to boycott the Chinese rakhis this year, the offshoot of Rashtriya Sevak Sangh (RSS) have come together in Delhi NCR to provide markets with desi rakhis.
Additionally, the Swadeshi Jagran Manch has also come into contact with Seva Bharati, Sevika Samiti and Durga Vahini to do the same. Further, various help groups are told to produce these rakhis. However, many of these rakhis may not be available in the supermarkets.
Ashwani Mahajan, the Swadeshi Jagran Manch member said, ” Our microfinance ecosystem and self help groups have their own distribution system. The idea is that rakhis reach sisters before Raksha Bandhan, and at a cheaper price.”
Furthermore, various various stalls have come up across the capital of the country. Additionally, 5 to 7 stalls are there in every single district of the city. Stalls are additionally present in Paharganj, Moti Nagar, Chandni Chowk, etc.
Trendy As Well As Desi Rakhis This Raksha Bandhan
In addition to this, the stalls are not only for profit making purposes. Rather, rakhis will be available for free of cost to poor people. Moreover, Meenakshi Lekhi, a BJP leader in Delhi and other individual leaders have also come up for the same. These leaders are also spearheading swadeshi as well as funky rakhis. Campaigns like ” Jai Swadeshi ” have also come up to promote the distribution of the desi rakhis.
Additionally Meenakshi Lekhi added, ” “Raksha Bandhan is an Indian festival. Then why should we be importing items for this festival from abroad? It’s time, we stand for our ethos.”
This Indian festival will be on August 3 this year. And the trendy rakhis and free distribution of these rakhis will add another dimension and colour to this festival.
