New Delhi, Jan 22 (IBNS): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)’s chief ministerial candidate for the Delhi elections Kiran Bedi said that the party’s ideological mentor Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) had managed to unite India at a time when the nation was being divided, reports said.

The former top cop told an interview to NDTV on Wednesday: “The RSS was born at a time when the country was being divided. They managed to unite it.”

She said that the RSS was a “remarkable, large, national organization” and that it should be in the Guinness Book of World Records as “the world's largest social work organisation.”

Asked about RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat’s statement describing India as a Hindu nation, Bedi said she was “not an expert on the RSS and the BJP”.
