Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) chief on Sunday said the organisation has the ability to prepare an "army" to fight for the country within three days if such a situation arises.

The said this while addressing the workers at Zila school ground on the last day of his six-day visit of Muzaffarpur.

"Sangh will prepare military personnel within three days which the Army would do in 6-7 months. This is our capability. Swayamsewak will be ready to take on the front if the country faces such a situation and Constitution permits to do so," Bhagwat said.

Sangh is neither a military nor a para-military organisation, rather it is like a "parivariksangathan" (family organisation) where discipline is practised like the Army, he said, adding that workers are always happily ready to make supreme sacrifice for their country.

Bhagwat exhorted the RSS workers to set an example of good conduct in their personal, family and social life.
