Declaring India and Nepal Hindu Rashtra was one of the many resolutions passed at the convention," Hindu Janajagruti Samiti leader Charudatt Pingale told reporters here. "The 6th All India Hindu Convention, which was organised to unite and channelise the efforts of these organisations, concluded successfully," he told a press conference. Over 342 delegates representing 132 right-wing organisations from across India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka attended the four-day convention at Ramnathi in Ponda. Pingale said the convention adopted resolutions to launch a "legal campaign" against "rampant malpractices" in administrative, commercial, educational and political domain. "Only when these sectors are able to provide clean, corruption free and pro-people services to the society will it be possible to establish Hindu Rashtra....
