Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat has said that the organisation will continue to work for elimination of anti-national forces such as terrorism and fanaticism.
Bhagwat took to Twitter Saturday to pay a tribute to RSS leader Chandrakant Sharma who died after being attacked by militants in Jammu and Kashmir's Kishtwar district on April 9.
In a message on the RSS' Twitter account, Bhagwat said Sharma's death was very painful, but his sacrifice also inspires the Sangh.
"In this time of sorrow, we resolve not to let go in vain the sacrifice committed by late Chandrakant-ji, (we)will work with more speed to remove anti-national forces such as terrorists and fundamentalists ("kattar-panthi") from this land," said Bhagwat.
When contacted, a local RSS spokesperson could not explain why Bhagwat tweeted his tribute to Sharma Saturday.
