Senior Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh leader Suresh ‘Bhaiyyaji’ Joshi has said that words such as `orphan’ and `Abla’ (helpless woman) should cease to exist. Speaking at an award function in Maharashtra’s Thane, the former RSS general secretary expressed his hope that social organizations’ efforts will eliminate terms like ‘orphan’, ‘Abla’ and ‘neglected people’ from the society’s vocabulary.

“In a society of crores of people in this country, how can anyone be an orphan? How can anyone remain marginalized in such an advanced society? Looking at the work of various social organizations, it is expected that words like orphan, ‘Abla’ and `neglected people’ will no longer be in use,” Joshi said.

Joshi presented the `Antyoday’ award, instituted by not-for-profit Rambhau Mhalgi Prabodhini, to Sadashiv Chavan of Jeevan Sangharsh Foundation who works for homeless children.

On Thursday, Maharashtra deputy chief minister Devendra Fadnavis praised Joshi and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat for their guidance in building the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in Nagpur run by ‘Dr Aabaji Thatte Seva Aur Anusandhan Sanstha’. Fadnavis recalled that he lost his father due to cancer, and talked about the difficulties faced by cancer patients and their families.

“I feel that it is thanks to Sangh’s inspiration that all of us could build such a good hospital,” he said.

Apart from the RSS leaders, Maharashtra chief minister Eknath Shinde, Union minister Nitin Gadkari, and industrialist Gautam Adani were also present on the occasion.
