Addressing the audience RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said that the organisation has emerged as a power in the country and many people target it out of fear. Bhagwat said, "Its work gets advertised automatically when its power increases. And when its work gets popular, then people try to learn more about it. And then few people target Sangh out of fear of its increasing power which is quite natural."
