Story about RSS (Madhukar Dattatraya Deoras – Balasaheb Deoras ) supporting Indira Gandhi during emergency

Madhukar Dattatraya Deoras became Sarsanghachalak, the supreme leader of the RSS, in 1973. Known as Balasaheb Deoras, he became more deeply involved in politics than any earlier RSS sarsanghchalak. The following year, Deoras expressed his activist leanings by having the RSS support the “JP Movement”, an anti-Indira Gandhi movement led by Jayaprakash Narayan. There are also accounts of Balasaheb Deoras, while being incarcerated at Yerwada jail, apologising to the Indira Gandhi and offering support to her twenty point programme if the ban on RSS was lifted. T. V. Rajeswar (Former IPS – IB Chief – Governor) also mentioned in one of media interview that “RSS had specifically conveyed its support to the Congress in the post-emergency elections.”
