Maha: A museum will be built in memory of RSS founder's 1930s jungle satyagraha

Gajanan Pasodkar, CEO of the Deendayal Bahuuddeshiya Prasarak Mandal which would implement the project, told PTI that it has received a letter from the Union ministry that the process had been started. The ministry asked him to submit a detailed project report, he added. Hedgewar had led the agitation at Pusad on July 21, 1930, as part of the Civil Disobedience Movement, Sinha said on Twitter.

According to a local organisation, the Union Ministry of Culture has begun the process of establishing a museum in Pusad, Maharashtra, to commemorate a ‘forest satyagraha’ led by RSS founder Dr Keshav Baliram Hedgewar in 1930. MP Rakesh Sinha, who had demanded the construction of a museum at the ‘Satyagraha Sthal’ in Pusad, Yavatmal district, as part of the 75th anniversary celebrations, also tweeted about the development.

Similar protests, which involved non-violent breaking of forest laws to oppose the British rule, were organized at several places in the country during the historic movement launched by Mahatma Gandhi. The museum would highlight Dr Hedgewar’s participation in satyagraha and also present a light-and-sound show, Pasodkar said.
