Telangana Pradesh Congress Sevadal releases the recordings between RSS’s Chief in Rajasthan, Nimba Ram, and an employee of BVG Nagpur. Conversation of the corrupt deal is evident and they say:  “Corruption deals and commissions being discussed inside RSS headquarters in Rajasthan.”

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, abbreviated as RSS is an Indian right-wing Hindu nationalist, paramilitary volunteer organization, parent, and leader of a large body of organizations called the Sangh Parivar.

The initial purpose was to provide character training through Hindu discipline and to unite the Hindu community to form a Hindu Rashtra (Hindu nation).  The organization supports the ideals of upholding Indian culture and the values of civil society and spreads the ideology of Hindutva, to “strengthen” the Hindu community.

It drew initial inspiration from European right-wing groups during World War II from Nazism. Gradually, RSS grew into a prominent Hindu nationalist umbrella organization, spawning several affiliated organizations that established numerous schools, charities, and clubs to spread its ideological beliefs.

The RSS was banned once during British rule, and then thrice by the post-independence Indian government, first in 1948 when Nathuram Godse, who claimed to have left RSS in 1946 over ideological differences, assassinated Mahatma Gandhi then during The Emergency (1975–1977); and for a third time after the demolition of Babri Masjid in 1992.

On several occasions, it has been banned by the Indian government, for its alleged role in communal violence.
