Non-admission of mistakes causes more damage: RSS pracharak's advice

Rumblings within the BJP have already started over who is responsible for the big defeat

New Delhi: Amid rumblings after BJP's massive defeat in Bihar, a senior Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Pracharak from Gujarat on Wednesday made an oblique reference to it and warned the party that non-admission of mistakes due to continued arrogance causes more damage than admitting to shortcomings and atoning for them.

Suresh Jain, the western region Sampark Pramukh of RSS, has said that losses due to mistakes can be rectified by humbly admitting them and drawing lessons from them.

"Mistakes do happen and cause damage. But, one can make up for the losses by humbly admitting the mistakes. By not admitting the mistakes and by remaining arrogant, one suffers more damage," he said on his Facebook post.

He, however, did not name anyone in his post and made no direct reference to Bihar polls or BJP either.

Mr Jain is incidently in Gujarat's Vadodara, a state which Narendra Modi ruled for many years in a row before being elected as Prime Minister last year. The message comes two days after a humiliating defeat of the BJP at the hands of the Grand Alliance in high-stakes Bihar elections.

Rumblings within the BJP have already started over who is responsible for the big defeat, a second one in a row for BJP after Delhi. The loss is despite the around 30 rallies that PM Modi held in Bihar, besides other Union ministers and leaders.

While opposition has termed BJP's loss due to 'arrogance' of its leadership, BJP leaders within have started demanding action against those responsible for the defeat. Some NDA allies have felt remarks by some leaders cost the alliance.
