A Swayamsewak demonstrates how to cycle to ministerdom and win elections on Rs 2500

When other legislators pages for car at Vidhana Soudha, he walks to the scooter stand. Only on the advice of his doctor after he started suffering from spondylitis did he purchase a car, a second-hand one at that. He is yet to set foot on foreign soil

He is S Suresh Kumar law and urban development minister in chief minister B S Yeddyurappa's minsitry. Suresh's association with the RSS started very early. He joined the organisation when he was in the fourth standard.

Suresh's involvement in underground activities protesting against the Emergency in 1975 landed him in jail for 15 months. It was his talk "on the ill effects'' of the Emergency to Commonwealth country delegates at Hotel Ashok that made the party top brass spot his leadership potential. he recalls.

"The government convinced delegates that the situation here was normal. Though there was heavy security in the hotel, I gave the police the slip and entered the bus in which the delegates were about to go to Mysore, and explained that all was not well in the country due to the Emergency,''

Let6s pray RSS continues to produce such Idealists….
