RSS drops half-pants, trousers up for sale

Changing with the times, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Monday commenced the sale of its new uniform.

On October 11, the Vijaya Dashami day, the new uniform would be adopted – a day that would see a major change after 91 years – from half-pants to full-length trousers.
On Monday, at the RSS headquarters at Reshimbaug in Nagpur, the first batch of new trousers arrived for sale.

The trademark shorts are being replaced with brown trousers, which will be worn with other elements of the uniform, including the white shirt, black cap, brown socks and bamboo stick.

In March 13 this year, the RSS  in its Nagore conclave in Rajasthan – the Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha –  had  announced the change and it would be effective from the Vijaya Dashami day, when RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat addresses the traditional rally on its foundation day.

The change was done after a proper feedback. The new full pants – costing around Rs 250 a pair – have been tailored by an RSS regular stylist, in Akola, Rajasthan.
