Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on May 25 asked the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) to clarify if it also believes that Prime Minister Narendra Modi is an ‘incarnation of God.’

Kejriwal was referring to PM Modi's recent TV interview in which he is heard saying that he was convinced that he was sent by God.

“In 2014, Modi ji said that he is the prime servant of the country. In 2019, he said that he is a Chowkidar. Now in 2024, Modi ji is saying that he was not born from his mother's womb but he is an incarnation of God," Kejriwal said in a post in Hindi on X, formerly Twitter.

Founded in September, 1925, RSS has been Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) ideological mentor and is known to have helped the party grow from a fledgling outfit to a political powerhouse.

“A senior leader of his party said that Lord Jagannath is also a devotee of Modi ji Does RSS also believe that Modi Ji is an incarnation of God? RSS should clarify its stand," the Delhi Chief Minister said.
