Editorial With Sujit Nair | “I Was And Am A Member Of RSS”: Ex HC Judge

In this episode of ‘Editorial,’ Mr. Sujit Nair discussed a noteworthy statement made by Justice Chitta Ranjan Dash, who retired as a judge of the Calcutta High Court. Justice Dash, who concluded his tenure on Monday, openly acknowledged his long-standing association with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangha (RSS). Speaking at his farewell in the presence of fellow judges and members of the bar, Justice Dash expressed his willingness to return to the RSS if they sought his assistance. “”To the distaste of some persons, I must admit here that I was and I am a member of the RSS,”” he stated. Reflecting on his 14-year judicial career, which included a transfer from the Orissa High Court to the Calcutta High Court, Justice Dash credited the RSS for instilling in him values of courage, integrity, and patriotism. He noted, “”I owe a lot to the organisation… I am there from my childhood and throughout my youth.”” Justice Dash explained that he had distanced himself from the RSS for about 37 years due to his judicial responsibilities. However, he emphasized that he never leveraged his RSS membership to advance his career, as it goes against the organization’s principles. “”I have never used my membership of the organisation for any advancement of my career because it is against its principles,”” he remarked. He concluded by affirming his impartiality throughout his judicial career, treating everyone equally regardless of their socio-economic or political affiliations, whether they were wealthy individuals, Communists, BJP, Congress, or Trinamool Congress members.
