A social media post is claiming that RSS Swayamsevak Sangh built India ‘s second largest COVID Centre with 6000 bed in Indore. But, is this post true?
Factcheck of “RSS built India’s largest COVID centre with 6000 beds”
The post claims that, “Second Largest Covid Centre in India. Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh has built a 6000 bed covid care centre and 4 oxygen plants in 45 acres of land in Indore.”
Fact is that this COVID Centre built by Madhya Pradesh Government which is MP’s second largest covid centre. The covid centre named as ‘Maa Ahyadevi Covid Centre’. This centre built at Radha Soami Satsang Beas (RSSB) ground in Indore. RSSB is a non-profit organisation which has no political link. RSSB is basically punjab based spiritual organization.
To build this COVID centre, many businessman and industrialist donated money. It works in coordination with industrialist and businessman by government.
RSS workers are volunteering in that Covid care centre. Many RSS workers came forward to offer free service to COVID patients in this centre. Also, RSS proposed to Madhya Pradesh government to convert all the 211 schools run by them into quarantine centre. These schools could as a vaccination centers too.
In short, this ‘Maa Ahilyadevi Covid Centre’ did not build by RSS but volunteered by them.
