Never agreed to attend RSS event: Accenture MD

Chennai

Accenture Solutions managing director and head of Chennai operations, Rama S Ramachandran, was slated to be the Guest of Honour at the event.

The organisers removed his name from the invite on Tuesday with the RSS Chennai website displaying the latest programme schedule. The invite, which went viral on Monday, said the event, ‘Resurgent Bharath’, is planned to be held here on February 2 by the IT wing of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, Chennai. The chief of All India Public Outreach of the RSS, Anirudha Deshpande, is expected to deliver the keynote address that day and Zoho Corporation founder Sridhar Vembu preside as the chief guest. In a tweet, Ramachandran said, “I am not sure how this misunderstanding happened, but I have no affiliation with this group and never agreed to speak at or attend this event.” As several Twitter users vented their anger over their participation, Vembu had responded to the comments saying, “I don’t decide my views based on Twitter attacks. If you dislike which events I attend, please do what your conscience dictates and I will do what mine dictates”.
