VHP Sewa Pramukh Arvind
Chauthaiwale is no more

SENIOR Sangh Pracharak and Sewa Pramukh of Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) Arvind Chauthaiwale passed away at Safdarjang Hospital in New Delhi on March 3. He was 72. He had been admitted in the hospital following a heart attack on February 27. He was cremated at Nigam Bodh Ghat the same day.

In his tribute RSS Sarsanghachalak Shri Mohan Bhagwat said Arvindji presented an ideal of a Pracharak’s life through his conduct and also enhanced the glory of Chauthaiwale family which is totally dedicated to the Sangh work.

Born at Kamaleshwar, near Nagpur, on September 7, 1939, Arvind Chauthaiwale had close relations with second Sarsanghachalak of RSS Shri Guruji and also with the third Sarsanghachalak Shri Bala Saheb Deoras. He had six brothers and three sisters. Three of his brothers became Sangh Pracharaks. Being a teacher in Nagpur from 1954 to 1994, Shri Baburao, the eldest brother, looked after the correspondence work of Shri Guruji and then Shri Balasaheb Deoras at central office of RSS in Nagpur. The second brother, Shri Madhukar Rao, and third brother Shri Sudharkar Rao also were active for the Sangh work while doing their jobs. The fourth brother, Shri Sharad Rao, became a Sangh Pracharak in 1956 and holding various responsibilities in Vidarbha he is now staying in Nagpur central office. The fifth brother, Shri Shashikant Rao, became a Pracharak in 1961 and held various responsibilities including Prant Pracharak and Sah Kshetra Pracharak in Assam. Presently he is a member of RSS National Executive.

After doing diploma in Civil Engineering, Arvind Chauthaiwale worked in PWD in Nagpur and Amrawati for some time. Later, following the tradition of his brothers, he too became a Sangh Pracharak. He was first sent to Balasore, Orissa where he learnt Odiya and mingled with the local people. Baburao Paldhikar was then Prant Pracharak of Orissa. Working with him, Arvindji became first Vibhag and then Prant Pracharak and gave a new direction to the Sangh work. He played a key role in expanding the Sangh work in rural and Vanvasi areas of the state. During the Emergency, he worked underground and then remained in Cuttak jail for some time.

He became Kshetra organising secretary of VHP in 1998 and looked after the work of Bengal and Orissa Prants. He became the joint secretary in 2001 and looked after the Sewa Vibhag of the Parishad. After the passing away of former Sewa Pramukh Sitaram Agrawal, he became the Sewa Pramukh and central secretary last year. (By Vijay Kumar)
