The viral photos claiming RSS helping in Cyclone Fani are from Ockhi and Titli Cyclones.

Spread the truth:

A set of few photos are viral claiming, while none other reached Orissa for help during the Cyclone, RSS did.


The message along with the photos – “ओडिशा में तूफ़ान आने के बाद कोई पहुचा हो मदद के लिए या नही लेकिन Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) के लोग जरूर पहुच गए।
मुझे खुद पर गर्व है कि मैं RSS की विचारधारा से जुड़ा हूं।”
English Translation: After the Cyclone reached Orissa, either any one came or not to help, people of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Surely did. I’m proud of being part of RSS ideology.

Post of an unofficial page named RSS with merely approx 6000 likes/followers has Approx 8400 shares



National joint General Secretary organization BJP, tweeted

सेवा हि परमोधर्म: का आदर्श लेकर फनी तूफान से पीड़ित लोगों में राहत कार्य करते हुए संघ स्वयंसेवक।

English Translation : Considering ‘Service is the highest religion’ Sangh volunteers helping people victim of Cyclone Fani







Although genuine, these photos are not from yesterday’s Cyclone Fani. RSS usually is the first to help people in such conditions and these are from last two Cyclones in India.

The image with two photos is from Year 2017, Ockhi Cyclone

Other 3 photos are from Titli Cyclone, Orissa, 2018

These 3 images were tweeted in Oct 2018
