For the First Time RSS to Hold Meeting of Highest Policy-Making Body in Odisha

Author : Odisha Today Bureau | Posted on: 2019-10-12

Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Sarsanghachalak Mohan Bhagwat sees a bright scope in Odisha for expansion of the RSS network.

The RSS highest policy-making body will hold its seven-day annual meeting in Odisha next week for the first time in its history, in what is being seen as an effort to shore up the BJP.


Around 400 functionaries from different states and affiliated groups in a privately-managed university of Bhubaneswar between October 14 and 20.


During the period, BJP working president JP Nadda will also visit the State from October 15 to 18.


Both the leaders will attend the RSS’s Akhil Bharatiya Karyakarta Mandal meeting here, scheduled to be held from October 15 to 20.


Mohan Bhagwat will preside over several discussions with 45 RSS-affiliated bodies such as the Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh, Shiksha Vikas Samiti, Vanavasi Kalyan Ashram, Swadeshi Jagaran Manch and Dharma Jagaran Samiti and on October 12 address intellectuals from the state.


“The holding of the meeting of the RSS’s highest decision-making body in Odisha shows the remarkable growth and strength of the Odisha unit over the last two decades,” Sameer Mohanty of the RSS’ Odisha (East) chapter said.


This apart, some Union Ministers are also likely to join the RSS meeting, which is considered important when the BJP is making all efforts to come to power in the State in coming days.


The BJP’s member of Parliament from Bargarh Suresh Pujari said that with two lakh swayamsevaks and 2000 shakhas in the state, the RSS has been a quiet yet robust force that worked for the success of the BJP.


The BJP made impressive gains in Odisha by winning eight of the 21 Lok Sabha seats and 23 of 147 assembly seats at assembly and Lok Sabha elections held earlier this year.


Leaders of Odisha’s ruling BJD were circumspect in their remarks and senior MLA Pratap Deb said he would wait for the RSS meeting to get over before commenting.
