A Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh leader from Dina assembly constituency was addressed as a BJP candidate since.

“The RSS has fully thrown its weight behind the BJP in Bihar polls. Thousands of RSS cadres and supporters from different parts of the country have been working to help the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance to defeat the grand alliance of the Janata Dal United, Rashtriya Janta Dal and the Congress” stated a BJP leader.

Another senior BJP leader communicated to IANS that RSS leaders Ram Lal, Saudan Singh and Nagenderji  would campaign in all 243 assembly constituencies and address public meetings to garner votes for BJP candidates.

The BJP is contesting 160 assembly seats with ally Lok Janshakti Party (40),Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (23) and Hindustani Awami Morcha (20) seats.

JD(U) spokesperson Sanjay Singh said a new development in Bihar polls could be the appointment of RSS leaders as star campaigners in BJP (pointing towards the backing of BJP by RSS in the polls.)

Sanjay Singh indicated that senior party leader and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar had rightly described the RSS as the supreme count of the BJP. He questioned that was it the RSS that controlled the BJP and his government alike?

With most senior leaders in the BJP having retired from active politics, the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) is now looking towards building a new leadership. Later this month, the RSS will be holding camps in Uttar Pradesh to discuss ways to identify and groom young leaders.

According to a senior RSS functionary in Lucknow, the first camp in this regard will be held in Jhansi, possibly on June 29 and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat will be attending it. Another camp is scheduled to be held in Lucknow.

“After Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, there seems to be a dearth of second rung leadership in the bhBJP. There is a need to develop leadership that will carry forward the work initiated by these two leaders.

“Rajnath Singh is a senior leader, but his age is 67. He would have crossed 70 by the time the next general elections are held in 2024. We have to identify and inculcate leadership qualities in the younger lot,” the functionary said.

He further said that identifying young talent that could be groomed for greater responsibilities was a continuous process in the organisation and it never stopped.

“It is not a sudden decision but the RSS leadership always has a vision for the future and thinks ahead. We keep finding young people with leadership skills,” the functionary added.

Earlier this month, the RSS chief had underlined the need for checking misuse of power at a four-day camp that he addressed in Kanpur.

“Those getting elected in a democratic set-up have immense power, but this does not mean that it should be misused. If the government falters at any point of time, the Sangh will give it advice and suggestions with a positive point of view,” he had said.

The RSS chief had also discussed the topics of nationalism, social equality and service in his interaction with over 600 volunteers. He also focused on qualitative development of the Sangh volunteers and apprised them of his views on dedication towards society.

The RSS leadership is also expected to come to Lucknow for a separate camp at the end of this month. In Lucknow, the RSS leaders will pay homage to senior journalist Rajnath Singh Surya, who passed away earlier this month. Surya was also a senior RSS functionary.

Officially, however, the RSS office bearers said that they had yet to receive any programme of Bhagwat and said that such camps were a ‘routine affair’. (IANS)
