RSS chief Bhagwat on 4-day Jammu visit: has the BJP started preparation for polls?

The chief of Hindutva fountainhead Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, Mohan Bhagwat, has arrived in Jammu on a four-day visit during which he will address a group of intellectuals and meet prominent people.

This is Bhagwat’s first visit to Jammu and Kashmir since August 5, 2019, when the erstwhile state’s special status was ended and it was bifurcated into union territories — J-K and Ladakh.

Bhagwat interacted with RSS leaders in Jammu and Kashmir at its office on Thursday.

During the next three days, Bhagwat will hold meetings with various people to get feedback on various service initiatives of the organization.

On October 2, Bhagwat will address a seminar at the General Zorawar Singh Auditorium in Jammu University.

Though the Sangh maintains that Bhagwat’s stay at Jammu remains an organizational matter only and not to do with any political activities but experts said that the right-wing leader will participate in many programs and he is scheduled to meet intellectual think tanks and several politicians from BJP.

“RSS never openly support political parties but it’s inclined towards right-wing BJP is an open secret,” a political expert said, asking has the BJP has begun to poll preparations for Jammu and Kashmir.

“The Sangh chief will definitely convey his message to its large cadre for making a cozy atmosphere for BJP candidates.”

Earlier, in the year 2016, he had visited Jammu.

The RSS official statement said Bhagwat will review the ongoing projects initiated by the RSS in Jammu and Kashmir in various fields including Sewa, education, public awareness, health, rural development, ecology, water conservation, social equality, etc.
