Bihar election 2015: Rajnath Singh meets RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat

RAJNATH

Ahead of Bihar assembly poll results on Sunday, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh met RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat at the Sangh’s ‘Keshav Kunj’ office in Jhandewala here. The Home Minister drove down to the RSS Delhi office and spent around half an hour with the Sangh Sarsanghchalak.

Sources close to the Home Minister termed the meeting as “pre-scheduled”. Sources said the early trends in Bihar assembly poll counting and overall political situation in the country are believed to have been discussed during the meeting.

Bhagwat had recently spoken about reservation that created a major controversy during the Bihar polls campaigning and leaders like RJD Chief Lalu Prasad claimed that RSS was seeking to abolish the existing reservation for the backward classes, which the RSS vehemently denied later.

The Home Minister has extensively campaigned in the Bihar assembly polls where he addressed around 40 rallies. The BJP-led NDA, however, suffered a major drubbing at the hustings with the JD(U)-RJD-Congress grand alliance steering a stunning victory with two-thirds majority.
