Mohan Bhagwat arrives in Gujarat for RSS workshop

Bhuj:Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat arrived here today to attend a five-day workshop of Sangh pracharaks to be held in Mandvi taluka of Kutch starting tomorrow.

The workshop will be held at Swaminarayan Gurukul in Rampara-Vekra village in Mandvi taluka of Kutch district till November 15.

“Bhagwatji arrived at Bhuj today afternoon and left for the venue. He will remain present for all the five days and give his guidance to the pracharaks,” state RSS spokesperson Pradeep Jain said.

After his arrival at the airport, journalists tried to get his reaction on BJP’s debacle in Bihar. However, Bhagwat did not answer any of the questions and remained silent.

The workshop is meant for all the pracharaks (full-time workers), who are in-charge of each of the 265 divisions of the RSS spread across India.

In the past, this kind of workshop for the divisional pracharaks was held in 2010 at Champaran in Chhattisgarh, a release by Gujarat RSS said.

Apart from Bhagwat, RSS general secretary (sar-karyavaha) Suresh ‘Bhaiyyaji’ Joshi, along with many senior RSS leaders from across India, will interact with the pracharaks and guide them during the workshop, the release said.
