Bric a brac : Change of guard?

march may see RSS shift

Change-of-GuardTHE top-ranking leadership of the RSS, the de facto control centre of the BJP-led NDA Government, is in introspection mode as it analyses what it has achieved for India. There are many areas where the RSS feels helpless but circumstances are as such that the leadership can’t do much. There is general election in 2019 and before that many states assembly elections are going to be held in 2018. There have been reports that RSS may reshuffle its top-ranking leadership but due to the uncertain political climate, they are rethinking this strategy. Sources disclosed that Suresh Rao Joshi alias Bhaiyaji Joshi may relinquish his post and a new General Secretary (Sirkaryavahak) maybe appointed. The RSS hierarchy has one General Secretary and four Joint Secretaries. Out of these four Joint Secretaries, one can be appointed as General Secretary, which is a very important post in the RSS. The General Secretary allocates the work among RSS office bearers. Suresh ‘Bhaiyaji’ Joshi was elected as General Secretary in 2015 for three years. His term is ending in March 2018. It is known that House of RSS representatives (Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha) will meet in March where elections will be held. Suresh Soni, Krishna Gopal, Dattatreya Hosabale and V Bhaigaih assist Bhaiyaji Joshi. As per sources, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat is in favour of Bhaiyaji Joshi continuing at this juncture. If Joshi continues as General Secretary, then all the Joint Secretaries will also continue. Bhaiyaji Joshi reportedly has very cordial working relations with both Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah. gfiles end logo
