RSS leader Ram Madhav’s political career is taking new shape. He has reportedly been assigned two critical jobs. One is to handle Andhra Pradesh and the other the RSS’ propaganda machinery. Ram Madhav belongs to Andhra Pradesh and is close to Vice-President M Venkiah Naidu and National Security Advisor Ajit Doval. Till now, MG Vaid was the only spokesperson of the RSS. Now Ram Madhav is pushing that dialogue. The RSS has reportedly launched a full-fledged ‘Vishwa Samvad Kendra’. To streamline the propaganda machinery, spokespersons have been appointed in all major cities. They are slated to gather news and information, make dossiers and issue photographs of Sangh activity. The Sangh’s new head office is being built in New Delhi and it will be a hi-tech centre. Another important work assigned to Ram Madhav and the newly elected Rajya Sabha member GVL Narasimha Rao by BJP chief Amit Shah is to keep a watch on Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu. Thereafter, the two have made Vijaywada their base and are, in fact, in touch with local journalists. It is also learnt that GVL has recently visited the US and met influential Andhra Association leaders but Naidu continues to have a strong grip on the powerful non-resident Andhra Association.
