Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat has reached Guwahati to kickstart his seven-day visit to the Northeast states during which he is scheduled to meet the selected pracharaks of the seven states, an RSS leader said on December 2.
The RSS leader said that Bhagwat, who arrived in Guwahati on December 1 evening, would stay in Guwahati until December 5 before leaving for Arunachal Pradesh.
“Bhagwat is scheduled to have a series of closed-door meetings with the selected pracharaks of seven Northeast states. He might visit Manipur and Nagaland before leaving the region, but that is not finalised yet,” an unnamed RSS leader was quoted as saying by news agency IANS.
Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal and top leaders of the ruling BJP would meet Bhagwat to discuss important political matters. However, he will not address any public rally.
Bhagwat’s visit to Assam assumes significance as the state is set to go to the polls in April-May next year, and the ruling BJP is undertaking all efforts to return to power in Assam for a second term.
