The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh brass will hold a 3-day meeting with its provincial heads in Gujarat’s Somnath from Tuesday to plan RSS activities for the next year and decide on issues related to its functioning, including tour plans and assignments for pracharaks. 

Prant pracharaks meet every July to take stock of the Sangh Shiksha Varg, the annual camp of the RSS held in Nagpur that facilitates final training of the organisation’s karyakartas that ends in May. This year, taking RSS to every mandal in every district and beginning preparations to commemorate 100 years of the RSS in 2025 will be focus points of the meeting that will see all 43 prant heads of the RSS, including RSS national office-bearers in attendance. 

Every state is divided into parts to facilitate easy operations. For example, UP has seven prants and Maharashtra four. A senior RSS leader said the highlight of the discussions would most likely be on how to increase RSS presence in every mandal of every district in the coming months. “The sangh is already present at mandal level in western UP, MP and Kerala. The attempt now is to increase RSS activity significantly in the coming days,” he added. 
This Somnath meting assumes significance as it is being held a months before the Lok Sabha elections. RSS is expected to canvassing for the BJP to help it return to power. Top RSS and BJP leaders have already started a process to review performance of all BJP Lok Sabha MPs, which would determine whether the party would give tickets to MPs in 2019. Sangathan mantris of the RSS have specifically been asked to give BJP top heads regular feedback on how the party’s MPs have performed. 

“No resolution wil be passed at the meeting. The Sangh Shiksha Varg will present a true picture of Sangh work through the year. What more needs to done for increasing sangh outreach will also be discussed,” an RSS leader said. He also said there would be stress on karyakartas spreading the message of social harmony among Hindus to dissuade them from the ‘pull’ of regional parties and to take the message of ‘national interest’ to every household.
