Forty allied organisations of the Parivar are taking part in the meeting being chaired by Mr Bhagwat. Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, Home Minister Rajnath Singh; senior Sangh members Bhaiyyaji Joshi, Dattatreya Hosabale and Krishna Gopal; Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and Vishwa Hindu Parishad’s Pravin Togadia are expected to attend the meeting.
Mr Shah, along with BJP organisation secretary Ram Lal, reached Vrindavan following his meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi amid talks of a cabinet reshuffle.
The meeting, being held at Keshav Dham in Vrindavan, will review the work done by the organisations, a senior functionary said. Issues such as attacks on RSS cadre in Left-ruled Kerala and violence in Haryana after the rape conviction of Dera Sacha Sauda sect chief Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh will be discussed, he said.
This will be the first big meeting of the RSS in Uttar Pradesh after the BJP came to power in the state earlier this year.
RSS leader Manmohan Vaidya called the meet a routine affair as a platform for all sections of the Parivar to share details on the work done by them.
