Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday met RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat at the Sangh headquarters here and discussed the national political scenario as the Narendra Modi government at the Centre is completing its first year in power.
Though Singh declined to comment on what transpired at the two-hour closed door meeting with Bhagwat, sources said that important issues including the land bill figured in the interaction.
- Will RSS chief be stamped ‘anti-national’ for speaking on corruption, asks Sena
- Why the RSS chief executive’s election is important
- RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat in Varanasi to recruit, speak ideology
- Army remark insulting, Mohan Bhagwat should apologise: Mayawati
- Mohan Bhagwat’s Army remark ‘an insult to every Indian’, says Rahul Gandhi; RSS issues clarification
- Amid protests over land bill, Amit Shah meets RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat
The meeting also assumed significance in the backdrop of Singh’s recent statement that the government has no plans to come out with a legislation on building Ram temple in Ayodhya since BJP does not have majority of its own in the Rajya Sabha and that the government would wait for Supreme Court verdict on the issue.
When asked by reporters on the topics that figured during his discussion with the Sangh chief, Singh’s curt reply was “Our bonding will continue.”
He mentioned that this was his first visit to Nagpur after becoming Home Minister and since he is a Swayayamsewak (RSS volunteer), he will keep visiting RSS leaders.
The minister was tight-lipped over criticism by a section of saints who were irked with his take on the Ram temple issue.
