A former BJP leader today said the saffron party should ponder over stopping ‘appointment’ of its organisational secretaries from the RSS after Sarsanghachalak Mohan Bhagawat distanced himself from the BJP.

During his recent visit to Ranchi,Mohan Bhagawat had said there is no relation between the RSS and the BJP in the presence of a lot of state BJP leaders,said Prem Kataruka,who had been BJP’s Jharkhand unit spokesman before resigning from the party three years ago.

The BJP has its organisational secretaries with RSS background in many states. The BJP should ponder over Bhagawat’s claims,¿ Kataruka said.

On October 4,Bhagawat had said at a function that contrary to the general belief that the BJP was of RSS there was no relation between the two because the Sangh was not in politics.

Bhagawat also claimed that RSS volunteers were in several other political parties and that their number was more in BJP.
