Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis and his ministers will meet at the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) headquarters in Nagpur on December 2.

Highly placed sources in the BJP confirmed to The Indian Express, “Senior RSS functionary and its organisational secretary Bhaiyya Joshi will interact with the ministers.”

According to sources, critical issues of the state that need to be dealt with on priority basis will be discussed at the meeting.

A senior minister in the state government said, “Basically, RSS and BJP leaders regularly hold discussions. Since the government formation, there has been no interaction even though individuals may have visited the RSS headquarters.”

Fadnavis has often maintained that RSS never interferes with the functioning of the government, but has conceded that RSS has always been a power house from where he (BJP leaders) draw their inspiration and strength and are guided on issues related to nationalism.
