This correspondent tried to communicate with Bhagwat at Seva Dham on Saturday. But media was not allowed to interact with him, neither were they given any detail of the meeting.
Asked about the meeting’s agenda, Sangh executives declined to divulge details except measures to strengthen RSS activities in the region would be discussed.
In December, 2017, Bhagwat visited a then Communist-ruled Tripura and urged Hindus to get organised and trained in RSS ‘sakha’ or units saying they were the only places where one could prepare for nation-building and self development.
