Business News/ Politics / Policy/  Rajnath Singh meets RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat

New Delhi: Ahead of the results for Bihar election results on Sunday, Union home minister Rajnath Singh met Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat at the Sangh’s Keshav Kunj office in Jhandewalan in New Delhi.

The home minister drove down to the RSS Delhi office and spent around half an hour with the Sangh Sarsanghchalak. People close to the development termed the meeting as “pre-scheduled". They said the early trends in Bihar assembly poll counting and overall political situation in the country are believed to have been discussed during the meeting.

Bhagwat had recently spoken about reservation that created a major controversy during the Bihar polls campaigning and leaders such as Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad claimed that RSS was seeking to abolish the existing reservation for the backward classes, which the RSS denied later.

The home minister has extensively campaigned in the Bihar assembly election where he addressed around 40 rallies. The BJP-led NDA, however, suffered a major drubbing at the hustings with the JD(U)-RJD-Congress grand alliance steering a stunning victory with two-thirds majority.
