Suresh Joshi, who is popularly known as ‘Bhaiyyaji’, has been re-elected as the national general secretary (Sarkaryawah) of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Saturday.
With the re-election, Joshi will hold the post for three more years. He already held the post for nine years in a row. Joshi has held this position for three consecutive terms.
The announcement came on the second day of the three-day meeting of the RSS’s Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS) which is highest decision-making body of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.
The meeting was inaugurated by RSS chief (Sarsanghchalak) Mohan Bhagwat at the Hedgewar Smarak Samiti in Nagpur on Friday. Over 1,500 delegates are participating in the event.
The meet is also slated to set an agenda for the RSS and its affiliate organisations for the next year. BJP president Amit Shah will also attend the RSS conclave.
On Day 1, the RSS passed a resolution on protection and preservation of Indian languages. This proposal is important in the backdrop of the anti-Hindi agitation in Karnataka.
