The fate of Ram Madhav and Muralidhar Rao hang in balance: Churning for a new team continues

The two important general secretaries in the former BJP president Amit Shah’s team – Ram Madhav and Muralidhar Rao – may not be retained as general secretaries in the new team led by president Jagat Prakash Nadda. The new president is working on the formation of his team with the consultation of the senior leadership of the party but these two leaders will either be made vice presidents or will be given some other responsibilities. On the other hand, former Jharkhand chief minister Raghubar Das is likely to be brought in the organisation as a general secretary.

 

There is a possibility that the responsibility of media management may be passed on to national spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi in view of the health condition of present media cell in-charge Anil Baluni. Trivedi may be given some bigger responsibility as he has been handling the media the best possible way. He was very articulate in Parliament debates. Rajya Sabha MP Rakesh Sinha may also be brought in to the organisation as he has the experience of working with the present president. Chances of present national secretary Sunil Deodhar being elevated to the general secretary is discussed in some quarters.

 

Sources said that Rao is almost certain to be made vice president but uncertainty still prevails over the fate of Ram Madhav. Some say that he might be sent back to the RSS as former organising secretary Ram Lal. However, both the leaders were not only hoping Rajya Sabha but also ministerial berth. One important inclusion in the organisation will be from Tamil Nadu.

 

In a situation where the BJP is focusing more in the southern states, these leaders failed to deliver especially Rao. Both the leaders belong to undivided Andhra Pradesh. Rao belonging to the present-day Telangana failed to make any mark which is very crucial for the party.

RSS chalks out a people-contact plan to make Janata Curfew a success

Generally, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is in sync with PM Narendra Modi’s decisions.  Significantly, on the issue of COVID-19, it has proactively chalked out a day-plan to make Janata Curfew a success. In a  rare move, daily shakhas of both morning and evening have been cancelled which witness maximum attendance on any given Sunday. RSS cadres are reaching out to people with different means to ensure the observance of Janata Curfew. 


It is learnt that they have got this instruction from the top that the self-imposed home stay by the people should be implemented on the ground and every possible help should be provided to people are large. No assistance even from the domestic workers is to be taken and no salary cut imposed for this period. The RSS has asked people to end the day with deep visarjan (immersion of earthen lamps)at 10 PM. The swayamsevaks are contacting people and asking them to show solidarity with one another by serving those infected with Coronavirus. They have asked the people to spend their time in cleaning their houses during the day besides doing other activities.


Sources said that this will help make Janata Curfew successful by raising awareness about it. The RSS and ABVP workers are already involved to deal with this mass-awareness exercise.

RSS: Reshuffle of assignments of senior functionaries

By IndianMandarins 16 Mar 2020

Though the outbreak of COVID-19 has forced to cancel annual Rashtriya Pratinidhi Sabha meeting in Bangaluru but changes in the organisation have been enacted for better functioning. Senior RSS functionaries have been saying that work of the organisation is expanding and 15 lakh swayamsevak will be working across the country. One of the most important change has been appointment of Sunil Ambekar as Akhil Bharatiya Sah Prachar Pramukh who was recently relieved from the responsibility of organising secretary of ABVP.

Now, the RSS will have two sah prachar pramukh under Prachar Pramukh Arun Kumar who is responsible to interact with media. Undue interference of some of the RSS functionaries in some of the government department have forced some of these changes as the objection has been reaching not only to the RSS top brass but also in the government. K N Raghunandan has been sent to Vidya Bharati.

Outgoing prant pracharak of Kanpur Sanjay Mishra has been sent to Itihas Sankalan Samiti which works in the field of History while Mukul Kanitakar’s responsibility remains unchanged but now he will be able to assert more as he is directly associated with education. J Nandkumar is also expected to get some responsibility in Kerala sooner or later. Several Prant Pracharak and Kshetra Pracharaks have been changed

RSS’ next target?

By IndianMandarins 05 Jan 2020

RSS wants to do away with the word ‘secular’ from the preamble of the Indian constitution. Some people feel that this is an attempt to make India a Hindu nation but the RSS has its own logic behind this argument. Still, a section feels that CAA, triple talaq, Ram Temple, NRC, NPR, the promise of the Uniform Civil Code and proposed population control bill is simply furthering the agenda of the RSS by the Modi government.

RSS leader J Nandkumar feels that secularism is a western concept that came into existence to fight papal dominance in governance and to get states rid of the shackles of the church that the situation does not exist in India.

The matter of world secular was discussed in the Constituent Assembly debate but was opposed by Bhim Rao Ambedkar and Krishna Swami Aiyar and it was not included in the constitution. “But Constitution was bulldozed by Indira Gandhi in 1976 to include world secular. It was done to harm Hindutva,” he added.

RSS chief and JUH chief likely to share dais soon!

By IndianMandarins 19 Nov 2019

It is not that Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat will have only close door meetings with Jamiat Ulama e Hind chief Arshad Madani and many other senior leaders of the RSS will meet Muslim leaders and scholars separately but grapevine is abuzz that he would share dais with him as well very soon. This exercise yielded results post Ayodhya verdict to let peace prevail in the country.

It is learnt that Bhagwat was supposed to participate in the centenary celebration of Darul Uloom, Deoband in Saharanpur but due to announcement of by-elections in Uttar Pradesh so the plan could not materialize but it is not yet shelved. He might share dais with him on some other big occasion.

There had been more than one meeting between Bhagwat and Madani in the prevailing situation when there was the possibility of Hindu-Muslim clash in the country.

Maharashtra mayhem: Is the BJP hitting three birds from one stone?

By IndianMandarins 17 Nov 2019

The top leadership of the BJP – PM Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah – is full time politicians unlike the opposition that wakes up from the slumber when crisis crops up. What could be the next move of the opposition, the BJP leadership plans its answer well in advance and in one such scheme Shiv Sena -- the former ally of the BJP is trapped.

They might be able to install their CM in Maharashtra but the party might become a history in the politics of Maharashtra. The public perception in the state is suggesting so. It is known to everyone that public perception has been key to the success of the BJP from long. Right from the very moment when SS started demanding chief minister’s post not only social media was abuzz but started working in subtle way but in later phases they are openly accusing the Shiv Sena for harming the Hindutva ideology. Similarly the Congress will be harmed for aligning with the SS. If the SS and Congress are sorted out things would be easy for the BJP in the state. 

So much so that even Marathies are going against the Shiv Sena that has predominantly a Marathi identity and the community being their core vote bank. An activist working in Navi Mumbai Netra Daoo said that the Shiv Sena is harming the very ideology that was groomed by Bala Saheb Thackrey. Can they tell people of Maharashtra, how would they deal with contradictions of the ideology of Shiv Sena and the Congress.

The BJP leadership is cashing in on very well on the development which apparently seems to be in the spree of marganalising its allies so they follow their dictate. So the SS is stuck in the trap laid by the BJP. “If the Shiv Sena thinks it can revolt and get the people’s sympathy, they really don’t know the public,” said BJP Party President Amit Shah, who understands people’s pulse very well.

The BJP works on the slogan of its incumbent PM that turn adversity into opportunity and his lieutenant Shah is very well executing his plans. If the alliance government of the Congress, the NCP and Shiv Sena is formed, it will collapse out of its own contradictions. This is what the BJP wants as after that the maneuvering of the BJP not only of parties, leaders but people will start.

Daoo said that people especially their voters are so angry with them that the next election is going to very dear for them as they will find it impossible to justify their decision and all such people will fall for the BJP as mid-term election is not ruled out. Even the BJP would not shy away from it. But lot more development is yet to unfold

Crouching tigress’ hidden agenda: Didi meets PM

By IndianMandarins 19 Sep 2019

Creating narrative and ground reality are two equally important things and ‘Didi’ appears to understood it very well. At least meeting of the WB CM Mamta Banerjee with the PM Modi and agreeing to meet Amit Shah suggests so.

Mamata might have been able to address a section of her voters in West Bengal but constantly being at the loggerhead with the Centre did not produce any good to her.

In fact, Didi’s one of the dearest projects lying with the home ministry has been changing name of West Bengal to Bangla. On the other hand It is believed that the moment name change takes place memory of partition of Bengals fades away which Sangh Pariwar doesn’t endorse. This has apparently been the reason that Mamata needs to meet Shah which she might have agreed reluctantly.

But the issue on which Didi failed to get approval from a leader like Rajnath Singh, getting approval of Amit Shah will be an onerous task. Let’s see how long this bonhomie continues as Shah does not give any concession to opposition.

Why did RSS chief meet 70-odd journatists writing for foreign media

By IndianMandarins 15 Sep 2019

It is not just to break the stereotype but expansion of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) too has forced the organization to clarify doubts about the organizations with the international media which was constantly under attack. As besides India, the organization has its presence in over 50 other countries.

 

The RSS chief’s interaction with 70-odd journalist writing for foreign newspapers, periodical and websites is an attempt to reach out to these scribes to explain objective for which the RSS was formed and how it works and what are its activities throughout the year.

 

When the BJP was not in power, its leaders too used to defend the RSS on many occasion especially on ideological issues but now they have to defend themselves and RSS’ expansion is at its zenith. The RSS had meetings with journalists in its roaster. Earlier, the RSS chief used to meet like-minded journalists at its Jhandewalan office quite frequently.
