Mohan Bhagwat, Sar Sanchalak of Rashtreeya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), did not wish to comment on BJP preferring to name Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as Prime Ministerial candidate.

“Discussions are going on in Delhi” is all that he told presspersons on Friday.

Mr. Bhagwat was here to participate in the four-day ‘baithak’ (meeting) of Karnatak Pranth RSS Karyakarthas that began on Friday. The ‘baithak’ was being held in Bellary after a gap of 18 years.

Around 120 RSS workers from different parts of the State, working at different levels, attended the meeting. “It is an annual meeting where the workers would be reporting about the activities, followed by a review”, a RSS functionary told The Hindu.

BJP leaders including former Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar, Leader of the Opposition in the Council Sadananda Gowda, BJP National Secretary Ananth Kumar, and BJP State unit President Pralhad Joshi are among those expected to participate in the meeting from Saturday.
