Shillong: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat will arrive here on Saturday on a two-day visit to Meghalaya, an RSS official said on Friday.

This is Bhagwat’s maiden visit as the head of RSS to the hill state, which is the Christian majority state. According to RSS functionaries in Shillong, the Sangh is not new in Shillong and it has started way back in 1946 with a small office at Umsohsun.

The RSS chief’s visit to Meghalaya also assumed significance as the state is going to fresh Assembly elections early next year between February and March in 2023.

RSS Vibhag Karyavah, Mani Mawpat said that Bhagwat’s visit to Meghalaya is part of his routine visit as to other different states of Bharat (India).

“However, it is noteworthy, he is coming after a long gap to Meghalaya,” Mawpat said.

Bhagwat will interact with the Meghalaya’s RSS functionaries and well-wishers where he will discuss upon the present development of the organisation.

“He will also deliver a lecture in Shillong to a gathering of important personalities from different walks of life and will touch upon important issues like environment protection, village upliftment and also, will stress upon the values of family, society as well as the nation,”

Mawpat said.

Bhagwat will depart from Shillong on September 26.
