MUMBAI: BJP president Amit Shah on Friday called on RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat in Nagpur and held a closed door discussion.

On his arrival in Nagpur, Shah first visited Diksha Bhoomi, where Dr B R Ambedkar had adopted Buddhism in 1956. He then went to Reshim Baug to pay homage to RSS founder Dr K B Hedgewar. State BJP president Devendra Fadnavis and Leader of Opposition Vinod Tawde accompanied him.

Shah called on Bhagwat and RSS general secretary Suresh Joshi at the organisations’ office in Mahal area. Other party leaders were kept outside the meeting room.

A source in the BJP said that they discussed national issues with Shah. “I think the RSS has made it clear that BJP will have to fight its own struggle without expecting their active support.

The RSS will not be involved in its campaign and other political activities on a large scale like it did in the Lok Sabha elections,” the source said.
