NEW DELHI: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat would travel to England on a weeklong visit to address the conference of Sangh organisation which completes its 50 years.

Bhagwat is likely to address a gathering of over 10,000 Swayamsevaks who would gather there for a three-day camp, where several celebrities and known personalities are expected to participate. As this being a large gathering of hindu organisation, it is likely to attract attention in that country.

This is RSS chief’s second UK visit since he took over the top position in Sangh. He has also been to other countries including like US and Mauritius.

RSS spokesperson Manmohan Vaidya told  Express that  Bhagwat was going to attend the camp of Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh, which completes its 50 years of formation.   Vaidya denied any knowledge of celebrity attendees saying it was being handled by the HSS units based there.

The Sangh’s global bodies are known by the name of Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS) and these are registered according to the local laws.

In England, HSS which started in 1966 has now over 100 shakhas across the country.  “We have ventured into diverse areas across the length and breadth of society including religious, cultural, social, educational, intellectual, student and legal fields. We have pioneered ‘Sewa’ both in spirit and organisation. These reflect some of the many dimensions we have contributed to,” HSS note said.

“The journey has had its fair share of challenges, yet we have flourished as we have continued to adapt and evolve with times. To mark 50 years of HSS UK, a 3-day gathering (MahaShibir) will  take place from Friday 29th to Sunday 31st July 2016,” HSS added.

Bhagwat has been asked to be chair it. RSS Joint General Secretary Dattatreya Hosabale will also be accompanying Bhagwat. Hosabale has been handling RSS’ global outreach trying to bring together hindu organisation in sync with the Sangh ideology.
