NAGPUR: The traditional khaki shorts worn by RSS swayamsevaks could soon be replaced by trousers and a decision in this regard is likely to be taken in a meeting starting March 11 in Rajasthan's Nagaur district.

"A change in uniform is very much on the agenda of Akhil Bhartiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS), the highest decision-making body of RSS, which is meeting in Nagaur from March 11," Manmohan Vaidya, All India Prachar Pramukh of the RSS, told PTI today.

The issue of change in uniform, which was taken up in a meeting of ABPS in 2010, was deferred till 2015 due to a lack of consensus, he said, adding "the apex body may take a decision on the same in the upcoming meeting."
