A meeting of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh is going on at Deendayal Upadhyay Research Foundation, Chitrakoot. The secrecy of the meeting can be gauged from the fact that barricading has been done within a radius of about 3 km. Police of 5 districts Satna, Sidhi, Shahdol, Banda and Chitrakoot are stationed under guard. The people involved in the meeting, whether real or virtual, have been instructed not to mention anything inside out.
If sources are to be believed, work is going on to prepare a ‘master plan’ for the most important issues discussed in the country during the brainstorming. Brain storming continues within the Sangh on all three fronts, religion, culture and politics. Sangh officials are debating for hours on every issue.
4 questions before the union
1. There is also a debate in this direction whether the Sangh should try to show its face as secular.
2. Will the secular image be helpful in forming the BJP government in the country and in the states?
3. Will the traditional voter be comfortable with this new secular image of the Sangh?
4. If the third wave of Corona comes in the country, then how will the Sangh play the role of service?

After the debate on 5 issues, the constitution of the union will be made for the government
First: Unanimity on the central law against religious conversion
The meeting was unanimous about the need for a central law against religious conversion. According to sources, the Sangh will propose to the Modi government that a central law should be made against religious conversion. Those who do this should be punished severely. However, there is a dilemma on whether to make this law an election issue by registering it in the manifesto of 2024 or whether it should be counted among its achievements by passing it before the Lok Sabha elections?
Second: Laws to stop conversion and homecoming
Discussions have also taken place on the law to stop religious conversion. Also, what should be the punishment under the law. Also how strict or soft the mode of action should be. Sangh sources say that a large section of Muslims themselves want to return home. There is no need for any strictness for this. So one thing is certain that in the coming times, cases of Ganga flowing in reverse of religious conversion may also come to the fore.
Third: Population Control Law
The growing population of Muslims in the country is a major cause of concern for the Sangh. Discussions are also going on on this issue regarding the strategy to bring the central law at the earliest.
Fourth: Work on improving the image of Yogi
If sources are to be believed, the Sangh has almost decided the plan to win the upcoming assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh. In fact, it is also discussed that the same formula is being applied in the elections for the post of block chief. Tickets of many MLAs are set to be cut. The work of satisfying the wives or close relatives of many of these by giving them the tickets of the block chief has also been started. Therefore, from ticket allocation to improving Yogi’s image, the Sangh will work. Sangh workers will make it clear at the ground level that there is no difference of opinion between the central leadership and the Yogi government. To address the grievances of the public from the Yogi government, the tickets of the MLAs will be cut. The UP cabinet re-shuffle is also preparing to be done on a large scale on the lines of the Centre. The union can play a big role in this reshuffling as well.
Fifth: Corona’s third wave
The Sangh has also made preparations for the third wave of Corona. During this the Sangh will appear very active. A plan has been sought from the field campaigners and provincial campaigners regarding the third wave of Corona. He has also been asked why the Sangh workers were not seen on the ground in the second wave. Why was there no discussion of the Sangh regarding service work? Everyone has been instructed that the discussion of the Sangh in the third wave should be done for service works. People will be made aware by going from village to village. However, the plan is yet to be finalised.

Image dilemma, thoughts on unlocking branches
There is still a dilemma regarding the image of the Sangh. Apart from this, the issues of religious conversion and making laws against population are being discussed fiercely. After the ban on the branches in Corona, now the process of restarting them in a normal environment is also being discussed. Actually, in view of the elections of five states, the lockout of branches can prove to be harmful. Therefore, there was a discussion in the direction of making a chalky plan on how to start the branches with the corona protocol.
50-55 people attended the five-day meeting, 250 virtually joined
Kshetra Pracharaks and Prant Pracharaks participated in the All India Province Pracharak meeting of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.
