Bhagwat, in the last few days, has actively supported the Citizenship Amendment Act with the RSS doing a door-to-door campaign.
NEW DELHI: In a day-long programme on February 18, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat will have a closed-door meeting with writers, opinion-makers, and social media influencers to discuss various ‘national, social and cultural issues.’

Nearly 70 writers in different languages have been to the meeting, ET has learnt. According to the mail sent out by the organisation to writers, the meeting “has been arranged so as to facilitate interaction and exchange of ideas with senior writers, who have been disseminating their views on national issues through different media platforms.” The participants have been asked to arrive a night prior to the meeting, to avoid any delays.

Bhagwat will to deliver the keynote address, which will be followed by a free-flowing conversation, a Sangh member said. The meeting is part of the regular outreach the RSS chief organises to know the different points of view, writer Ratan Sharda said. On the need for a day-long session, he said it was to allow sufficient time to every participant to put forward his point of view.

“What we are looking at is a good exchange of views.” The proceedings will be strictly confidential and not open for coverage, the Sangh member said. It is expected that the RSS chief will cover a whole host of subjects at the event.

Bhagwat, in the last few days, has actively supported the Citizenship Amendment Act with the RSS doing a door-to-door campaign. The organisation has also called for awareness on population control and has cited concerns about changing demography, which is expected to be discussed in the meeting, apart from talks on protests across the country.

One of the writers said this was also an attempt by the RSS to build its pool of “supporters and sympathisers”.
