The decision was taken at the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh's 'Prantha Pracharak Baithak' which concluded on Saturday in Vijaywada, Sangh's publicity in-charge Arun Kumar said.

The post of general secretary (organisation) in the BJP is always held by a Sangh functionary for better coordination between the two organisations.

Kumar said it is a routine practice to transfer Sangh full-timers. 

Sources said V. Satish is likely to replace Ramlal in the BJP.
