New Delhi: BJP Government had clearly conveyed it to RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat to check the conversion row being hyped by the RSS. Top leaders of the party have also chosen to keep away from the issue as it could put the government in a fix.

Bhagwat endorsed the ‘Ghar Wapsi' campaign last week in a speech in Kolkata. “The Sarsanghchalak knows that the Narendra Modi government has to perform for the Sangh agenda to succeed,” said a BJP leader requesting not to be named in an interview to Economic Times.

According to him, “Ghar Wapsi move is nothing new and cannot stop. It is just that it is more in focus because BJP is in power. The effort is now to ensure that it doesn't reflect negatively on the Modi government and its development agenda, “he added.

RSS chief is in Delhi for few days and will not stop at the RSS Headquarters in Keshav Kunj but will rather stay put at a meditation center in Chhatarpur.

The prominent leaders of the party will stay away from the Sarsanghchalak. The RSS chief will be dealt by the middle leaders like JP Nadda, Dr. Harsh Vardhan and Meenakshi Lekhi. According to media sources, RSS functionaries Bhaiyaji Joshi, Ram Lal and Dr. Krishna Gopal met Bhagwat on Friday to discuss and sort out the issue around conversion.

“He usually comes for a day or two, and prefers to return to Nagpur after that. This time, he wants to iron out the problems, and the perception of a rift between the government and the RSS,” another BJP leader said.

Bhagwat was briefed about the ‘samanvaya' (coordination) meeting between BJP and Sangh leaders at Union minister Nitin Gadkari's official residence on December 22. Sushma Swaraj, Arun Jaitley, Rajnath Singh, Venkaiah Naidu and party president Amit Shah, among others, had met Sangh leaders Krishna Gopal and Bhaiyyaji Joshi to discuss the gridlock in Rajya Sabha that prevented the government from passing some crucial bills like that of insurance.

RSS spokesperson Manmohan Vaidya confirmed the RSS chief was camping in Delhi as a routine. As per him, RSS had its organizational meeting on Friday with representatives of five states and a similar meeting is expected today with representatives of five more states.
