NAGPUR (Agencies) — Industrialist Ratan Tata met RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat at the organisation’s headquarters here, Sangh sources said on Thursday.
The meeting, which RSS functionaries say was a courtesy visit, lasted two hours at the organisation”s headquarters.
The visit on Wednesday was Tata’s second visit to the RSS HQ, the last being on December 28, 2016.
Tata arrived in Nagpur on Tuesday and left the city on Wednesday after meeting the RSS chief, the sources said.
In August last year, Tata shared stage with Bhagwat at an event in Mumbai to mark the birth centenary of late RSS leader Nana Palkar.
Tata was the chief guest at the event.
The RSS chief then had praised the industrialist, saying, “Everyone was keen to hear Ratan Tata, but when I asked him he said he feels shy of speaking,” adding that “those who do work, they feel shy of speaking and their work always speaks for itself.”
The confidential meeting came at a time when general elections are underway in India. Several business leaders have been extending support to various political parties and organisations.
On Thursday, Congress leader Milind Deora tweeted a montage video in which Mukesh Ambani, the chairman of Reliance Industries, extended support to Deora in his fight against Shiv Sena’s Arvind Sawant for South Mumbai parliamentary constituency.
