Swant Ranjan urged the officials to start preparing for the gurudakshina programmes of the Sangh starting from September. The whole year will have to focus on the expansion of the Sangh Parivar.” He highlighted the need for special efforts to expand the Sangh’s branches and increase the number of pracharaks.

“A lot of work is still needed to make a strong foothold among the Dalits and backward classes while increasing social harmony,” Ranjan said.

Suggestions were also solicited from regional officials during the meeting. Attendees on the first day included regional officials from the Sangh’s eastern region’s Awadh, Kashi, Gorakhpur, and Kanpur provinces.
