New Delhi: The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh or RSS has expressed its displeasure at BJP leaders describing Prime Minister Narendra Modi as "God's gift to India", sources have said.
After a recent meeting of its Pratinidhi Sabha at Rajasthan's Nagaur, the RSS leaders on Tuesday held discussions with the top BJP leaders. The meeting was convened to convey the outcomes of the meet to the BJP, said informed sources.
The ideological mentor of the BJP told party leaders including chief Amit Shah to go ahead with the issue of "nationalism" but also add development to the plank.
Sources said that the RSS leaders expressed displeasure over the remarks made by union minister M Venkaiah Naidu describing Modi as "God's gift" to the nation, and suggested the BJP leadership not encourage "individual worship" as "organisation" is supreme.
Mr Naidu, while presenting political resolution on the last day of the national executive meeting on Sunday, dubbed PM Modi "god's gift to India" and a "messiah of the poor" and said India is recognised and respected everywhere because of him.
The JNU row and the Rohit Vemula suicide case also figured in the meeting, the sources said.
