New Delhi: RSS has appointed V Bhaigaih as the fourth joint general secretary in its national team along with Dattatreya Hosabale, Krishna Gopal and Suresh Soni, who have been retained.
Bhaigaih (65), has been serving as the Akhil Bharatiya Bhauddik Pramukh of RSS for the last five years and was appointed yesterday at the valedictory of its three-day national Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS) meeting held at Nagpur.
The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) unanimously re- elected Suresh Bhaiyyaji Joshi as its General Secretary, the second-in-command of the influential right-wing outfit, for a third successive term.
Joshi, 67, known for his organisational skills and astute planning, was elected 'Sarkaryavah' for a fresh three-year term by the delegates attending the Akhil Bhartiya Pratinidhi Sabha, the apex policy and decision-making body of RSS.
Joshi retained his three joint general secretaries, besides Bhaigaih, to support him in running the organisation.
Bhaigaih will take over as the fourth joint general secretary after RSS announced in March last year the exit of its Sah Sarkaryavah (joint general secretary) K C Kannan (52) for personal and health reasons. Kannan had became one of the four Sah Sarkaryavahs in 2012.
