Ahmedabad: There are speculations that all is not well between Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and top brass leaders of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). The RSS decision of not inviting Modi in its meeting held at Kayavarohan in Vadodara from September 7-9 strengthens this speculation.
The crucial meeting, which was attended by around 60 senior RSS leaders, discussed several issues, including the 2014 Lok Sabha polls. The meeting is convened only once in two to three years.
RSS leaders, including Mohan Bhagwat and others, spent two days at Kayavarohan, but no meeting was held between Modi and them.
RSS Gujarat media head Pradeep Jain said, "This was totally a RSS function for which only the top leadership of the organisation was invited. Nobody else was invited."
Modi was interested to meet the RSS top brass, but he was invited. "There was a request for a meeting from the side of chief minister but it was politely denied," media reports have quoted RSS sources as saying.
Recently, Modi is increasingly facing heat from Sangh Parivar outfits. The VHP had issued statements criticising Modi government for its handling of the 2002 riots cases.
RSS is reportedly unhappy with Modi as he had tried to stall the parent organisation's effort to strike a compromise between him and former Chief Minister Keshubhai Patel.
