NEW DELHI: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat is scheduled to undertake his first visit to Jammu and Kashmir post the abrogation of articles 370 and 35 A.
Bhagwat, during his three-day visit to the Union Territory from October 1 to October 3, will interact with 'prabudh varg' members, informed sources.
Apart from meeting intellectuals in the Union Territory, the RSS Sarsanghchalak has a packed schedule as this visit comes after a gap of more than two years. Meeting intellectuals in Jammu is the only public programme, Bhagwat will attend, sources added.
Sources in the Sangh said that RSS Sarsanghchalak who usually visit every "Prant" once in two years has lesser visits over the past two years due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Touted as his first visit to the Union Territory post abrogation of articles 370 and 35 A, sources said Bhagwat could not visit earlier due to the ongoing pandemic situation.
The onslaught of the COVID-19 pandemic necessitated the restriction of physical movement and gathering.
