Ahead of the crucial three- day Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha meeting of the RSS, scheduled to begin from March 13 in Nagpur, BJP president Amit Shah met Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat and other key leaders in Nagpur on Friday.

Among the many things discussed at the seven-hour-long meeting, was the RSS’s main grouse — the "autocratic" style of functioning of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The RSS said it was also unhappy with the contentious land acquisition bill.

While some of Modi’s cabinet colleagues suggested modifications to pacify detractors, the PM is unwilling to budge.

The party’s alliance partners too have expressed anguish at the proposed land bill and want to corner the RSS on this.

Bhagwat reportedly told Shah that while amending the present land acquisition law, the government should try to overcome its "pro-corporate" image and ensure the interests of farmers.

While the new working committee will be elected at the Pratinidhi Sabha meeting, major issues such as the land acquisition bill, the JK scenario and the defeat of the BJP in Delhi may also be discussed, sources said.
