RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has been in Gorakhpur, CM Yogi Adityanath's home turf, since Wednesday, when the former arrived here for a four-day Sangh event.

Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath arrived in Gorakhpur on Saturday but is yet to meet RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, who has been here since Wednesday for a four-day RSS volunteers' camp in the city.

Nagpur, Jun 10 (ANI): Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Chief Dr Mohan Bhagwat addresses the Valedictory Ceremony of Karyakarta Vikas Varg-2, at the National Level Cadre Training Camp in Nagpur on Monday.
Nagpur, Jun 10 (ANI): Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Chief Dr Mohan Bhagwat addresses the Valedictory Ceremony of Karyakarta Vikas Varg-2, at the National Level Cadre Training Camp in Nagpur on Monday.

While there was much speculation on a likely meeting between the two, Bhagwat remained at the camp venue, and Adityanath, who is on a three-day visit to his bastion, spent time at a local zoo.

The Uttar Pradesh chief minister and BJP leader released an Asiatic lion, 'Bharat', and the lioness 'Gauri' into their enclosure at the Shaheed Ashfaq Ullah Khan Prani Udyan, and held a meeting with officials.

“There was no announcement of any scheduled meeting,” Sangh sources told news agency PTI.

In the recent Lok Sabha polls, the saffron party won just 33 of the 80 seats in the country's most populous state, down from 71 in 2014 and 62 in 2019. The Samajwadi Party-Congress combine bagged 43 seats, of which 37 went to the SP and six to the grand old party.

The BJP, which governs Uttar Pradesh and formed its third successive government at the Centre after the national polls, was expected to put up a good show in the state in the wake of the January 22 opening of the Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. However, the JP Nadda-led outfit also lost the Faizabad seat, which covers Ayodhya; its two-term MP, Lallu Singh, was defeated by Awadhesh Prasad of the SP.

Also, unlike its previous two terms, when it enjoyed an individual majority, the BJP, which won 240 seats in the 543-member Lok Sabha – the Congress came second with 99 – required support from its allies in the NDA, the coalition it leads, to form government. On June 9, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was sworn-in for his third consecutive term.

The Sangh is the ideological mentor of the BJP.
