Bhagawat is likely to meet Assam chief minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Wednesday evening, and discuss some important political issues of the state.

The RSS chief will be in Guwahati till December 5, and after that he would visit Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh.

Bhagwat is likely to return to Guwahati on December 12, and would camp at Keshav Dham, the RSS office at Paltan Bazar in Guwahati.

During his stay at Keshav Dham, Mohan Bhagwat is likely to talk to a large number of RSS leaders who are working in Assam.

Mohan Bagwat’s visit to Assam assumes significance as the state is set to go for election in April next year, and the ruling BJP is all out to retain power.

His last visit to Guwahati was in January 2018, and had addressed a public rally — Luitporia Hindu Samavesh, and around 50,000 swayamsevaks had attended the programme.
