Nagpur: Gujarat Chief
Minister Narendra Modi Sunday met the top brass of the Rashtriya
Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), including Sarsanghachalak Mohan Bhagwat,
ahead of the assembly elections in Gujarat this December.
"Today, after many days, I had decided to meet Bhagwatji, along
with Bhaiyaji Joshi and Surajji Soni. In my meeting with them that
lasted over three hours, we spoke about diverse subjects," Modi
told media persons after the meeting here.
"The conversation was a pleasure. I am also a swayamsevak and this
is a place of faith for the Sangh. It is obvious that we will talk
our hearts out," he added.
Modi, however, denied of having any political talks with the RSS
Last week, lawyer and Bharatiya Janata Party's (BJP) Rajya Sabha
member Ram Jethmalani strongly pitched for Modi as the party's
prime ministerial candidate for 2014 parliamentary elections.
When asked if his meeting with Bhagwat was to garner RSS support
for the 2014 general elections, Modi said he does not know if
there is such a candidacy in our country.
When asked about the RSS's take on it, Modi said: "The RSS will
never get entangled into any such thing. It is neither their
subject, nor a matter of their interest."
Modi is campaigning for the Gujarat assembly elections to seek a
third consecutive term as the chief minister.
