New RSS team to decide fate of PDP-BJP alliance
Rupesh to replace Pappa as Prant Pracharak
3/9/2018 11:38:52 PM
Early Times Report
Jammu, Mar 9: As the three-day long Akhil Bhartiya Pratinidhi Sabha meeting of Rashtriya Swayam Sevak Sangh (RSS) began at Nagpur on Friday, replacement of Ramesh Pappa with Rupesh Kumar as the Prant Pracharak for Jammu and Kashmir is certain.
Even as it was not clear whether other office bearers of the RSS in Jammu and Kashmir will also be replaced with the formation of new team at national level, all eyes are set on the RSS reshuffle, which is likely to influence the ruling alliance in the State.
According to the sources, replacement of Ramesh Pappa - a local, with Rupesh Kumar as new RSS Prant Pracharak in Jammu Kashmir is likely to trigger new alignments in ruling BJP. Because of his close proximity with Deputy Chief Minister Dr NIrmal Singh, Minister for Health Bali Bhagat and others in BJP with ABVP background, Ramesh Pappa was allegedly biased in taking decisions and guiding the ruling party in Jammu and Kashmir, sources added. Rupesh Kumar, who is going to replace Ramesh Pappa, belongs to Haryana and has never served in Jammu Kashmir till his appointment as Sah-Prant Pracharak here last year. He is believed to have been close to RSS stalwart Arun Kumar.
With the change of Prant Pracharak, Arun Kumar is once again likely to play crucial role in deciding functioning of the BJP as alliance partner. Since he has some reservations with regard to BJP's role in J&K, sources said that RSS may review its stand with regard to the continuation of ruling alliance with PDP, sources added.
However, the picture would become clearer only after the constitution of new RSS team at national level in the Akhil Bhartiya Pratinidhi Sabha and hence all eyes are set on the three-day mega event at Nagpur.
