Coming soon: A swanky north Indian base for the RSS near Panipat

So far, RSS had to rent venues for its events in Delhi-NCR. Now, its state-of-the-art campus can even host the BJP meetings and seminars.  The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh has finally zeroed in on a piece of land that will become the base of its activities in north India. It wanted a gurukul-like village hamlet setting, where it would build state-of-the-art facilities to conduct various events around the year, and has found a 21-acre site near Samalkha village in Panipat, Haryana, that suits it just fine. The buildings on the site will be single-storey structures, and according to RSS sources, will feature a mix of modern urban and traditional rural aesthetics. According to the sources, the new centre won’t just be for RSS events – even the Bharatiya Janata Party can use it to hold meetings and seminars. #RSS is set to get a state-of-the-art base near Delhi, its first outside of Nagpur, reports @pragyakaushika https://t.co/5WVFB1WIRF pic.twitter.com/Uc5PiGki3R — ThePrint...
