Giving information about this meeting, Sunil Ambekar, national organising secretary of the RSS’s student wing ABVP, said, “In 2025, RSS will mark its 100th anniversary. A comprehensive expansion plan has been made for the centenary year celebrations of the Sangh. One lakh shakhas will be created across the country by 2024 so that Sangh work reaches the grassroots of all sections of the society.”
