Mangaluru: Around 250 volunteers had attended the workshop organised by RSS. President of BJP, Amit Shah, who arrived in Mangalore on November 14, addressed the gathering from Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Maharastra.

The camp was organised for training the ‘pracharaks’, according to sources. Red Naxalism prevalent in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Maharastra was discussed briefly by Shah. The roles of pracharaks were defined as safeguarding tribal interests, countering the Naxal movements. He also spoke of evangelism in areas where extreme left wing presence was felt.

Amit Shah, along with Suresh ‘Bhaiyaji’ Joshi, the operational and executive head of RSS, held an in-camera talk, regarding the construction of Ram temple in Ayodhya. The conversation also included recent developments that took place in the country and on Sabarimala.

The camp is officially called as PracharakVarg and is held at the RSS office in Sanghanikethan, Mangaluru.
