Nagpur, Dec 3: Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), the BJP's parent organisation, might soon witness a major organisational reshuffle. Hoping to strengthen organisation's young leadership the rightwing nationalist organisation is reportedly planning to replace old leaders with young ones.

Major RSS reshuffle on the cards?
It is being reported that the saffron outfit is planning to replace Sar Karyawahak Suresh Rao Joshi alias Bhaiyaji Joshi with Duttatrey Hosabale. Hosabale's elevation to the second most powerful position in the organisation is likely to be held in Akhil Bhartiya Pratinidhi Sabha scheduled in March next year.

Efforts in the Sangh to give a chance to young guns started in 2009 when the then Sar Sanghchalak (RSS chief) KS Sudarshan resigned from his post and appointed the then Sar Karyawahak Mohan Bhagwat as his successor. Likewise, Pratinidhi Sabha appointed Bhaiyaji Joshi to the post of Sar Karywahak while a senior Madan Das Devi was already occupying the post.

At the time of his elevation to the RSS chief's post Bhagwat was 3-years younger to Bhaiyaji Joshi. While Duttatrey Hosabale is comparatively younger to both the leaders. This clearly shows that the organisation wants to involve young guns in crucial matters as this move will bridge the organisation's gap with youth.

As per RSS sources, by handing over the organisation's reins in the hands of young leaders Sangh also wants to solve its problem of leadership crisis in future. As per Sangh's tradition its chief has the authority to appoint his successor. While other primary posts in the organisation are filled in a constitutional way. The Pratinidhi Sabha elects a Sar Karyawahak and 3 Sah Sar Karyawahaks for a period of three years. For this purpose, all regional representatives arrive at Nagpur for election.

Hosabale at present hold the post of Sah Sar Karyawahak in the BJP's parent organisation. Earlier in 2012 too, Hosabale's name was doing the rounds for appointing him to the post of Sar Karyawahak but Joshi was given an extension. Now, the rightwing organisation wants to replace Joshi with Hosabale. While Joshi will be given the responsibility to hold the post of Akhil Bhartiya Pracharak Pramukh.
