After tasting success in the first south Indian state of Karnataka, the RSS and its affiliated organisations have turned their focus to other southern states like Kerala and Tamil Nadu. 

Despite having large number of shakhas, the saffron brigade is yet to make political impact in Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
Taking a step in this direction, Viswa Hindu Parishad (VHP) held its 3-day national meet at Kochi last month.

“It was a three day mega programme and the workers in the state get boosted after the event,” said, R.V.Babu, the state secretary of Hindu Ikya Vedi, an umbrella forum of 40 Hindu organisations.

Babu further added, “This is the right time to work hard to make a breakthrough in the state. Though, the political climate is always in favour of Hindutva forces in the state, saffron organisations have failed to cash it. But through a concerted effort, the long pending ambition will come true. And these efforts will give a positive result.”

Following VHP, RSS has also planned to organise Akhila Bharathiya Prathinithi Sabha (ABPS), the annual conference, in October this year.

According to S Sethumathavan, the south zone organiser of RSS, the ABPS will be held at Kochi and the preparation for the mega meet is in full swing.

The ABPS is a mega conference of more than 16,000 senior workers from across the country and abroad. According to RSS, the sketch and plan for the propose meet are ready and work on the same will commence soon.
