There is speculation that the election to the top executive post of RSS, the Sarkaryavah (General Secretary), will also take place during the two-day meeting. The election is conducted once in three years. 

Suresh ‘Bhaiyyaji’ Joshi was elected Sarkaryavah in 2018 and the three-year term ends this year. The Sarkaryavah is the only elected post in the RSS. Normally, 1,400 representatives across the country elect or endorse the candidate for general secretary.

However, this year, due to pandemic, the number of delegates will be restricted to 500. The meeting will also discuss various social issues like education and health apart from organisational policies.
