Nagpur: Former BJP national president Nitin Gadkari on Wednesday met RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat at the Sangh headquarters in Nagpur.

However, what transpired during the meeting, which lasted for over an hour, is not known. Riding a two-wheeler, Gadkari went to meet the RSS leadership in the afternoon and held discussions, sources said.

Gadkari, considered close to RSS which was said to have played a key role in his appointment as BJP president in 2009, is the fifth senior party leader who called on Bhagwat in the last two weeks.
