According to sources, another RSS leader Shiv Prakash has also been deputed by the Sangh to work for the BJP now. Prakash was a regional 'pracharak' of RSS in Uttar Pradesh, a state where the BJP had put up a splendid show in the recent Lok Sabha elections.

The two RSS leaders are likely to find a prominent place in reorganized BJP that is also expected to see a new president as incumbent Rajnath Singh may relinquish his post after becoming the Union Home Minister.

Madhav, who is the in-charge of RSS media and public relations, has said that he is looking forward to a new role in the BJP.

The Sangh, which is the ideological mentor of BJP, had earlier also deputed many of its leaders including Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the party.

Sources say Ram Madhav is likely to be one of the new BJP general secretaries in the party. BJP general secretary Amit Shah is said to be leading the race for the party president’s post.

Madhav had earlier last month said that the RSS will not interfere in the functioning of BJP-led NDA government at the Centre.

“Sangh has not given any guidelines to the BJP nor to Modi after the party’s historic victory in the Lok Sabha polls. The RSS never keeps any remote control to perform any role in politics and government," Madhav had said.

Madhav’s association with the RSS goes back to his childhood days. He formally volunteered to be full-time worker for RSS in 1981 and has since then been assigned to several key positions in the organization.
