About 1.50 lakh RSS workers are expected to attend the gathering which would be held across 450 acres near Hinjewadi IT Park on the outskirts of Pune.
    
Workers from western Maharashtra districts of Pune, Nashik, Ahmednagar, Satara, Sangli, Solapur and Kolhapur have registered themselves for the gathering to be addressed by RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat.
    
Coordinator of the event Sarang Wable said it would be the biggest conclave of the RSS workers in the recent past. He said the main purpose of the gathering was to reach out to civil societies and social service organisations in the country.
    
"The purpose of the meet is to project Sangh as a positive force in the society, and to further open up to the wider audience. The main thing we want to highlight is the ideals of discipline practised among the followers of Sangh. We felt there is a need to showcase the core aspects of the Sangh to important people in the society", Wable said.

Pune RSS chief Bapu Ghatpande said the meet will be completely eco-friendly. Noted art designer Nitin Desai has set up a nine-storey replica of Raigad Fort from where Bhagwat will address the gathering.
