SENIOR RSS functionary Arun Kumar has been appointed as the new pointsperson between the BJP and its ideological fountainhead RSS. Kumar replaced RSS leader Krishna Gopal, who had been looking after the job since October 2014, months after the Narendra Modi government came to power.

The decision was taken during the Akhil Bharatiya Prat Pracharak Baithak – a meeting of all state leaders and top brass of the RSS – organised at Chitrakoot in MP between July 9 and 11.

Kumar, who had been handling publicity for the organisation nationally, was elevated as joint general secretary in the RSS in March when Dattatreya Hosabale replaced Suresh Bhaiyaji Joshi as the organisation’s general secretary.
