"The problems faced by our villages can be solved by only those who live in villages. The RSS has been in close touch with rural India," said the Sarsanghchalak of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

"Thousands of our branches operate in villages. Our swayamsevaks have made laudable contribution towards rural development," said Bhagwat who arrived in north Bihar town on a five-day tour on Wednesday.

The RSS chief also stressed on the need for adopting organic farming, saying that it has been a part of our tradition for thousands of years. The RSS chief's tour of the state is scheduled to conclude on 15 February.

Opposition parties, the RJD and the Congress, have alleged that Bhagwat's visits have become frequent of late and it was a part of the agenda of the BJP to saffronize Bihar. They have also accused chief minister Nitish Kumar of having capitulated before the BJP, and taunted him over his 2016 resolve of making a RSS-free India when he had been heading an anti-BJP coalition government.

Deputy chief minister Sushil Kumar Modi said Bhagwat was meeting farmers with a view to helping them make their own lives better.
