The Assam unit of the RSS includes some districts of Assam, the entire Nagaland and Meghalaya. The conclave assumes significance as three northeastern states — Nagaland, Meghalaya and Tripura — are going to polls next month and the BJP has been trying to make its presence felt in all the three poll-bound states.

Bhagwat also urged swayamsevaks to learn more about the Sangh culture, "The RSS's strength is not in showing its strength or to scare anyone but it is for strengthening society for the betterment of everyone. Don't just remain a spectator, a sympathiser; learn to come down and learn the Sangh culture. Mothers and sisters need to send their sons to RSS shakhas and teach them our vision." Rishiraj Bhagwati
