New Delhi: The Nitish Kumar led Bihar government has directed the district police officers to collect information on the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) and its functionaries, along with 18 other organisations associated with it.  The task has been assigned to the Special Branch of the Bihar police.

The letter by the intelligence wing of the Special Branch of Bihar Police to all the district branches carries order to collect details about the RSS and its affiliates, regarding its state level portfolio holders.


Besides RSS, the 18 outfits that have been named in the letter include Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Bajrang Dal, Hindu Jagaran Samiti, ABVP, Akhil Bharatiya Shikshak Mahasangh, Hindu Mahasabha and others.

The details like names, contact details including phone numbers and address and also business associations of all the office-bearers of the RSS and its associate outfits have been sought within a week’s period.

As per sources, the BJP has expressed its displeasure over the order. They also revealed that the task has been instructed to be carried out with confidentiality.

The letter was dated 28th May 2019, five days post the Lok Sabha elections results, in which the BJP-led NDA returned to power with a thumping majority.



Though, not much has been elaborated inside it, the timing of the letter has raised many eyebrows.
