Dattatreya Hosabale was elected as the new 'Sarkaryawah' (General Secretary) of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) on Sunday.

Hosabale, who was born in Karnataka, served as the Sah-Sarakaryavah (Joint General Secretary) of the Sangh until now.

The election took place at the two-day annual meeting of the Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS), the Sangh's highest decision-making body that began here on Friday.

"Bangaluru: Akhil Bharatiya Pratinidhi Sabha of RSS elected Shri Dattatreya Hosabale as its Sarkaryavah. He was Sah Sarkaryavah of RSS since 2009," RSS tweeted.

Hosabale will replace the 73-year-old Suresh 'Bhaiyyaji' Joshi, who wasSarkaryawah for four terms, with each term having three years.

Though ABPS is an annual meet held at different places, but every third year it is held at RSS headquarters in Nagpur as election of Sarkaryawah will take place.

However, it was shifted to Bengaluru this time in the wake of surging COVID-19 cases in Maharashtra.
