Earlier Ramlal was sent back to the RSS and was appointed as Akhil Bhartiya Seh Samparak Pramukh in the RSS. According to sources, Ramlal had twice written to party chief Amit Shah requesting him to be relieved from his responsibility.
Ramlal’s tenure was marked by smooth coordination between the RSS and the BJP. He shunned publicity and his low-key style was in sharp contrast to the functioning of his predecessors like Joshi and K N Govindacharya.
