It has been reported in sections of the media that a meeting was held at the residence of Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh attended by BJP and RSS leaders to discuss about the forthcoming elections in Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland. Some of the media have also reported that the National Security Adviser Ajit Doval also attended the meeting. If correct, this is a shocking violation of norms and serious misconduct.

How can a senior government functionary like the NSA be present in a meeting to discuss the BJP’s election campaign?

The Union Home Minister must immediately clarify.
