The RSS is expected to announce a change in its uniform on Sunday, switching from its trademark khaki shorts to trousers, the Times of India reported.
The official statement is likely to be made on Sunday, which is the final day of a three-day national meet of the Sangh in Nagaur.
The TOI report adds:
A proposal for changing the uniform has been in consideration for past one year and was eventually taken up for discussion in the Akhil Bharathiya Pratinidhi Sabha (ABPS), the highest decision making body of the RSS. Earlier, RSS' All India Prachar Pramukh Manmohan Vaidya also hinted at the possible change.
The Khaki shorts along with a black cap, white shirt, brown socks and bamboo stick have been the 'ganvesh' or the trademark uniform of the RSS. The renowned knee-length khaki shorts that the Sangh cadres have worn for generations will now make way for grey-coloured trousers.
An RSS leader who spoke to NDTV said that while the "switch to trousers is final, a discussion on colour may take place again", adding, "the implementation will take place later".
