Singh is believed to have discussed the party strategy keeping in view of the last phase of polling on Monday and counting of votes on 16th May.

Asked whether any post-poll strategy was discussed in the meeting, sources said, “Sangh does not discuss strategy.”
Modi on Saturday joined Bhagwat, his deputy Joshi and Soni, at the Sangh headquarters where they are learnt to have reviewed the future course of action and current campaign strategy.
Sangh workers have campaigned extensively for BJP in eastern UP where the party seeks to dramatically improve its fortunes.
The meeting had also discussed the current political situation, the sources had said.
The last phase of Lok Sabha polling will be held on Monday, including in Varanasi, from where Modi is contesting. He is pitted against AAP’s Arvind Kejriwal and Congress’ Ajay Rai.
