Leading industrialist and founding Chairman of Wipro Limited Azim Premji on Sunday, 6 October, paid tribute to MS Golwalkar, the second sarsanghchalak of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).

The chief of RSS is called sarsanghchalak and Golwalkar held the post for 33 years, from 1940 until his death in 1973.

Premji paid tribute at Golwalkar's samadhi at the RSS headquarters in Nagpur.

Earlier in 2015, Premji had attended an RSS event organised by the Rashtriya Sewa Bharati a body affiliated to the Sangh.

Speaking at the event, Premji said that he was invited by the present RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat but made it clear his presence at the event should not be seen as an endorsement of the Sangh.

Merely speaking at a forum does not in any way mean that one endorses all or any of the views that are expressed in that forum, the industrialist said, addressing a session where Bhagwat was present.
