Prof. Rajendra Singh (29 January 1922 – 14 July 2003), popularly known as Rajju Bhaiya, was the fourth Sarsanghchalak of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) between 1994 and 2000. He worked as a professor and head of the Department of Physics at Allahabad University but resigned to devote his life to the RSS in the mid-1960s.
Like his predecessors he was a firm believer in the concept of swadeshi and empowering rural economy. Initiating the rural developmental activities, he had declared in 1995 that the utmost priority should be given in making the villages hunger-free, disease-free and educative.
Today, there are over 100 villages where the rural development work done by swayamsevaks has inspired the people of surrounding villages and their experiments are being emulated by those people. He died on 14 July 2003 at Kaushik Ashram in Pune, Maharashtra.
