He also set up an intelligence and security organisation in Ghana.
Rameshwar Nath Kao also played an important part when Indira Gandhi declared emergency and a chaos situation overtook the whole country by storm and when all this was being played, it was Kao who privately advised Indira Gandhi to do not declare emergency and when after the emergency, came the government of Morarji Desai, Rameshwar Nath Kao resigned and came back after Indira Gandhi returned and worked as a security advisor.
When Punjab was dealing with terrorism and had crossed all limits, kao set up the National Security Guard (NSG) to counter terrorism within the country and then came the establishment of RAW which started under Indira Gandhi and she hand-picked kao to head RAW and its operations started with other agents too and the basic purpose of creating RAW was intelligence bureau as India couldn’t afford to rely on that anymore and hence RAW came in power to fill the gap in intelligence collection and execution of covert operation overseas and this started the spy agency of R N Kao under whom worked many boys known as Kaoboys. It was Kao and his team efforts that Sikkim became part of India.
