L K Advani said he appreciates “anyone who can use cinema for patriotism”.
While both leaders said the meeting was just ‘a courtesy call’, sources in the AAP said issues relating to challenges faced in Delhi were discussed.
The former J&K chief minister also spoke about the growing fundamentalism in almost all religions.
Senior BJP leader L K Advani on Thursday said he was satisfied with how his party dealt with the recent controversies surrounding former IPL chief Lalit Modi and the Vyapam scam. “I am a party man and for that reason I am satisfied. From whatever I have come to know from TV reports, it is […]
Asked about the controversies surrounding Swaraj and Raje, however, Advani said: “I don’t have any information about them, so I have nothing to say. I can talk about myself.”
Advani had, in an interview to The Indian Express, said that he did not rule out a similar suspension of civil liberties in the future.
In such a scenario, when fundamental civil liberty stands threatened by extreme rightwing groups, the possibility of another Emergency cannot be ruled out.
While the BJP distanced itself from the cancellation saying Advani was free to meet whosoever he wants, sources said the BJP was obviously not happy with the meeting and many see the party’s hand in the cancellation.
When there are so few seats and so many candidates, the authorities conducting the AIPMT ought to weed out all possibilities of cheating.
Former Union Minister M Veerappa Moily said Advani should say what he left unsaid in the interests of the nation.
‘Advani ji doesn’t have any doubt regarding internal democracy in the BJP and its commitment to its ideology, Party general secretary P Muralidhar Rao said.
Advani is right. We need to talk about the Emergency. PS: Does Rahul have the courage to say sorry?
Civil society raised hopes only to disappoint…(it’s) the judiciary (that) is more responsible than the others, says BJP veteran L K Advani.
Ahead of the 40th anniversary of the imposition of the Emergency on June 25, L K Advani remembers it as the crime that has not yet been confessed to.
Advani has not been invited as he was not a Deendayal Upadhyay Janmabhoomi Smarak Samiti member.
