Those at the top must listen to the elder members of the BJP, who have warned against the party coming under the control of one or two leaders. The BJP has always prided itself on being a “party with a difference” and has often taken potshots at the Congress for having become the family concern of the Gandhis. […]
Anupam Kher thanked BJP veteran L.K. Advani for his “generosity” to come and witness the play ‘Mera woh Matlab Nahi Tha’.
Advani had decided not to celebrate his birthday this year and had asked loyal followers like Harin Pathak in Gujarat not to fly down to Delhi for a party.
BJP seniors have broken the silence, after Bihar. Party establishment needs to engage with their concerns.
BJP patriarch L K Advani was born on November 8, 1927 in Karachi in Pakistan.
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.
