“Ab Ki Baar, Modi Sarkar” may have become tagline for most of the candidates and the BJP publicity campaign. But not for former deputy prime minister and Gandhinagar candidate Lal Krishna Advani.
The party patriarch, who had opposed elevation of Chief Minister Narendra Modi as BJP prime ministerial candidate, will start campaigning for Gandhinagar, which he has reluctantly accepted, from April 5.
But posters for him have come up in Gandhinagar areas with slogans “Vote for India” and Sauno Saath, Sauno Vikas (development for everyone, with everyone). When heavyweights like Revenue Minister Anandi Patel and party general secretary Amit Shah campaigned for Advani, their slogans centred around “Ab Ki Baar, Modi Sarkar”, but not Advani.
