Speaking on the last day of the two-day long BJP National Council Meet in Kozhikode, Kerala, Shah referred to Upadhyaya — an RSS member and former President of Jan Sangha — as “an alternative thinker, who, when everyone was busy with communism, capitalism, came up with an ideology of ‘humanism'”.

He thanked and praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi too, who was present at the meet.

Upadhyaya, a politician, philosopher, economist, sociologist, historian, journalist was born on September 25, 1916 in Uttar Pradesh. He served as the Bharatiya Jana Sangh president from 1967 until his death in 1968.
