All along RSS was sure of its trump move of ‘Varanasi for Modi’. Pastures were greener till Arvind Kejriwal pulled the sheet from Modi’s feet. The plan turned topsy turvy. New equations and new challenges are emerging, which are making RSS nervous and the entire brass of RSS is getting jittery. There was a general impression in BJP that L K Advani has been already hammered enough and he is no longer a threat for new hierarchies – a tamed political nonentity. But, as the adage goes, “Older the goose, harder to pluck.” The elder statesman of BJP refused to swallow the bat.
He seems to be snapping out of his forced slumber and ready to rise like a Phoenix. He is now telling BJP that he is still not yet finished. Now, he is disinclined to fight the election from Gandhinagar as he fears that Modi 'bhagats' would double cross and take him down. In the past, Advani was not often very kind to NaMo and NaMo kind of politics. Might be, L K Advani is repenting the day when he had saved Specter of NaMo from extinction; when Atal Bihari had reminded Modi of Rajdharam.
Today, agonized, insulted, isolated and cornered Bhishm Pitamah of BJP can’t writhe in pain. NaMo wants to put him in duress of Gandhinagar where an alleged or feared conspiracy is being hatched to politically finish the Octogenarian politician forever. Advani fears that a sure defeat would be heaped upon him if he fights from Gandhinagar. But as NaMo style demands - In BJP the last vestige of dissent against Narendra Modi is to be silenced. L K Advani might be forced to walk the plank. How pathetic to observe that all this is happening in the so-called party of Chal, Charitra and Chehra.
Interesting to remind,L K
Advani had been contesting and winning from Gandhinagar since 1991.
So, wait and watch. Keep your fingers crossed. Indian has enough of
dirt in politics.
