Why Kejriwal's attack on BJP is selective?
Kejriwal's attack and Gadkari's defence will now continue for some days. But one fall out of this exposure could be that the RSS may now think twice before giving a great signal for Gadkari's second term as the party president.

SO FINALLY Arvind Kejriwal has opened his mouth to damn BJP President Nitin Gadkari, alleging that rules were bent by the Maharashtra Government, particularly the scam-tainted former Irrigation Minister Alit Pawar to benefit the BJP Boss. 

One needs not go into the details of the charges made by him. But two things appear to be obvious. One, that Kejriwal, in order to please Anna Hazare, has implicated the Pawars with whom the Gandhian could never get along and secondly, he has only targeted a section of the BJP and not all even though in a vague and general way he has tried to say that both the Congress and the BJP are two sides of the same coin- the coin of corruption. 

To damn Pawar and Gadkari, he quotes Nitin Gadkari as saying: “How could you expect us to speak against Mr. Sharad Pawar? Chaar kaam wo hamare karte hain chaar kaam unke karte hain.” Won’t that sound music to the ears of Anna Hazare who detests Sharad Pawar so much that when the latter was slapped he had saidd, “Only one slap?”

Gadkari has denied the charges alleging that Kejriwal was attempting to snatch the BJP’s role of the main opposition and was trying to grab political space to benefit his party. Both Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley, who went on air, did defend their party chief but so halfhearted and unconvincing were their arguments that it seemed they were merely fulfilling the formality of saying a few words for him in support. 

The Congress took the opportunity to bash the BJP and demanded Gadkari’s resignation whereas Digvijaya Singh said what Kejriwal is saying today was something that the former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister had been saying all along - that Gadkari is less of a politician and more of an entrepreneur.

Kejriwal’s attack and Gadkari’s defence will now continue for some days. But one fall out of this exposure could be that the RSS may now think twice before giving a great signal for Gadkari’s second term as the party president. As if to snub and embarrass the anti-Gadkari lobby if not Nitin himself, Ram Jethmalani, the senior BJP leader, came cut with a diversion. 

He proposed the name of Narendra Modi for BJP’s prime ministerial candidate. This is something, which the trio – L K Advani, Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley- may not like because they are all in the race for the Prime Minister’s post. Gadkari maintained silence on this issue. How could he say anything when currently he is busy defending himself against the Kejri attacks? If Kejriwal is indeed taking sides in BJP’s internal politics, it is clear whom he is trying to spare.
