Indore: Attacking the BJP, its former general secretary and ideologue K N Govindacharya has described it as a party "suffering from internal conflicts and contradictions".

Govindacharya alleged that the Nitin Gadkari-led party lacks experience and has not done its homework properly on various issues including Ram Temple.

"The BJP is caught in the web of internal-conflicts and contradictions and now it is not possible for it to manage it," he told PTI.

"It appears there is a conflict going on within the party on the issue of liberalism and fanaticism and the same reflected during its meeting here from February 17-19," the senior leader said.

Referring to Gadkari's appeal to Muslims on the Ram Temple issue, he said the latter's views cannot be taken seriously. "It reflects that he has less experience, had not done his homework well and lacks coordination".

Advising Gadkari to "think well before commenting on any sensitive issue", the 66-year-old leader said politics is a field of fire where lack of knowledge is not pardonable.

He said Gadkari had taken over the reins of the party in a difficult situation.

Terming BJP as the 'Saffron Congress,' he charged that corporate culture is ruling the party where the place of leaders are taken by the managers and that of workers by the employees.
