Have requested Advani ji to take back his resignation: Narendra Modi
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: In an effort to placate LK Advani, who resigned from all party posts on Monday, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi called the senior BJP leader and asked him to reconsider his decision.
Modi revealed the same on Twitter – “Had a detailed conversation with Advani ji on phone. I urged him to change his decision.”
He further tweeted – “I hope he will not disappoint lakhs of party workers.
Modi also said, "Spoke to Rajnath ji. In such a short time cannot reach the parliamentary board meeting but will stand by whatever decision the board takes".
This was the first reaction by the Gujarat Chief Minister after the party was sent in a tizzy today by the resignation of Advani.
In a letter written to BJP president Rajnath Singh, Advani said he is resigning from the national executive, parliamentary board and election committee.
Advani, who did not attend the party’s three-day conclave in Goa, wrote in the letter that the direction in which the party is going is not the way it was planned by the party`s founders.
“For some time I have been finding it difficult to reconcile either with the current functioning of the party, or the direction in which it is going. I no longer have the feeling that this is the same idealistic party created by Dr Mookerji, Deen Dayalji, Nanaji and Vajpayeeji whose sole concern was the country, and its people,” Advani wrote.
Advani further wrote that he finds it difficult to work with people who are concerned only with personal agenda.
