New Delhi/Patna: Even as Ram Jethmalani works to build consensus against Nitin Gadkari, his public challenge to the BJP president is being questioned from within the party.
Clearly standing with Gadkari, Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi on Tuesday questioned the very basis on which Ram Jethmalani and his son Mahesh Jethmalani have questioned Gadkari.
Modi dismissed their stand by asserting that both of them are leaders who came from outside.
Modi’s statement can also been seen in context of his apparent disapproval of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as BJP’s prime ministerial candidate in 2014, a cause which Jethmalani has been backing.
The core committee of the BJP is meeting at 5 pm today to discuss the entire issue.
