RSS trains guns on LK; holds him responsible for LS defeat
New Delhi: After sending out a stern message
to crisis-ridden BJP to put its house in order, RSS has
trained its guns on senior leader L K Advani, holding him
responsible for the party`s debacle in the Lok Sabha
The RSS, which has been building pressure on BJP to end
its internal bickerings and is favouring younger leadership,
feels it was a blunder to project Advani as BJP`s prime
ministerial candidate and making the party`s poll campaign
In the latest issue of Sangh mouthpiece `Panchajanya`,
the RSS said in an article that Congress cashed in on the
blunder made by BJP by playing up Advani`s age and projecting
its campaign on lines of "old versus young."
In his article, senior RSS leader and ideologue Devendra
Swaroop has said the Congress had used Manmohan Singh against
Advani "as Shikhandi was used against Bhismapitahmah in
He said the manner in which he got his autobiography
translated in different languages and launched with great
fanfare, it seemed that he was portraying himself as one
sculpting the destiny of Indian politics.
"But, they (BJP leaders) had forgotten that all this will
boomerang and the RSS cadre would not be able to forget his
pro-Jinnah image," he said.
