Advani clarifies, says his blog "misunderstood"
The Bharatiya Janata Party patriarch Lal Krishna Advani has squirmed on his "non-Congress, non-BJP PM" remark in his Sunday blog "misunderstood" and wondered why he is often misunderstood instead of taking him in right context.
"It was a piece meant to highlight the drift in the UPA and the pathetic condition of the Congress," he told a group of BJP MPs who protested that his remark is demoralising for the party.
He told them that they should rather be excited "since any such government without Congress or BJP will not be stable and the BJP will be the ultimate beneficiary as the Congress is in poor shape."
The RSS leadership has, however, taken strong exception to his remark. RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, who arrived in Delhi on Tuesday, is understood to have conveyed to Advani that he should better speak out in the BJP meetings instead of blowing the hat in his blogs. Taking every issue to his heart to the public through the blogs does not help the party but causes unnecessary damage to the party, Advani was conveyed.
