Other reasons not to go to Goa: Yashwant

PTI, PANAJI | 08 June 2013 14:43 IST

BJP leader Yashwant Sinha today said that he has chosen to stay away from the party’s national executive meeting in Goa not because of ‘NaMonia’, an oblique reference to aversion to Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.

“I don’t have ‘NaMonia’. I am in perfect health. But there could be other reasons for not going to Goa because of which I have not gone there,” Sinha told reporters.

‘NaMonia’ has emerged as a euphemism to refer to a group of BJP leaders, including senior party leaders L.K. Advani and Jaswant Singh, who have reported sick and skipped the party’s national executive meeting which began in Goa today.

Sinha had earlier supported Modi, who is being talked about being projected as the head of BJP campaign committee for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls.

The former Union Minister was also quoted as saying some days ago that Modi was unlikely to be appointed as in-charge of the BJP’s campaign for the general elections.

Earlier, commenting on the leadership issue Sinha had said that Advani was in a “different league’’.

Besides Advani, others who have skipped the Goa meeting include Uma Bharti, Yogi Adityanath and Shatrughan Sinha.
