Sushma delays BJP national conclave

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 07 June 2013 19:19 IST

Following L K Advani skipping today’s national conclave of the BJP in Goa, eyebrows have been raised over one and a half hours of delay in starting the officer bearers’ meeting due to Sushma Swaraj.

The meeting, which was to start at 3 pm, could not start till 4.30 pm, as Swaraj drove down to a star hotel instead of coming straight to the meeting venue from the air port.

“The media is unnecessarily reading too much in these two incidents”, said BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi later at a press conference today evening.

The national executive meeting is held at Marriott Resorts in Panaji city while Swaraj is staying at Taj Resort at Sinquerim, almost 10 kms away from the state capital.

The meeting of office bearers started only after Swaraj reached the venue while all other office bearers as well as the state presidents and organizing secretaries had reached the meeting venue well in advance.

Nobody could tell why Swaraj drove down to her hotel by delaying the office bearers’ meeting.

Highly placed sources disclosed to that Swaraj actually had a meeting with BJP chief Rajnath Singh and suggested him that the decision on Modi should be taken only afer taking Advani into confidence. 


“I am really surprised at such creations by the media”, said Trivedi, while denying any such meeting with his immediate boss.

BJP national president Rajnath Singh, on the other hand, claimed that Advani had stayed away from today’s meeting at his request as he is not well.

Advani is expected to reach Goa tomorrow by 12.30 pm while the national executive meeting would formally begin at 10.30 am.

Besides Advani, four other prime leaders – Jaswant Singh, Uma Bharati and Shatrughna Sinha have also preferred to stay away from the meeting.

Varun Gandhi however is in Paris and would not attend the meeting.

“We will come to know by tomorrow how many members would not be able to attend the meeting”, said Trivedi. is now on Telegram & also Youtube. Kindly subscribe for free & remain updated.

Sushma Swaraj has been the CM of Delhi and she is a fit leader for the post of PM.

She is a great orator among all the parliamentarians of today.

Sushma knows how important it is for all leaders of BJP to maintain unity in the party. She knows that if Advani is ignored, BJP would never come to power.

In a frenzy of Modi mania, it looks like some people want to devalue other tall leaders of BJP.

Leaders like Sushma, Jaitley are more experienced than Modi.
