People fall ill when season changes: Jawadekar

GOANEWS DESK, PANAJI | 08 June 2013 15:11 IST

While pro-Narendra Modi workers protested outside BJP veteran L K Advani’s house in Delhi, BJP in Goa said people fall ill when season changes.

BJP spokesperson Prakash Jawadekar however assured here today that no decision on campaign chief will be taken without Advani’s assent.

Advani skipped the ongoing crucial national executive meeting in Goa even on the second day and the BJP has been now saying he may come on Sunday, the last day of the three-day BJP conclave.

BJP national president Rajnath Singh, in his inaugural address, assured that all the party workers would go to their respective states with new energy, confidence and enthusiasm.

When asked what this ‘new’ would be, he said: “wait till tomorrow and see.”

He indicated that the decision making Modi the campaign chief would be taken tomorrow.

While the BJP workers chanted pro-Modi slogans outside Advani’s house in Delhi, Jawadekar kept on denying in Goa that the party is divided over Modi’s campaign chief issue.

“Don’t be Gobel and start believing in your own imaginary stories”, said Jawadekar while dismissing all stories that several key leaders of the BJP have skipped the national executive due to their differences of opinion on the issue of projecting Modi as the prime ministerial candidate.


When asked regarding the absence of leaders like Advani, Yashwant Sinha, Jaswant Singh, Uma Bharati and Shatrughna Sinha, Jawadekar quipped: “all of them are Modi supporters.”

He also recalled the media speculations about the rift between in Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Advani when, he claimed, they always supported each other.

“Advani has been advised by the doctor to take rest for three to four days and Rajnath Singh has thus advised him not to come to Goa”, said Jawadekar.

It is perhaps for the first time in the history of BJP that 85-yeare old Advani has skipped the national executive meeting.

While the national executive is expected to take a decision on Modi’s elevation in the party by tomorrow, he assured that the decision would definitely have Advani’s blessing.

The pro-Modi mood is however upbeat in Goa and even the billboards from Dabolim air port to the meeting venue of Panaji – a distance of around 35 kms – have more than double photos of Modi, compared to Advani and even Rajnath Singh. is now on Telegram & also Youtube.
