On 85th Birthday, Advani denies being in PM’s Race


TNI Bureau: Veteran BJP leader LK Advani had a lot of surprises on his 85th birthday today. BJP President Nitin Gadkari has visited him at his residence. Apart from this, Russian ambassador Alexander Kadakin stole the thunder by touching the feet of the Octogenerian.

Advani sought to clear the air, saying he has no Prime Ministerial ambitions, saying, “The party and the country have given me so much, it is much more than becoming the prime minister.”

It is a known fact that Advani is unhappy with the continuance of Nitin Gadkari as the party President in the wake of serious graft charges against him. He did not buy the argument put forth by the BJP that Gadkari had done no “legal or moral” wrong and even skipped the BJP Core Group meeting that gave clean chit to the BJP President.

    Dear editor,Another well wtitren article and made for enjoyable reading like your other editorials the articles on this website stimulate ideas and thought whether one agrees completely or not with the content ( depending on what ones personal political leanings are)I dont actively concern myself in Indian ( or global ) politics however , it has always seemed to be that some or several members of the Nehru dynasty have joined the political arena very reluctantly with misgivings and through pressure from the party ? They may start liking the power and all that comes with it at some point but a sense of obligation seems to be what has pulled in people like sonia , rajiv , and even indira ( her biography makes for fascinating reading) ? The underlying issue here is that indian politics hasnt been able to attract real talent from todays generation of indians there is a paucity and how it has been filled is a resultant problem but not the problem itself. i guess india and its leaders first have to figure a way to make India an attractive enough place for all Indians to want to stay in before they tacke the issue of attracting more merit to government careers.
