The meeting ended on a positive note, say BJP patriarch’s backers

On his maiden visit to New Delhi on Tuesday after he was made head of the BJP’s election campaign committee, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi called on L.K. Advani in an effort to address the senior leader’s apprehension that the party has been hijacked by leaders with “personal agenda.” Mr. Advani revolted against the party a day after the anointment of Mr. Modi at the national executive committee meeting in Goa and castigated the leadership for mortgaging the party’s ideology at the altar of ambitions. The following day, the RSS forced him to climb down with an assurance that Rajnath Singh would talk to him to address his concerns.
