A meeting between Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) veteran L.K. Advani was called off Wednesday after the party leader reported "unwell", said party sources.

Bhagwat, who played a key role in stopping a sulking L.K. Advani from quitting key BJP posts, was to meet Advani here.

However, the meeting was called off later, after Advani reported unwell.

Advani, who played a key role in building the BJP, last week resigned from all key posts after Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi was named head of the party's election campaign committee.

He took a u-turn after Bhagwat called and, according to sources, assured him that he will be consulted in all party decisions.

Bhagwat earlier met former BJP president Nitin Gadkari here.
