The meeting between senior BJP leader L K Advani and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat was put off on Wednesday as the former was unwell. Sources said the meeting is likely on Thursday.
Advani had to cancel all engagements, including a public meet organised by BJP leader Uma Bharti on Ganga river issue, on Wednesday.
The RSS chief, who would be here for a few days, has already met former BJP president Nitin Gadkari and is likely to meet present chief Rajnath Singh soon.
As the news of postponement of the meet trickled in, there were speculations as to whether Advani was expressing his disagreement yet again, as he did by skipping the BJP national executive meet in Goa. Upset over the way Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi was elevated within the BJP, Advani had resigned from all party posts. He went back on his decision only after Bhagwat’s intervention.
Though unwell, Advani’s blog was active on Wednesday. In a mention to the 1919 Jallianwala Bagh massacre, he wrote that David Cameron was the first British Prime Minister to go the massacre site. “... (He) placed a wreath, recalled that in 1920 Winston Churchill, who was then War Secretary, had described the massacre as ‘monstrous’. The PM himself remarked that this massacre was ‘a deeply shameful event in British history’,” the blog said.
