RSS shows Narendra Modi Lakshman Rekha


The Rashtriya Swayam sevak Sangh (RSS) has cautioned Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi that he is not bigger than the organisation and reports of his rift with senior leader L K Advani will only damage his likely chances of getting a prominent role at the national level, sources say.

Modi’s reluctance to involve BJP top brass while taking major decisions, has also not gone down well with the RSS.

The RSS, sources disclosed, has told the Gujarat chief minister that opposition or media should not get any chance to divert the issue from Advani’s Janchetna yatra when it reaches his state.

The BJP top brass is still unsure whether Advani will be received by Modi when the yatra reaches Gujarat or he will commission senior state leaders for the task. The yatra, beginning from October 11 is expected to reach Gujarat on November 6.

Sources disclosed the Sangh, which is in favour of Modi to be BJP’s prime ministerial candidate, is of the view that Modi is not giving importance to the organisation.

The RSS has conveyed its displeasure to the Gujarat chief minister and had told him that no one can challenge the authority of the organisation.

Even though Sangh parivar is in favour of bringing Modi at national level politics, a majority of RSS top brass is miffed with him for organising the Sadbhavna fast without consulting the sangh parivar.

The RSS is also unhappy with reports of Modi’s differences with Advani over the Janchetna, which resulted in the change of origin of this yatra from Gujarat to Bihar. They are also unhappy with him for not attending BJP’s recently concluded national executive meet.

Sources said one of the reasons why Modi did not attend the meet despite BJP chief’s insistence, was his anger over responsibilities given to his opponent amd RSS man Sanjay Joshi.

Some of the BJP leaders had complained to the RSS top brass that in Gujarat, even matters related to the organisation, needs to be first cleared by chief minister Modi.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
