 “In recent times, we have taken a different approach: we don’t tell the BJP what needs to be done, we tell them what should not be done,” says a senior Sangh functionary.

This is nothing but dishonest armchair journalism, as one has come to expect from Ms. Gahilote. I would not be surprised if Ms. Gahilote wrote this article after receiving inputs from a certain Digvijaya Singh, who is unusually "well-informed" about what goes on in the RSS/BJP.

Did she visit Nagpur and interview senior RSS functionaries? If she did, why is she keeping their identities anonymous? Throughout the article we are given fly-on-the-wall accounts of what transpired between Advani and Bhaiyyaji Joshi, between Suresh Soni and the BJP leadership and so on. She even ends with an anonymous "senior party leader" telling her that "the slugfest has just begun."

Why can't Outlook publish this as an editorial opinion instead of trying to pass off what is unadulterated speculation as an authentic news report?

Why are Outlook "journos" whining now that Gadkari has left? Not too long ago, they were complaining that Gadkari was still President despite being embroiled in the Purti group scam. Now that he's been booted out, what's their problem?

Case of damned if you do, damned if you don't?

(1) If one sentence is to be used to describe the exit of Shri Nitin Gadkari, it would be that Shri Gadkari deserved this unceremonious exit. (2) Despite all brave talk of friends of Shri Gadkari and RSS bosses, it was clear that if he had been reelected, the problems of BJP would have quadrupled. Good sense prevailed for whatever reason and the top brass of BJP decided to advise Shri Gadkari to resign. BJP has seriously erred by shielding Shri Gadkari in the matter of his investments in Purti Sugars Ltd. and other shell companies. BJP would still have to pay a heavy price for protecting its past President in coming weeks when more disclosures are made by the IT department. (3) As regards the relations between BJP and RSS, it is becoming increasingly difficult for RSS bosses to always effectively use their remote control because there are many State leaders in BJP who do not owe their present position to their links with RSS. In fact some of them have none. It would be in the interest of both BJP and RSS to give full freedom to the former to independently decide its future in coming years.

INC would be celebrating with an incompetent cretin at the helm of affairs of the largest opposition party. It does not mean that Gadkari was even close to being efficient or respectable but Rajnath singh is a failed politician. As the infighting brews in BJP, lets just hope that it implodes and fades away. Like all kinds of fascism blooms for sometime but it will eventually implode owing to its inherent foolishness.

Allegedly his overweening ambition did him in. Whoever allegedly tripped him had ample alleged covert support from ruling UPA : )
