A day after RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat said, "As far as BJP is concerned, whatever surgery, medicine, chemotherapy is essential for them, it has to be diagnosed by them," he clarified that he had never meant the party needed chemotherapy. "I did not say chemotherapy is needed (by BJP) but you know what happens in the media. Now I do not even want to clarify..."
Post-Script: Whether he does or not, the fact remained that as the year grinds to a close, the domination of the BJP organisation by the Sangh seems complete with Nitin Gadkari's appointment as the party president. But the Advani camp has not given up, as far as the legislative party is concerned, by managing to wrest the position of Chairman for Mr Advani and his hand-picked Arun Jaitley and Sushma Swaraj being appointed as leaders of opposition in Rajya and Lok Sabha respectively.
