Delhi BJP chief's remark on Advani creates flutter

New Delhi, Apr 6, 2013, (PTI) :

Delhi BJP chief Vijay Goel today created flutter with his remark that the next government at the Centre will be formed under L K Advani's leadership, a statement that comes amid growing clamour in the party for projecting Narendra Modi as its Prime Ministerial candidate.

"The next government at the Centre will be formed under the leadership of L K Advani and nobody else," he said addressing the party's Foundation Day in the presence of Advani and party president Rajnath Singh.

As television channels carried his statement and there was flutter in the party circles, Goel sought to play down his remark saying what he meant was that the next government will be formed under Advani's guidance.

He eulogised Vajpayee and Advani in his speech, saying they guided the party since its inception. While Vajpayee was unwell, he said, the party will seek Advani's guidance as it braces ahead for forming its government in the next general elections.
