Advani, Rajnath will decide role in BJP: RSS chief

August 31, 2009 11:20 IST
Virtually giving credence to reports that top Bharatiya Janata Party leaders L K Advani and Rajnath Singh may have to give up their posts, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangha chief Mohan Bhagwat on Monday said they will decide on their role within the party.

"Rajnathji, Advaniji and others will decide on their role (in the party). Everything will be fine in the BJP in future," he told mediapersons in Haridwar.

"There are people with moral standing like Advani and under their guidance, they will solve all problems. We have nothing to do with this. What we had to say we have said," he said.

While the BJP had said on Sunday that Rajnath Singh will not get an extension as party president beyond his three year term that ends in December, there were reports that Advani may step down as Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha but the timing for it has been left to him.

Bhagwat arrived in Haridwar after wrapping up discussions with the party top brass on its future course. He had a breakfast meeting with Advani on Saturday and had discussions with other senior leaders.

The RSS on Sunday obtained a commitment from BJP's warring leaders that they will stop their infighting after it made a major intervention to get BJP to put its house in order.
