The party's patriarch has expressed his support to L K Advani through the written appeal of pamphlets. He asked the people to choose among the three roads of UPA that neglected the development and security, second road where the parties want to 'stitch up' alliances for power and the BJP-led NDA government.
He praised his long time friend saying, "In all these years, my dream and that of my colleagues was to make India a strong, prosperous nation... There were many who joined me on the way but the closest and most talented comrade through my journey was Advaniji... Having working together, I have been in awe of his wisdom, clarity of thought and his skill to carry people along... He has played a great role in taking BJP to its present heights... His unblemished character and firm commitment and personality...is what the nation needs today."
