New Delhi, Aug 25 (ANI): Reacting to senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Arun Shourie's statement that the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) should take over the BJP, its spokesperson Ram Madhav on Tuesday said the RSS would only advise the BJP whenever it asks for and managing the affairs of the party is primarily the responsibility of the BJP.
"I want to make it very clear that this is not Sangh's responsibility. Our workers are there in politics and they will do what they think is necessary. Whatever help or advice they need from the Sangh, the Sangh will try its best to provide them but it's the BJP responsibility to manage the task," said Madhav.
Shourie had on Monday asked the RSS to take over the control of the BJP.
Shourie's statement is believed to have further deepened the crisis in the party, which is already reeling under a crisis sparked off by the expulsion of Jaswant Singh from the BJP for his views published in his book on Jinnah. (ANI)
