Pune, Nov. 14 (ANI): Continuing his sharp critique of the current stasis in the BJP, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat has described the party "as a divided house."

"BJP is a divided house and a divided house can't function properly. The party should not forget its roots," Bhagwat told reporters in Pune.

He added that he had told the BJP leadership to look for a "young" candidate who can "restore its organisational set-up".

"We have told them (BJP) to restore and tighten the party's organisational system and structure and choose a young president having leadership mindset," he said.

Answering whether the RSS favoured Nitin Gadkari from Maharashtra as the new BJP President, Bhagwat only revealed that there were three to four names that were being discussed.

"We have conveyed our expectations of the new leader and if they (BJP leaders) approach us after taking a decision we will okay it," he added.

Answering a question, Bhagwat said RSS had never set a deadline for leader of the opposition L K Advani to step down by February. (ANI)
