Speaking to reporters, Gadkari said, "Atal Bihari Vajpayee and Advani have been the source of inspiration for me."
"I am new to Delhi and national politics. But after getting the blessings of the senior leaders, I am confident of performing the duties and responsibilities entrusted to me. After meeting Advani, my confidence has increased," the 52-year-old BJP chief said.
Gadkari met the party veteran along with his family members. Former BJP president M Venkaiah Naidu joined them during the breakfast meeting.
