It was reported that the RSS was not too keen on Advani's decision on the yatra since the BJP leader did not consult them before making the announcement. With Advani increasingly been projected as BJP's projected Prime Minister, the RSS wants to make its stand clear ahead of the 2014 general elections. The RSS has expressed their stand and has sought from Advani to announce in his yatra that he is not the PM candidate in the 2014 elections, sources revealed.
The RSS is reportedly not happy with the turn of events and the fact that Advani is in the limelight once again. The talks of succession debate within the party has also not gone down well with the RSS. The RSS wants to project a young face as the PM and hopes that the present senior leaders would make way for Generation Next for the top job.
Sources have revealed that Advani is expected to make the announcement that he was not in the race for the Prime Ministerial post and that his focus was on fighting corruption. Only then the RSS will extend its support to Advani and his yatra. The BJP cadre will also be given the go ahead to lend their support to the cause.
There has been spirited talks within the party supporting Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as the BJP's choice of PM. His recent Sadbhavana fast had elicited widespread support from those within the party and outside with Advani, Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley praising his good governance and administrative prowess.
