The posters also quoted lines from a poem written by senior BJP leader and former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. The poster also had a symbol of the BJP. It is, however, not clear on who put the posters there.
"I have not asked anyone to put these posters. I do not know who is behind all this," said Sanjay Joshi. Modi was apparently upset with BJP Party President Nitin Gadkari for reinstating Joshi in the party and handling him the charge of Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections.
Joshi had quit in 2005 following his involvement in a controversial CD-row.
