Modi detractor Sanjay Joshi slams anti-BJP posters


Sanjay Joshi
New Delhi, Jun 18: Following the exit of former Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Sanjay Joshi from the party, there were rumours abuzz that there was a rift within the party. It was also considered as an instance of political high-handedness displayed by Gujarat CM Narendra Modi and the clout he enjoyed within the party. With many anti-Modi posters making an appearance, the matter was highlighted more than ever before. Joshi has, however, appealed to shut all rumours and not put up any posters featuring him.

Joshi also requested those responsible for putting up the posters to not attack BJP leaders since it would only hurt the party's image. He has been quoted as saying, "This is a job of conspirators, yet I appeal to all my well-wishers and supporters to refrain from putting up any posters or issue pamphlets."

Joshi's appeal came on the BJP letter head in spite of the fact that he had officially quit the party on Jun 8. The posters that had emerged post his exit had suggested that it was the stubbornness of "one leader" that led to Joshi's exit from the BJP's national executive. Apparently referring to Modi, the posters had subtly laid the blame on him for Joshi's exit from the party.

Joshi added, "Such activities harm the party's image and I have always considered the party above myself. The importance of an individual is due to the organisation. For me, the party and its ideology is above all. We are significant only as long as the BJP is there, hence we should not take any step that would harm the party."

Joshi, an RSS favourite, has been a vocal critic of Modi since long and has been maintaining that the party was above any individual.
