Advani paying for defending Modi after 2002 riots: Congress

Subscribe to Oneindia News

New Delhi, June 11: The Congress on Monday sought to give a different twist to LK Advani's resignation from key BJP posts by suggesting that he was atoning his "political sin" of defending Narendra Modi after the Gujarat riots in 2002.

Party spokesperson Shakeel Ahmed also said that Advani was "deliberately humiliated" by the RSS by elevating Modi as he had opposed attempts to bring back Nitin Gadkari as BJP chief due to graft charges against him.

Ahmed also took a dig at the BJP over the manner in which Advani had to quit wondering as to what sort of Ram Rajya the saffron party wants to usher in where the father is being sent to 'vanvaas' (exile).

Advani is always referred as a father-figure in the BJP as also 'Bhishma Pitamah'.
