New Delhi, March 24: BJP president Rajnath Singh stirred a controversy on Monday by posting two tweets within a gap of 33 minutes. In the first tweet, Singh said: "Time For Change, Time For BJP. Abki Baar, Bhajapa Sarkar" while in the second one, he rectified it to say: "Time For Change, Time For BJP. Bahut Hui Mehngai Ki Maar, Abki Baar Modi Sarkar."

According to political observers, the first tweet was perhaps an attempt by the BJP president to downplay the internal differences in the party. The BJP is witnessing a lot of problems over the allocation of seats of late and the old guards of the party have been particularly left an upset lot.While MM Joshi had to vacate his seat for Modi and LK Advani reluctantly agreed to contest from Gandhinagar, Jaswant Singh even went to the extent of filing his nomination from Barmer as an Independent candidate after the party refused to give him a ticket.

But perhaps Rajnath sensed that replacing Modi Sarkar with Bhajapa Sarkar could affect a greater section of the party workers for the Modi factor has been pushing the party to overcome all odds.

Hence came the second tweet to bury all confusion.

Leading the party with a difference is not an easy task, ask Rajnath.
