BJP leaders to finalise Advani, Rajnath yatra schedule
New Delhi, Mar 16 (UNI) Top BJP leaders will meet tomorrow to decide on the schedule and details of the simultaneous all-India yatras to be undertaken by Leader of Opposition L K Advani and party president Rajnath Singh.
The twin yatras, announced a day after the terrorist attack at the Sankat Mochan temple in Varanasi, were said to be aimed at highlighting the vote-bank politics of the UPA and its constituents and their Muslim appeasement policy which had led to weakening of the social fabric of the country.
The party has announced that the two leaders will be touching almost all parts of the country excepting the four states and the union territory of Pondicherry which are going for elections.
Mr Advani, who has undertaken several yatras starting from the Ram Rath Yatra in 1990, has asserted that all blunders committed by a ruling party, be it amending the Constitution nullifying the Supreme Court verdict on the Shah Bano case or religion based reservations by the Andhra Pradesh government and in the Aligarh Muslim University, had always resulted in change of direction in the national polity.
He said he expected the same to happen now that a Muslim head count in defence forces has been sought by the Justice Sachar Committee leading to widespread discontent in the civil society against the appeasement policy.
