Expose the Appeasement Policy during Yatra: Atal
New Delhi, Apr 5: Former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee today advised senior BJP leader L. K. Advani and BJP President Rajnath Singh to expose the dangers of the UPA's appeasement policy towards minorities during the twin yatra.
Mr Advani and Mr Singh had called at Mr Vajpayee's residence this monring to seek his blessings before embarking on the yatras.
While wishing them all success, Mr Vajpayee said they must caution the people about the drawbacks of the policy of minoritism. Besides they should also work for boosting the morale of the cadre during their yatras.
Mr Jaswant singh, leader of the Opposition in the rajya Sabha, BJP leaders Anant Kumar, Ravi shankar Prasad and Prakash Javadekar were among those present on the occasion.
While Mr Advani will begin his yatra from Rajkot in Gujarat, Mr Singh would do so from Bhubaneshwar in Orissa. Former BJP President M Venkaiah Naidu who is the convener of the yatras, would flag off Mr Singh's Yatra.
Talking to newspersons later, Mr Rajnath singh said Mr Vajpayee had blessed them with success of the Yatras.
Asked if Mr Vajpayee would join the Yatras at some point, he said several senior BJP leaders would participate in the Yatra but their programmes were yet to be finalised.
