Advani asks party leaders to avoid fascination for being in news

By Super Admin

New Delhi, July 6 (ANI): Senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader Lal Krishan Advani on Monday expressed concern at the party leaders developing a habit of becoming news for the sake of drawing media attention.

"The urge (among some party leaders) to see their names in newspapers ...to see their face on TV for a few seconds ... Sometimes, I feel there are too many spokespersons in our party," Advani said at a function held to mark the birth anniversary of Jan Sangh founder Shyama Prasad Mookherjee in the national capital on Monday.

Several senior BJP leaders had spoken to news channels on the reasons for the party's poll defeat and letters written by some party leaders discussing internal party matters and disagreements were leaked to the media, leaving the party red faced.

Recalling the sacrifices made by Mookherjee, Deen Dayal Upadhyaya and Atal Bihari Vajpayee to raise BJP to its present state, Advani said the party should take all precautions to avoid mistakes as it negate these sacrifices."

"Leaders like Mookherjee, Deen Dayal, and Vajpayee have raised this party to this level... we should prevent little mistakes on our part ....", he said.

Advani said the recent election loss should not dishearten BJP members as the party had faced several "ups and downs" in the past. The party still has 116 Lok Sabha MPs.

The Leader of the Opposition said all had not been lost by the BJP after recent poll debacle. "The party has a bright future," Advani claimed. (ANI)
