Amit Shah may meet Advani, Joshi on today
New Delhi, April 08: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Amit Shah may meet party veterans L K Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi on Monday, days after the party dropped both leaders as its Lok Sabha candidates.
The BJP has replaced Advani, who represented Gandhinagar for many years, with Shah as its candidate from the constituency in Gujarat. Joshi has been replaced with Satyadev Pachauri in Kanpur.
Joshi issued a statement, saying the party told him it would not nominate him as the BJP candidate from Kanpur.
While Advani has not said anything about being dropped from the party's list of Lok Sabha candidates, he wrote a blog asserting his party never regarded those who disagreed with it politically as "anti-national".
Shah is likely to meet both leaders on the day the party released its manifesto.
