Bengaluru, April 4: Veteran Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader LK Advani refused to accept Amit Shah's invitation and declared that he will not speak at the national executive meet in Bengaluru.

BJP meet:Why did Advani refuse to speak?

However, Advani's decision of not attending the crucial meet surprised many. According to experts, Advani might be upset with party's decision following which he was removed from BJP's parliamentary committee.

Advani along with Murli Manohar Joshi and Atal Bihari Vajpayee was removed from the committee which is the highest decision making body of the BJP.

This was the second consecutive time when Advani missed the meet. Advani, one of BJP's main founding members and tallest leaders, has attended and addressed at all national executive meetings of the party, except during the last meet in Goa when Narendra Modi was announced to be the head of party's campaign committee in Lok Sabha polls.

Advani had not only skipped the event but also sent a letter resigning from all posts of the party.

His differences with the party's decision were later reconciled.

After that more than once Advani has congratulated Modi for leading the BJP to victory in general elections.
