LK Advani will continue to lead : Rajnath

After a three-day brainstorming session, BJP chief Rajnath Singh on Friday said LK Advani will continue to lead the party and gave clear signals that dissent and indiscipline will not be tolerated.

Referring to the expulsion of senior leader Jaswant Singh after the publication of his controversial biography of Pakistan founder Muhammad Ali Jinnah, BJP president Rajnath Singh said at a press conference, “There will be no compromise on discipline.”

At the conclusion of the party’s three-day ‘chintan baithak’ in Shimla, Mr. Rajnath Singh asserted that there would be no dilution of Hindutva. The party remained committed to the “political thought and ideology with which it had begun its political journey first as the Jana Sangh and then the BJP.”

Earlier in the day, Sushma Swaraj described Mr. Jaswant Singh’s expulsion as “sad and painful but necessary.”
