The people who have seen a real Prime Minister in Atal Behari Vajpeyee wonder how the face of BJP is missing from the publicity materials of the saffron party.
There should be no doubt that Vajpayee and L K Advani are the two strong pillars on which the BJP as a national party has been standing strong.
Both were instrumental in setting up of the BJP after end of Bharatiya Jansangh. They had to fight a long battle with the Sangh Parivar people for establishing BJP as a political party with a difference.
And Vajpayee has proved it and the people across the country remember him as a different Prime Minister. Thanks to his oratory skill and clear thinking.
The saffron party which has been organizing its National Executive meeting here on April 15 and 16, seems to have forgotten the duo. Interestingly, Vajpayee is alive though Sick and Advani himself is coming down to the Odisha State Capital to attend the national executive meeting.
Odisha’s State Capital has been saffronized and the entire city is dotted with life size cut-outs of only two leaders- Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP National President Amit Shah.
hoardings are seen right from the Airport till Janata Maidan, about five kilometer stretch.
However, it would be very difficult to find a single hoarding of Vajpayee and former deputy prime minister L K Advani who have immense contribution for the growth of BJP in the country.
BJP is known as the party with a difference. But, is it the difference to ignore the stalwarts who built the party with their heart and soul?
