BJP also sought to distance itself from Vaidya's remark, saying that no such information has been given to the party.
In his blog, Vaidya has said the “Needle of suspicion in the campaign against BJP president Nitin Gadkari points to Gujarat BJP and Chief Minister Narendra Modi.”
He also noted that “Ram Jethmalani had in one breath said he is seeking the resignation of Gadkari and that he also wanted to see Narendra Modi as the Prime Minister in 2014.”
While both L K Advani and Gadkari have publicly stated that they don't have Prime Ministerial ambitions, Vaidya, a former spokesman of RSS, said he “hasn't read anywhere that Narendra Modi has denied reports of his ambition to become the Prime Minister”.
Vaidya today stood by his remark, saying, “It is my opinion and because Jethmalani has combined two things demanding Gadkari's resignation and making Narendra Modi as PM, I think that the needle of suspicion goes to Gujarat.
“I did not say that, I just said needle of suspicion goes to Modi and that raises suspicion if Jethmalani is entitled to his own point of view, I am also entitled to my point of view and RSS has nothing to do with it.”
However, RSS official spokesperson Ram Madhav said the views expressed in the blog by Vaidya are personal and this is “not the official RSS line”.
Reacting to Vaidya's remarks, BJP leader M Venkaiah Naidu said, “No such information has been given to us. We are not reacting at all. Let the inquiry be over, let there be no trial outside, it is not fair. I don't know from where this information came. I don't think that this is view of RSS. I can also tell you.
“I am also a RSS swayamsevak, with my own experience of 40 years RSS has not expressed such views, it is not an authorised opinion of RSS. Let me make it very clear. To my knowledge and understanding as a swayamsevak, I also know how RSS functions and as a BJP functionary I don't agree with reported things,” Naidu said.
Earlier, BJP Rajya Sabha MP Ram Jethmalani and his son Mahesh had said Gadkari should immediately step down from his post as charges against him with regard to funding of his Purti group were damaging the party.
Jethmalani had claimed to have the support of other senior party leaders like Jaswant Singh, Yashwant Sinha and Shatrughan Sinha.
Talking to reporters at his residence here, Vaidya today said, "There seems to be unrest in the BJP and the lack of solidarity is evident in the party with members openly expressing their resentment".
He said even if there were differences of opinion in the RSS, the Sangh parivar comes out with only one statement or takes one stand in public.
He also said it was too early to talk about Lok Sabha elections and the Prime Ministerial candidate.
"PM candidate and talk of elections will commence only in 2013 when Assembly elections of other states are over and not after the Gujarat Assembly elections are held," he said.
It seems there are some vested interest,unhappy with Mr. Mody within the BJP, who want Mody and BJP to loose the elections in Gujrat, due to allegations against BJP president they have become active and want to divide the party, in facts this is the for BJP cadre to stand unitedly behind Mr. Mody and win Gujrat elections.
No one the earth can stop Modi of becoming next PM of India.Only Modi can rescue the country from the jaws of dynsty ruled most corrupted UPA. This all ridiculous comments of vested interest will never able to weaken the growing strength of BJP and NDA. Of course some biased media sponsored by the ruling alliance would always try as done in the past, which will go in total vein. Donot worry UPA, BJP-led NDA is unstoppable, because the India has already decided in favour of the BJP-NDA and just waiting for the time only.
It shows how cong people are frustrated !!!!! so that they have highered paid people ?? they want to have inner crack between RSS and BJP using top most leaders names. But mission failed and people new what's fact too !!!!!!!
It does not require a Newton to guess this. Court Jester and opportunist Mr Ram Jethmalani fell for this as he is awaiting for an opportunity to get noticed in the media. When even this did not get enough headlines, he resorted to even brazen criticism of Ram, showing his lack of understanding of basic facts of Ramayana. If he does not like Ram why did he not change his name from Ram Jethmalani to Narendra Jethmalani or Rahul Jethmalani ?
I feel Shri Modi is strong personality suitable to rule the country as not at all envious to any other leaders.
The open Focusing of personal vision in regard to the sensitive issue of Political Organization can create an error in the Political Cadre of B.J.P. and the vision 2014 can be set aside if all dose not goes well . The pin pointing by a Senior Leader of R.S.S has really created an error among the B.J.P. Cadre . As Who will succeed whom cannot be predicted but one thing is clear that united we Stand Divided we Fall . B.J.P. Cadre should stand united and even the R.S.S. Leaders should refrain from quoting comments that can reverse the sentiments of the B.J.P. Cadre .
This man must be out of his senses or he is acting as a congress agent. Mr. Modi has been busy building the Gujarat State while Gad Kari has been eating the national wealth like a Kari (elephant). He is still holding the post shamelessly and should be sent out if he does not leave by himself. Even this Vaidya should be removed from the RSS for damaging its cause. The efforts of Mr Jaitley to bring back Yedurappa should be given wide support. This factionalistic people should be identified and snubed appropriately.
where is the need to go public in blogs where is the epicentre of anti gadkari campaign. if you strongly felt about this discuss with fellow maharastrian bhagawat and dont discuss in blogs.and dont disturb modi Rss doesnt speak where it is needed and poke its nose when not called for.
