Coalition era may return: Advani
At a time when Prime Minister Narendra Modi enjoys a full majority , veteran Bharatiya Janata Party leader LK Advani does not rule out a return to coalition politics. According to reports Advani said, “I still believe that a country as diverse and variegated as India may throw another coalition government again. In a country like India everyone should be prepared for all eventualities.” On other issues, Advani said it would be very fitting tribute for a patriot like former Prime Minister and BJP leader Atal Bihari Vajpayee to be conferred the Bharat Ratna.
Asked if the time had come for the new government to acknowledge Vajpayee’s contributions with Bharat Ratna, Advani said, “I don’t think Bharat Ratna is appropriate as a reward or something that Vajpayee has contributed to the country, whatever he has done, he has been doing his duty both as a patriot well as the person assigned for the responsibility of becoming the PM of the country.”
