Now, Rajnath Singh lands in twitter row for downplaying rift within party

Now, Rajnath Singh lands in twitter row for downplaying rift within party
This time the BJP president landed into a twitter controversy in an attempt to downplay the rift within the party, which was highlighted by almost all the media industry over distribution of tickets to the Congress rebellion.

However, within 33 minutes he had released his ‘mistake’ — which could create a hurdle before the Modi wave — and saved another ‘self goal’ by twitting, ‘Time For Change, Time For BJP. Bahut Hui Mehngai Ki Maar, Abki Baar Modi Sarkar (Enough Inflation, now it’s time for Modi government).

On Sunday, the BJP saved a ‘self goal’ by rejecting Sri Ram Sene chief Pramid Muthalik’s membership of the party hours after his induction into the party by the Karnataka unit.

Singh initially, tweeted ‘Time For Change, Time For BJP. Abki Baar, Bhajpa Sarkar (Now it’s time for BJP government)’ but realising that this could create resentment among the people cosying in Modi’s camp and the party prime ministerial candidate himself, he immediately clarified his tweet and wrote, ‘Bahut Hui Mehngai Ki Maar, Abki Baar Modi Sarkar.’

When asked to comment on party president’s twitter controversy, BJP leader Amit Shah who is the general secretary and in-charge of Uttar Pradesh, said, ‘There is no confusion in the party but the confusion is with the media people.’

‘Confusion aap logon ke demag main hain (Confusion is there in your mind),’ he said, while pointing at the mediapersons.

Since the last couple of weeks, the BJP is witnessing a lot of problems over the allocation of seats and dumping the old guards of the party. While Murli Manohar Joshi had to vacate his seat for Modi and LK Advani reluctantly agreed to contest from Gandhinagar.

Another party leader Jaswant Singh even went to the extent of filing his nomination from Barmer as an Independent candidate after the party refused to give him a ticket.

Many leaders already started questioning the leadership of Modi and Rajnath. Sources said, Joshi was miffed over section of party leaders for not informing him personally about change of seat and claimed that he learnt the seat-change from media.

Another important party leader denied ticket from Amritsar for Arun Jaitley. Sidhu had made clear that he will not contest from anywhere else if not from Amritsar.
