L.K. Advani, the octogenarian leader of BJP, wanted to contest as a Member of Parliament this time from Bhopal as against his old constituency Gandhi Nagar. Disregarding his preference his party is giving him ticket from Gandhi Nagar. A leader of the stature of Advani’s very well deserved his choice having been duly entertained. After all it is he alongwith Atal Bihari Vajpai who could take the party to a pinnacle and status where it stands today. His is a Himalyan stature if the strength of the party is the concern and he should not have been treated as some Tom, Dick or Harry. On earlier occasions also several of his view points on the working of the party were ignored but at least in the matter of allotting him a constituency to contest the election there is apparently no reason in denying him his choice. Whose veto might have worked in in this regard is a different matter but, as it appears on the surface, it was a deliberate move to ridicule him, an action the people may not like.
