BJP internal rift escalates
Ahmedabad: In signs of growing dissent within the BJP, hoardings supporting party leader Sanjay Joshi have came up at various places in the city, targeting Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi ahead of the state elections scheduled in December this year. The hoardings and posters with Joshi`s pictures say, "Chote man se koi bada nahi hota, tute man se koi bada nahi hota (nobody becomes big with a narrow mind)".
It went on to say "kaho dil se… Sanjay Joshi phir se (Say with all your heart, Sanjay Joshi once again)". The hoardings apparently targeted the Gujarat Chief Minister though his name has not been written any where on them. They say that those having a narrow mind cannot become a big leader.
Modi had reportedly threatened to quit the national executive himself if Joshi was allowed to continue as its member. The BJP central leadership had then asked Joshi to resign from the national executive following which Modi went to Mumbai to attend the event last month. The Gujarat BJP unit has so far refused to say anything on the hoardings of Joshi.
