  1. I doubt that Modi’s knows some thing about Advani’s & if that comes out then Advsni’s position will be demolished.
    So Advani’s do not want to take any risk by revolting against Modi’s.
    Till date Haren Pandys death is a mistry & hope Advani’s know many things.

    Advani’s is repenting & remembering the yr 2002 when ABV wanted resignation of then CM if Gujarat..

  2. Why Advani ji attend Such function and faced insult to injuries !! What compelling him to do so?
    I would like “The Print” should answer my queries।
