Reignites Divisive Issue Within BJP

Mohua Chatterjee TNN

New Delhi: Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray,the BJPs oldest ally,has endorsed Sushma Swaraj as the NDAs prime ministerial candidate,reigniting the divisive leadership issue within the main opposition party.
This comes at a time when the party is in an aggressive mood and needs to project a united face to take on the ruling Congress over irregularities in coal block allocations.It also brings to the fore the festering leadership question in the party.

Thackeray,in an interview to the Sena mouthpiece Saamna on Sunday,said Swaraj was the only leader in the BJP who was deserving and would make a great choice for the prime ministers post.

At present there is only one person who is intelligent,brilliant Sushma Swaraj.I have said this many times... She would be a great choice for PM's post.

She is a deserving,intelligent woman.She would deliver a great performance, he said when asked who in the BJP could become the PM candidate.

Thackerays comments evoked a weak response,as expected,from the BJP with no big leader reacting to it.Balbir Punj told the media that the BJP had a number of capable leaders who could become prime minister.

BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi added,The party has many leaders who are competent to become prime minister and are acceptable in the country... a decision on this will be taken by BJP and its NDA partners at the time of the elections.

Predictably,the BJPs other important ally,the JD (U),said the NDA would take a call on the prime ministerial candidate when the time comes.The endorsement for Swaraj comes soon after she met the Sena supremo in Mumbai last week,and also coincides with a vicious campaign let loose against a senior party leader,making allegations against him,which is being viewed as linked to the power struggle within the BJP.

With the party scheduled to hold its national executive and national council meeting later this month,where it hopes to fine-tune its line at a time when the political atmosphere is charged over Coalgate,rising prices,talk of early polls and formation of various fronts by smaller parties,the leadership debate is surely going to hold precedence.

The Congress,meanwhile,took a swipe at the NDA,with spokesperson Manish Tewari saying,The larger NDA suffers from a unique malady of anointing prime ministers without awaiting for peoples verdict ... The NDA/BJP should not count their chickens before they hatch.While in 2007,there was one PM-inwaiting (in the NDA),by 2012,the numbers are multiplying at a rate that defies the logic of calculation.

Bihari Thackerays should quit Mumbai: Lalu

Patna: RJD president Lalu Prasad on Sunday asked Shiv Sena leader Balasaheb Thackeray,his son Uddhav and nephew and MNS chief Raj Thackeray to leave Maharashtra immediately as they,being Biharis,are themselves infiltrators.

Bal Thackerays entire family is originally from Bihars Magadh region.They are not Marathas.They are actually Bihari kayasthas,now settled in Mumbai.So they should leave Maharashtra as soon as possible, Lalu said.

He further said Mumbai is the financial capital of India.How can a family decide who will live in Mumbai the RJD chief asked,adding that Biharis are contributing to building Maharashtra by their unparalleled intellect and hard work.They are neither harming its interest nor creating any trouble for the locals, he said.TNN
