If Vajpayee is the Bhishma, Murali Manohar Joshi is the Kripacharya of BJP, L.K. Advani is the Dronacharya of BJP in India. The above screenshots image shows the retweets made by Shri Advani, about Shri Narendra Modi. All the tweets were made prior to 2014 Lok Sabha Elections.
Now, we shall see how Shri Narendra Modi was prostrating before Advani.
For those who wish to read the above retweets (said to have been) made by Shri L.K. Advani, middle member of the Trinity of the BJP.
http://https://twitter.com/LKAdvaniBJP . Prima facie this Twitter looks like the Genuine Twitter site of Shri L.K. Advani. It will be better if he confirms that it is his Official Twitter site, or alternatively denies it that it was created by some unscrupulous netizen.
Strangely, Shri L.K. Advani does not appear to have tweeted anything about Shri Narendra Modi, after Shri Modi became PM of India, after ditching both Mr. Advani and Mr. Joshi, without at least taking them as Ministers in the Central Cabinet. Had Mr. Modi done that, it would have enhanced the prestige of Mr. Narendra Modi.
Shri Advani coolly accepted the Padma VibhUshaN thrown out as a bait by Mr. Modi. Probably Mr. Advani was expecting, or Mr. Rajnath Singh and Mr. Modi promised him to make him President of India, when Mr. Pranab Mukherjee retires.
About the debacle in BJP in 2015 Bihar Assembly Elections, it would have happened even if Mr. Advani or Mr. Joshi were Prime Ministers. In my personal view, the principal cause for the loss of BJP in Bihar is the Economic Policies of Messrs. Modi and Arun Jaitley, which were not different from the Economic Policies of Messrs. Manmohan Singh and Chidambaram.
All the four i.e. Vajpayee, Advani, Modi, Joshi have the same perspective about Indian Economy. All of them were/are/will be ready to beat people with the sticks of Economic Reforms dictated by IMF, World Bank, WTO, World Economic Forum, Standard and Poor, Moodys, and every Tom Dick and Harry from the Capitalist World. People do not want Reforms. They want Relief.
Mr. Jaitley neglected the price rises which are biting the man on the Street. BJP leaders tried to pass on the blame to Mr. Nitish Kumar, canvassing that he did not care to use the facilities provided by the Centre for import of essential commodities and for controlling price-rises. Mr. Nitish Kumar turned the tables on BJP that price-rise was not only restrited to Bihar and that prices were rising even in BJP States.
Who among among Mr. Vajpayee, Mr. Advani, Mr. Joshi, and Mr. Modi, is the best , as per your donkey's view?
All are equal. Mr. Vajpayee and Mr. Advani look like liberal and moderate politicians when compared to Mr. Joshi and Modi, but appearances can be deceptive. Very few people know about the shoddy and suspicious role played by Mr. Vajpayee in Quit INDIA Movement. Both Mr. Advani and Vajpayee made inflammatory speeches (copies of the CDs of their speeches were available at that time) which led to the illegal destruction of Babri Masjid. If at all the destruction was to be done, it should have been done through a legal process through Court Orders. The parties to that dispute must either have co-operated with the courts in speeding up the judgement, or alternatively entered into some sort of compromise.
