ADVANI DAYS ARE OVER

BJP’s tallest leader Mr. L K Advani’s days in national politics are appears to be over, because of Kandhahar episode. Mr. Advani has consistently denied any knowledge of release of three hard core terrorists and the then external affairs minister accompanying the terrorists to Kandahar for release of hostages on board of AI flight. Even during the election campaign in 2008 he categorically denied any knowledge of the entire proceedings related to the hijack. The Cabinet committee on security barring Mr. Vajpayee who handled the Kandhahar crisis have confirmed that Advani was in know of things relating to release of terrorists. Mr. Advani should explain to the Nation what made him to lie consistently on this issue. His reputation as a credible leader has taken severe beating. For decades I admired Mr. Advani for his leadership qualities and for his frankness. Likewise millions of followers and admirers have lost faith in him. It is the reputation that matters in public life, particularly for tall leaders like him. It is time that the BJP leadership acknowledges the waning charisma of Advani and accepts his resignation from all positions. Credible young leaders should take over the reins of the party.
