Haridwar, Aug 31(ANI): Rashtriya Swayam Sewak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat on Monday said that BJP leaders LK Advani and Rajnath Singh will decide on their role within the party.
Talking to reporters here, Bhagwat said, "Rajnathji, Advaniji and others will decide on their role in the party. Everything will be fine in the BJP in future."
"There are people with moral standing like Advani and under their guidance, they will solve all problems. We have nothing to do with this," he added
While the BJP had said that Rajnath Singh will not get an extension as party president beyond his three-year term that ends in December, there were reports that Advani may step down as Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha but the timing for it has been left to him.
Bhagwat had a breakfast meeting with Advani on Sunday and had discussions with other senior leaders.
Sunday's breakfast meeting between Advani and Bhagwat was the second between the two. They had earlier met on Saturday afternoon for about two hours at the RSS headquarters Keshavkunj in Delhi to discuss various issues.
Saturday's meeting took place amid reports that the RSS has readied a succession plan for the BJP. However, BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar told reporters at a press conference that no succession plan was discussed.
The RSS is believed to have told the BJP leadership to set its house in order. That this is being given serious thought was evident when top brass of the BJP met at Advani's residence yesterday morning for about two hours and briefed him about their discussions with Bhagwat on Friday.
Sources said the RSS has firmly asked BJP leaders to end the infighting in the party and reach consensus on a new party chief. (ANI)
