Advani’s Political Career More or Less Over, Says Senior BJP Leader

Comparing veteran BJP leader LK Advani with an ageing pickle, senior party leader Manohar Parrikar has said that Advani’s political innings are “more or less over”.

Speaking to a local news channel on Monday, the former Goa chief minister said that Advani had only a couple of more years left in active politics.

“Pickle tastes good when it is left to mature for a year. But when if you keep it for more than two years, it turns rancid… Advani-ji’s period is more or less over. Another couple of years, maybe. But he should be around as a guide or a mentor for the party members,” Parrikar said.

Presently leader of opposition in the Goa assembly, Parrikar described Advani as the best leader in the BJP in terms of integrity and character.

“I have great respect for Advani-ji on these counts,” he said.

Parrikar, 54, was of the view that party would have to project a new youthful face with credibility.

“I am not against elders, but the BJP should give prominence to leaders who are between 40 and 60 years,” he said.

Parrikar has reportedly been touted as a successor to BJP president Rajnath Singh, whose term ends in December.
