It is official, Advani will not attend Executive meet

New Delhi, June 8 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) spokesperson, Prakash Javadekar, has stated that Lal Krishna Advani will not attend the BJP National Executive meet on Sunday as he had been advised rest by the doctors.

Commenting on the report that some senior BJP leaders had opted to skip the party's National Executive meeting in Goa Javadekar said, "I would hope that whoever is ill recuperates soon. Politics aside, personally, we wish everyone is healthy."

Meanwhile, asked to comment on reports that some senior BJP leaders had opted to skip the party's National Executive meeting in Goa, senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh said : "We have nothing to do with BJP, would want it (BJP) to stay ill."

On Friday, in the absence of some BJP leaders like L.K.Advani and Yashwant Sinha, Modi was given a rousing welcome by party leaders and activists on his arrival in Panaji, Goa, for the National Executive Meeting.

Insiders in the BJP camp have tipped Modi to be appointed the head of the party's campaign committee. A decision on this, which was likely to be taken on Friday, has now been deferred and may be taken on Sunday.(ANI)
