Old-time BJP supporters and members LK Advani and Murli Manohar Joshi were asked about their participation in the coming Lok Sabha polls. Everyday is a new day demanding change with the coming Lok Sabha elections. LK Advani and MM Joshi were asked by the BJP head whether they will be contesting the Lok Sabha elections.

LK Advani won the 2014 elections from Gandhinagar and MM Joshi raised hie flag in Kanpur. Both the veterans are asked about their participation in the Lok Sabha elections 2019. BJP said “ We do not ignore both of them but the decision of contesting elections is all upon them, we would not force either.” Joshi on BJP’s statement said that he will be glad to do whatever the party members decide for him. BJP is yet to decide whether they both will be given the chance to contest or not.

This time other veterans like Sushma Swaraj and Uma Bharti also took a step backward from BJP citing their poor health.

However MM Joshi and LK Advani do not look satisfied with the BJP’s decision of not appointing members above 75 to any post. Advani questioned BJP of retirement criteria among the ministers and also blamed the government for their disapproval on his post of Lok Sabha speaker position. Advani who wanted to become the Lok Sabha speaker was bounded by age bars and Sumitra Mahajan was appointed for the speaker post.

After the elections in Bihar Advani and MM Joshi wrote a letter to BJP asking questions about the leadership. According to sources Congress can take the advantage of veterans leave from BJP.
