LK Advani -  Narendra ModiNew Delhi : Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi’s supporters are protesting outside senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader LK Advani’s residence in the national capital, reports said on Saturday.

The protesters, who gathered outside Advani’s residence, were reportedly shouting slogans like, “Jan Jan Ki Yahi Pukaar, Narendra Modi Agli Baar”.

There were reports that the senior party leader was upset about a decision to make Narendra Modi the head of the party’s campaign committee for the 2014 General Elections.

Modi, who emerged as a strong contender to be the party’s prime ministerial candidate, is likely to be formally declared head of the party’s campaign committee for the 2014 General Elections, something Advani and some other leaders have opposed.

Advani had suggested the formation of two campaign committees, one for the upcoming Assembly Elections in five states this year-end, led by Modi, and another one for the General Elections of 2014.

“Unwell” Advani skipped the office bearers’ meeting in Goa held on Friday and today. Senior party leaders say this is the first time in their memory that the party stalwart has stayed away from a meeting of the national executive.

Meanwhile, addressing a press conference, BJP spokesman Prakash Javadekar today said, “Advani wanted to attend the meeting, if not today at least tomorrow, but could not because doctors advised him to take rest for another three-four days.”

“He (BJP president Rajnath Singh) spoke to him personally and asked him (LK Advani) not to take the strain to attend the meet,” Javadekar further said.
