BJP veteran leader L K Advani who broke his silence yesterday through a blog, has made quite a buzz on micro-blogging site Twitter. Advani's take on nationalism is ever since trending on the social media site.
Advani in his blog titled "Nation First, Party Next, Self Last" on Thursday asserted that the BJP had "never regarded those who disagree with us politically as enemies, but only as our adversaries" and that the BJP's conception of Indian nationalism never regarded those who disagreed with it politically as "anti-national".
In his Advani had also said democracy, both within and outside the party, was an important hallmark of the BJP.
Banerjee took to Twitter, saying, "As the senior most politician, fmr Dy PM and founding father of BJP, the views Advani Ji has expressed about extending democratic courtesies,is significant. Of course, all Opposition who raise their voices are not anti-national. We welcome his statement & convey our humble regards."
Advani's blog was reported to have come after a period of five years.
