How Vijender won

May 28 2010

It was at the eleventh hour that Corporation leader Vijender Gupta won the race for the post of president of Delhi BJP because at one point of time it appeared that he had lost out to Ram Kishen Singhal in the race. It is being said that in a meeting of senior leaders of the party, Singhal’s name had been approved with consensus and after that Sushma Swaraj, who was heading this campaign, went out of station. After this Gupta ran to seek Jaitley’s support and Jaitley took Gupta to Gadkari, where in the presence of Ananth Kumar the name of Singhal was cut and that of Gupta was pushed ahead. Since Jaitley had already got the approval from Advani for Gupta’s name, so the opposition from most of the BJP legislators in Delhi went in vain since they were not agreeable to Gupta’s name at any cost. Even otherwise the president owes a lot of Jaitley for the 1500 crore talk and so he could not muster the courage to ignore his demand.
