Krishna Gopal to write a new chapter

October 21 2014

A new relationship may be unfolding between the BJP and the Sangh Parivar after the saffron flag has managed to come up tops in Maharashtra and Haryana. But the most significant thing is that the knots of relations are coming undone and the equation between Modi and Bhagwat is changing the very fabric of BJP-Sangh understanding. Krishna Gopal, who is a Brahmin from Mathura and on whom Sangh head Mohan Bhagwat has implicit faith, has now taken it upon himself to bridge the gap in the relationship between the two organisations. Suresh Soni had been in-charge of the BJP for a long time and for the past two years, rumours are rife about him leaving. But he lost his sheen somewhat after being names in the Vyapam Scam. One thing is for sure, though, that Soni’s departure is going to affect the political future of several BJP politicians. Everyone knows that Soni was known to be extremely close to Arun Jaitley and Rajnath Singh. Apart from these two, Soni’s loyalists included Venkaiah Naidu, Ananth Kumar, Ravi Shankar Prasad, Dharmendra Pradhan, Piyush Goyal, Prakash Javdekar, Nirmala Seetharaman and Devendra Fadnavis. Maharashtra’s late OBC later Gopinath Munde was also in Soni’s good books. It is worth remembering that it was Soni who had forwarded the political career of Devendra Fadnavis on the cost of a public leader and orator from Vidarbha, Sudhir Mungantiwar.
