BJP has given me much more than PM's post: Advani

Veteran BJP leader L K Advani, who turned 85 today, appeared ambivalent on his prime ministerial ambition when he said what he has got from the party in life was much more than occupying the top post.

"Party has given me so much all my life that when somebody says you have to become the Prime Minister, I say becoming Prime Minister is not more than what I have got from the party," Advani told reporters here as leaders including BJP President Nitin Gadkari called on him and greeted him on the occasion.

He was asked what is the party's gift to him.

Advani, apparently unhappy over continuance of Gadkari as party president in the wake of charges of dubious funding of is Purti Group, had kept away from the BJP Core Group meeting on November 6 where the party announced that it has full faith in the BJP President's leadership.
