Notwithstanding the BJP and RSS's attempts to brush aside Vaidya's remarks, it was the first time someone from within the Sangh Parivar had hinted at the bitter battle within the BJP for the top post, and voiced allegations that have been floating around.
The BJP amended its constitution in September enabling Gadkari to make a bid for a second consecutive term as party president, meaning he could lead the party in the next Lok Sabha elections. The party chief, in fact, was believed to have bought peace with Modi by succumbing to his demands and getting former party general secretary Sanjay Joshi, a known Modi baiter, out of the BJP national executive.
