Jaswant Singh fires fresh salvo, equates Advani with RGV

29, Aug 2009 By Pagal Patrakar

New Delhi. The rotting relationship between BJP and expelled leader Jaswant Singh decomposed to a further putrid level when Jaswant Singh equated BJP head L K Advani with noted filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma (RGV). Talking exclusively to Faking News, Mr. Singh claimed that Advani had no sense of direction like RGV and couldn’t do a thing right in the changing times. Jaswant Singh advised Advani to learn from the mistakes of the filmmaker and prescribed retirement for him, before masses reject him.

“BJP’s poor performance in the general elections was like RGV Ki Aag.  Akin to Amitabh Bachchan’s performance as being the saving grace there, performances by likes of Raman Singh and Shivraj Singh Chauhan were saving grace for us. But it’s not impossible to pick the other similarity; there was no sense of direction in both the places. While RGV chose to ignore the ensuing criticism and has continued to experiment with his mindless movies, Advaniji has gone a step further – he has not only chosen to ignore the criticisms, but has ordered to execute the critics as well.” Jaswant Singh told Faking News.

Jaswant Singh had earlier equated BJP with Ku Klux Klan (KKK) but experts believe that equating Advani with RGV has been the gravest attack by the ex-armyman against his estranged party and leader since his expulsion.

“It would be interesting to see how Advani reacts to it. Like RGV, he can ignore such ramblings and go on to make movies like Phoonk and Agyaat and still keep the hopes alive with Rann, but it might be difficult for the old warlord. Whatever be the case, the battle surely has entered an interesting phase.” a common journalist, who is also an expert on BJP, said excitedly.

Although Advani refrained from reacting and didn’t talk to journalists on this issue, various BJP leaders accused Jaswant Singh of indulging in cheap publicity by issuing such remarks. The party is considering filing a defamation suit against Singh. The case could be filed in Delhi as well as Islamabad courts.

“The citizens of this country will decide whether Advaniji is Ram Gopal Varma or not. But Jaswant Singhji surely is Vishal Bhardwaj who has unleashed his army of Kaminey against our party.” BJP leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi told Faking News.
