BJP turmoil: CHAT with spokesperson Shahnawaz Hussain

June 11, 2013 19:10 IST

The Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday emerged from the throes of one of its worst crises yet when party patriarch L K Advani withdrew his resignation from key posts and agreed to 'accept' the party’s decision to appoint controversial Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as the president of its campaign committee for the 2014 Lok Sabha polls.

The BJP may have managed to narrowly avoid a political hailstorm but the current truce between the two party stalwarts is tremulous at best.

How did the BJP’s top brass manage to placate Advani? Will the saffron party be able to keep its flock together in the run-up to the general election? How will the 'secular' allies of BJP-led National Democratic Alliance react to Modi as a likely leader of the coalition?

To answer these and many more queries regarding the dissent brewing inside the BJP and the road ahead for the Lok Sabha election, party spokesperson and the youngest ever Union minister in the NDA Shahnawaz Hussain will participate in a Live Chat with Rediff readers at 1 pm on Wednesday, June 12.
