    Gadkari will lead BJP in the next General Elections

    ________________________________________________

    NEW DELHI: Procedural decks have been cleared for Nitin Gadkari to get a second term as BJP chief, with party office-bearers approving an amendment which would enable functionaries to get two back-to-back tenures.

    He will be the second BJP chief to serve two consecutive terms. L K Advani was the first to get two straight terms before the party amended its constitution to bar the incumbent from getting re-elected as party chief.

    A meeting of party office-bearers approved the amendment which, though generic, appears to have been specifically scripted to implement the wish of RSS leadership to continue with Gadkari for another term. However, the amendment will be so worded to ensure that back-to-back terms to heads of party units, from the national president right down to the district level, are given only in exceptional circumstances and don't become the norm.

    The amendment is set to be adopted at the two-day meeting of the BJP national executive beginning on May 24 in Mumbai.

    Although the re-appointment is required to be ratified by the party's national council, getting the nod of the larger body will just be a formality, and Gadkari can start functioning straightaway.

    The second term for Gadkari reflects RSS leadership's assessment that he is the best bet, as well as its anxiety to put its house in order before the 2014 general elections. His appointment as party chief, a decision of RSS, came as a surprise because of both his unfamiliarity with the ways of Delhi Durbar and his relatively young age.

    Gadkari has taken some controversial decisions in recent past , ill- suited to BJP's image. I don't think he is good enough. Probably nobody in BJP wished to disturb the status quo.
    But Gadkari should change his ways and stop compromising with tainted elements. Corruption will be the single biggest issue in the next election

    Gadkari is a great administrator, his contacts with business community is a big advantage. Also he has quite a hold on traders from south & AP/Karnataka biggies. No doubt that MH BJP has suffered due to his personal clashes with some leaders, but overall he can manage the party better at national level. And he is RSS's favorite.

    There is breach of discipline in every party. One can not just eliminate it. Sometimes political obligations make you overlook incidents of indiscipline.
