    A very long article but well worth the read.

    I don't think the article portrays that RSS dislikes Modi because of his "non-brahmin" heritage but there are some differences because he was "indisciplined". Aferall, the article clearly mentions that RSS lobbied very strongly for Modi after the 2002 riots when many leaders in the BJP including the then PM Vajpayee wanted him to resign. RSS puts very strong emphasis on the parachaks listening to their elders no matter what they say. And Modi it seems didn't like to follow this unquestioning obedience. In Western societies, this would be an admired trait IMO. However, in India where you have to manage extensive diversity and "elders" command respect just because of their age, this could play out negatively.

    You can see that independent/undisciplined streak even in the current saga where Modi has refused to campaign in current phase of polls in UP/Punjab e.t.c. And this certainly will create friction between BJP high command and RSS on the one hand and Modi and Co. on the other.

    Too long article to discuss. It's mainly description of MODI and RSS. Few things are correct and few are exaggerated and wrong.

    RSS did support Modi so that he can remain CM after 2002 riot even if ABV government falls. NDA government was just lucky that few so called secular parties kept supporting Vajpayee. But I don't think RSS don't support Modi anymore. It's just perception which is not reality. Nowadays, His image is bigger than Gujarat BJP. So, Some concern. But Historically, Most of the RSS stalwart never left BJP. Shankar Vaghela was 2nd biggest RSS cadre of Gujarat after Kesubhai Patel when he was was in BJP. He ditched the party but today he doesn't have any stronghold. same thing happened with Kalyan Singh. UMA Bharti returned. In BJP. All leaders were big when they were with BJP but nothing without party. BJP is cadres based party and not leader based. Leaders are secondary but cadres are primary.

    The Brahmin lobby is totally crap. Never heard from any source. RSS never thinks in that way and i can say with full confidence. If Brahmin was the reason, Why RSS supported OBC Modi even if Vajpayee government falls ?

    As for U.P., Modi not campaigning is blessing in disguise. Gadkari didn't wanted Muslims to polarize against BJP. It's low-hype below radar campaign in order to improve number. Strategy is good if it works. Even Varun Gandhi is not campaigning. I mentioned it. http://defenceforumindia.com/politics-society/32231-if-bjp-wins-up-election.html
