NEW DELHI: After much speculation Advani at last revealed the motives behind the release of his book My Country My Life while launching a website on his book on Sunday.
He dedicated his site to the young generation of India who can learn a lot about politics from the book.
Through the site, BJP hopes to promote Advani as prime ministerial candidate and to get political thrust out of it.
The temperament in BJP quarter is high and they are sure to fetch the youth attentions through the portal.
Advani said, “It is the time to think about future. The main aim of this website is to tap the youth, to address the problems of youth and to try to gain maximum advantage during the elections by reaching out to the youth and popularising the ideology of the party.”
Advani also settled the dust on various mistakes pointed since the release of his book by accepting and apologising that there are mistakes and that chances are that there could be more mistakes in it. But kept himself aloof from the Kandahar controversies which has flared up the debate regarding his own credibility and Vajpayee’s regime.
Reportedly the book because of its factual error got undue attention and even Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) does not seem to have likened it for that.
Advani in his book has mentioned that he contacted US ambassador Robert Blackwill during Kandahar crisis which later denied that he was no where in the scene as he came after two years of Kandahar crisis in India. Advani has also prefixes veteran communist leader Satyapal Dang as late who is very much alive.
The ruling party accused him for narrating only his account not the full picture of the story.
Though Advani seems to be high on the election mood but he should also know that by narrating his story and projecting himself away from the collective decision taken during Vajpayee regime he is not only harming his own stance but his party’s too.
Also the majority of young generation to which Advani want to reach, lives in rural area and do not have access to internet but are poor farmers whose lives remains entrapped in earning bread and butter.
