Nagpur: Senior BJP leader Murli Manohar Joshi called on RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat at the headquarters of the outfit here today and reportedly batted for respectable positions in new government for “sidelined” saffron leaders of his ilk.


A former HRD minister in the NDA regime, Joshi during his meeting with Bhagwat is believed to have sought RSS' intervention to ensure that senior party leaders get their due and respect if the BJP-led NDA forms government at Centre, sources said.

Joshi had reluctantly “vacated” his Varanasi Lok Sabha seat in Uttar Pradesh for BJP's prime ministerial nominee Narendra Modi and contested election from Kanpur.

Besides Joshi, party veterans like LK Advani and Jaswant Singh too were “sidelined” apparently for not falling in line.
