Second day running, Advani won't be at BJP meet due to ill health

After his absence from the first day of the national executive meet sparked speculation over a rift with the party, the announcement that BJP stalwart LK Advani wouldn't be attending the second day as well only gave the theories further credence.

CNN-IBN quoted sources as saying that the senior BJP leader was still suffering from a stomach ailment and wouldn't be attending the second day of the national executive meet as well.

The decision on whether he would attend the third day of the meeting will be taken on Sunday itself, the sources were quoted as saying.

Advani's absence from the meet yesterday had sparked speculation that he was upset over the possible elevation of Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to the post of the party's 2014 election campaign .

While Modi had refused to comment on the issue, party chief Rajnath Singh had said that he had told Advani not to attend the meet on account of his ill health.
