With RSS push, is Varun poised for a BJP 'post'? - India - The Times of India

  • tags: no_tag

    • Sources claim that an important organisational post could be coming Varun's way even though the old guard in the state BJP is not too comfortable with the move to ``paradrop'' the young man who is no stranger to controversy.
    • In Sultanpur, the local RSS units worked overtime to coax crowds to attend Varun's rally in big numbers. In fact, interest shown by the Parivar resulted in pulling 20-odd MLAs to the venue, despite the fact that a powerful lobby in the state unit tried its best to play spoiler, it is learnt.

      The second coming of Varun is probably due to a rethink in the Parivar, which sees the MP as the perfect foil to Rahul gandhi.
    • Bhagwat feels roping in young blood could be BJP's best bet. The mindset was in evidence during his Lucknow sojourn as he laid great emphasis on youth participation. Grooming Varun to interface with the public as a youth icon and prepare him for a bigger role in the party, probably as head of the BJP Yuva Morcha, could be a part of the same strategy.
