Will BJP endorse Dr Swamy?

Caught in a damaging debate over Dr Subramaniam Swamy’s comments on masjids and churches BJP bosses will ask the party ideologue to clear his position.  

The ruling party at the Centre has already distanced itself from the comments saying they were made in his personal capacity.
