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.

Senior party leaders said in Delhi, "We will talk to him. These comments must be made by him in his personal capacity. This is not the party's stand.," Same it was what Union minister Prakash Javadekar told reporters in Mumbai on Sunday.

Assam BJP unit also refused to endorse Dr Swamy. “But these comments would benefit Congress in the next assembly polls. It would help Congress woo the minorities,” said the party leaders in Assam.
