The BJP veterans LK Advani and Murali Manohar Joshi were dropped from the party's highest decision making body, Parliamentary Board. BJP National President Amit Shah is the new chairman of the new elite decision making body while 12 top leaders were added to the list which includes Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
The two senior leaders will be a part of the BJP's 'marg darshak mandal' or mentors. In fact sources said that BJP leadership is not quite happy keeping the two senior most leaders in Board and wants to make way for fresh leaders. Advani and MM Joshi were axed only on the basis of their age who are 75 years above.
