The statement made by Nitin Gadkari that if L.K. Advani is made the President of India it matches his status and stature is a welcome expression as it truly does justice to the octogenarian leader who has many a services and sacrifices to his credit in the interest of the country. There was a talk earlier that he should have been offered some senior position in the cabinet of ministers, that he should have been made the Loksabha Speaker or that he should have been given the charge as Dy. Chairman of the Planning Commission. All these positions in fact didn’t match his stature as he already held the post of Dy. Prime Minister of the country when Atal Bihari Vajpai was the Prime Minister of India and offering him any position below that in rank could have meant only something too secondary. He belongs to BJP but his is a giant sized stature at the national level warranting a consideration in that spirit away from political demarcations. No doubt he is in the wrong side of his age but he is the one who has been able to keep his stamina to work fully intact and is by all means capable enough to discharge his responsibilities with efficiency and integrity.
