Modi’s influence is seen to be widespread throughout the country. The membership is also above 10 crore. And single handed authority is also visible. BJP leaders say there is no looking back for the party. That is what new entrants into the party were of the opinion. But there is a talk that old guards in the party were seen to be uncontrolled and unmanageable. Some of them left the party before the elections while some more were said to be planning to desert the party now. Two district level leaders have already left the party while some State level leaders were ready to quit the saffron party.
Rift between the old and new leaders in the party seems to be the reason for the exit of party men. Name of Nagam Janardhan Reddy, former TDP minister, is prominently heard for leaving the party. He is said to have held press meetings separately instead of meeting media persons in the party office. This is said to be the main reason for dissent in the party. However, Nagam denied such allegations. There were also allegations that party seniors were ignoring when some leaders were trying to say good bye to the party. BJP made clear that there was good future for leaders if only they stick to the party rules and regulations. Though it was claimed that the saffron party would emerge powerful by next elections, there was no relation between what they said and the practical activity. There was also a talk that there would be no change among the leaders even if the party president personally addressed them to follow discipline.
