Bengaluru: For years, leaders of the state unit of BJP would queue up to seek the blessings of party patriarch L K Advani on his arrival, but none of the senior leaders showed up to receive him at Kempe Gowda International Airport, on Friday.

On arrival, he was received by former ministers B Ramachandra Gowda and Aravind Limbavali. Later, state unit president B S Yeddyurappa and Union minister D V Sadananda Gowda called on him at a private hotel. Mr. Advani arrived in the city to offer condolences to the kin of RSS leader Gopinath. Mr. Gopinath, an old friend of the veteran leader, was imprisoned in the central prison here during emergency, and kept the leader’s company till their release.
