Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, whose elevation as BJP Campaign Committee Chairman triggered the crisis, within 30 seconds of the crisis blowing over, tweeted, "I had said yesterday that Advaniji will not disappoint lakhs of karyakartas.

Again during the recent political crisis, when the BJP National Executive was in session, media-savvy leaders were sending out SMSes to journalists, providing latest updates on the proceedings in the conclave.
