As a part of his mission to rebrand BJP he used a pro-Hindu agenda. The Ram Janm Bhoomi Andolan and Rath Yatra in the 1990s were a part of his mission.
When upon Mandal Commision's recommendation, led by V. P. Singh, the Government allowed for a 25 percent reservation for the OBC's in Government jobs, Advani used the political unrest in the country to capture the vote banks comprising mainly of Hindus.
However the resulting communal violence in the country following the Rath Yatra, drew the ire of many. Advani who began his procession from Somnath was arrested in Samastipur by RJD leader Lalu Prasad Yadav before the Rath could reach Ayodhya.
Despite being at the forefront of the party, Advani put forth the name of Atal Bihari Vajpayee for the Prime Ministerial candidate in 1995. He cited that Vajpayee was a more seasoned politician to handle matters at the center and also that he did not want to hinder the judicial proceedings in the Hawala case and Babri Masjid Demolition case against him. With BJP in power, Advani held many important portfolios including that of Deputy-PM.
