Botyov departed from the correct revolutionary positions of BRCK and its chairman L. Karavelov; Hr. Botyov questioned the usefulness of spreading knowledge among his countrymen; led a policy of separatism in the revolutionary organization; supported smear campaign against the chairman of BRCK and sought to remove him and take his leading position, etc.
