Patna, Feb 02 (UNI) The dissidence among BJP Legislators over inordinate delay in expansion of the Nitish Kumar Ministry came to fore during the BJP Legislative party meeting here today.
Party sources said here that senior party leaders and MLAs - Bhola Singh, Giriraj Singh, Rampravesh Rai and Pramod Kumar - vehemently raised the issue and lamented that delay in the expansion of the Ministry was sending a wrong message to party cadres and it should be expanded without any further delay.
'' The apprehension that there could be a rift in the party over expansion of the ministry has no basis and it should not be delayed on one pretext or the other, '' they observed.
In-charge of the party affairs of Bihar Kalraj Mishra tried to pacify the MLAs by making a point that there were several limitations and obligations of the coaltion Ministry and hiccups on the issue would be removed soon.
