New Delhi, Aug.30 (ANI): Congress party on Sunday termed the internal crisis in the main opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as "unfortunate."

Expressing concern over the crisis in the BJP, senior Congress leader Satyavrat Chaturvedi said BJP should be stable, so as to fulfil its duties as the country's main opposition party.

"I would call it (the crisis in Bharatiya Janata Party) unfortunate, that the main opposition party of the country is undergoing such a political and internal crisis. This is not good for the democracy of the country. We may benefit out of the crisis in our rival party but country's main opposition must be stable, strong and fulfil its duties efficiently," Chaturvedi said.

BJP leaders have been holding hectic parleys with Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) following the crisis in the party which triggered after the expulsion of senior leader Jaswant Singh for writing a book on Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan.

Meanwhile, earlier the BJP President Rajnath Singh has asked Prime Minister Manmohan Singh not to worry about the developments in his party.

Rajnath Singh comment came in response to Saturday statement by Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh in which he said: "The situation in the BJP is not good...it is BJP's internal matter but stability in political parties is most necessary in a democracy, otherwise, it will have an impact on the country."

BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar informed the media on Sunday that Rajnath had written a letter to Singh in this regard.

" Rather than worrying about he development in the BJP, we urge you to concentrate on the developmental work. The farmers of the country are suffering from the drought. Constitute a Task Force to tackle the drought situation. Take immediate steps to tackle price rise," Javadekar quoted Rajnath's letter, as saying. (ANI)
