Sushma Swaraj : No one is upset, party not divided

BJP leaders continue to convince Advani
New Delhi, Sept 14: A day after the BJP made the big announcement, efforts were on from senior BJP leaders to pacify LK Advani, who had missed the party meeting on Friday.

Senior BJP leaders Sushma Swaraj and Ananth Kumar on Saturday met Advani at his residence.

Post the meeting Swaraj told the reporters that 'There is no division within the party. No one is upset.'

Advani along with Murali Manohar Joshi and Sushma Swaraj had earlier shown their dissent against Narendra Modi being named the BJP's prime ministerial candidate.

But on Friday after Ananth Kumar and Nitin Gadkari met Swaraj, the latter finally gave in and said that they were with the party. Even Joshi, showed his support towards the decision.

Even after the big announcement, Advani remained adamant and refused to budge from his decision.

Meanwhile Congress continued to take a dig at Narendra Modi. Digvijay Singh continued to take potshots at Modi saying that, "BJP faltered in front of the RSS and succumbed to the threats given by RSS."

Nitish Kumar too didnt back from making remarks saying that, this was bound to happen. "Hence the reason why we broke alliance with the party," he said.
