Bhopal, July 28 (UNI) The Madhya Pradesh BJP has revoked the suspension of senior party leader and former minister Gauri Shankar Shejwar, a close confidante of Bharatiya Jan Shakti President Uma Bharti.

BJP disciplinary committee convenor Kailash Sarang told reporters here today that the decision to lift the suspension was taken after Dr Shejwar's application in this regard was found satisfactory.

Besides, suspension of three party leaders -- Shailendra Sharma, Prem Singh Parihar and Rani Bagri -- and nine other party workers was revoked.

During the monsoon session, Dr Shejwar was found on the government's side during several occasions. He is expected to be inducted into the ministry during cabinet expansion due to take place soon.

A letter regarding lifting of suspension was handed over to Dr Shejwar at the state party headquarters here today.

Dr Shejwar said initiative in this regard came from both sides.

He understood his mistake and the party heard his view.

Expressing pleasure at the decision, he said he felt connected with the BJP internally.

Dr Shejwar was suspended from the party in October 2006 for alleged indiscipline and anti-party activities by supporting Ms Bharti, who was expelled from the party.

Besides Dr Shejwar, four legislators -- Sunil Nayak, Hakam Singh Chadhar, Jalam Singh Patel and Rasal Singh -- were also suspended for making statements in favour of the fiery sanyasin.

Indications are that suspension of Mr Nayak and Mr Patel would be revoked soon.

Suspension of another party leader Kailash Sharma, also a supporter of Ms Bharti, was also revoked. Mr Sharma, who was one of the close advisors of Ms Bharti, was made the Chairman of the Employment Board. Mr Sharma is son of BJP MP Lakshmikant Sharma.
