New Delhi, Nov 7 (UNI) Two days after she had quit the BJP in protest against selection of party candidates for the November 29 Assembly polls, Poonam Azad today withdrew her resignation following assurances from the party leadership to address the issues raised by her.

The withdrawal of resignation came after BJP leader and party's nominee from the prestigious New Delhi seat Vijay Jolly had a meeting with Ms Azad last night and assured her that the top leadership of the party would address the issues raised by her.

''I had a three-hour-long meeting with Mr Jolly where he urged me not to quit the party and assured me that the senior leadership would address the issues raised by me. So, I have decided to take back my resignation from the party,'' Ms Azad said.

Ms Azad had resigned from the party in protest against the second list of candidates for the polls to the Delhi Legislative Assembly released on November five.

Party sources said she protested after her request to get nominated from Patparganj Assembly segment was ignored and Nakul Bhardwaj was nominated for the seme.

Talking to newspersons here this evening, Mr Jolly said following the turn of events on November five which led to the resignation, he had held talks with party president Rajnath Singh, general secretary Arun Jaitley and its Chief Ministerial candidate for Delhi Vijay Kumar Malhotra who promised to address the issues.

Claiming that she was withdrawing her resignation unconditionally, Ms Azad said, ''it is enough for me that the party has listened to my grievances.'' UNI AR GL PK BD1900
