'BJP should discuss Yashwant, Jaswant, Shourie's points'

July 01, 2009 18:18 IST
With raging dissent in Bharatiya Janata Party coming out in the open, a senior party Member of Parliament on Wednesday said that the points raised by veterans like Yashwant Sinha, Arun Shourie and Jaswant Singh should be given due importance.

"They have been with BJP since its inception and hence the party leadership should seriously deliberate on the points raised by them," film star-turned-politician Shatrughan Sinha told PTI.

The three leaders had attacked the party leadership for not taking responsibility for BJP's debacle in the general elections, and opened the can of worms by airing their views in the media while analysing the defeat.

Sinha said all is not well within the party where some leaders have been divulging to the media matters transpiring inside the party.

He said there were some leaders whose dreams have been shattered after the party's poor performance in the Lok Sabha polls, and they were leaking matters raised at the party fora to the media.

"Leakage of matters raised inside the party reflects that all is not well within the organisation," the MP from Patna Sahib Lok Sabha constituency in Bihar said.

On who will succeed Leader of Opposition L K Advani, Sinha said, "It can be anyone. May be even me. But Advani is not leaving. He is acceptable to all workers and will be leading the party."
