Eyeing Lok Sabha elections, the faction-ridden district BJP unit is making an effort to put up a united face, at least at the party office.


District BJP chief Naresh Sharma has urged all its top leaders from Amritsar including cabinet minister Anil Joshi, CPS Dr Navjot Kaur Sidhu, vice-president Rajinder Mohan Singh Chinna and state general secretary Tarun Chugh to remain present at the party office at least once a week.

On Saturday, CPS Dr Sidhu along with her supporters and some close aides of cabinet minister Anil Joshi were seen at the local party office hearing the grievances of the workers.

Naresh Sharma, who had played a pivotal role in arranging a meeting between Joshi and Dr Sidhu said, "Definitely it is very important for the local leaders to be present at the party office and listen to the workers. It will strengthen the party more and also streamline things before the polls."

Sharma also stressed that the party was together on the issue of MP Navjot Singh Sidhu and will accord him a warm welcome.

Replying to a query, he said, "We cannot say there is any division among local leaders, but certainly we cannot deny that there are certain misunderstandings that need to be sorted out."
