BJP's situation volcanic: Sushma

bhopal Updated: Jun 15, 2009 15:26 IST

Steering clear of the infighting in BJP, senior leader Sushma Swaraj has described the situation in the party as "volcanic".

"The situation in the party is volcanic. When there is a volcano, even a small spark can flare it further," she said on Sunday, on her way to her Vidisha Lok Sabha constituency.

The BJP leader, however, refrained from saying anything further.

Swaraj, who has been appointed deputy leader of BJP in the Lok Sabha, said in her view there was nothing wrong in LK Advani continuing as the Leader of the Opposition in the House as he was NDA's prime ministerial candidate in the general elections.

Her comments come at a time when knives are out in the party, on its drubbing in the just-concluded parliamentary elections.
