There were no differences within the party with regard to the election campaign in Uttar Pradesh, senior BJP leader L K Advani said in state capital Gandhinagar on Tuesday.

Advani was here to attend a meeting of the vigilance and monitoring committee of Gandhinagar parliamentary constituency, headed by him as the local MP.

"There are no differences within the party with regard to the election campaign in Uttar Pradesh. Everybody is going (there) as per own convenience," Advani said, when asked whether there were any issues because of which Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi was not campaigning in the key northern state.

"We have many campaigners. And we are optimistic about it (campaign)," Advani said.

He said he himself would be campaigning in Uttar Pradesh from February 4.

Advani also opposed the religion-based reservations proposed by the UPA government. "Religion-based reservation is against the constitution and had been formally rejected by the constituent assembly," he said.

Narendra Modi skipped campaigning for the party in Punjab and Uttrakhand, where the elections were held yesterday. He is reportedly not happy with the party over re-induction of his arch-rival, Sanjay Joshi.
