A SECTION of state BJP office-bearers on Wednesday sought action against the party MLAs, who continued to be loyal to Bhartiya Janshakti president Uma Bharti.
The demand has come apparently in the wake of Dr Gaurishankar Shejwar's visit to Sagar to find about an encounter in which one Bhagwandas Lodhi was killed. The Bharatiya Janshakti has taken up the issue to corner the State Government, saying that the encounter was a fake one.
The demand was raised at the office-bearers meeting, which was attended by State party affairs-in-charge Ananth Kumar and Chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan. The demand came up when Ananth Kumar sought to know about any discontent in the party on any issue.
The meeting devoted most of its time discussing the political resolution to be taken up at the State BJP executive meet on Thursday. Ananth Kumar is understood to have suggested certain changes in the draft. The draft, said the BJP sources, includes a demand from the party to enhance women's share in power in civic bodies up to 50 per cent.
It also highlights State Government's achievements and the Centre's alleged double standard in relief package to the states. Congress has also been slammed in the draft for ' politicising the Ujjain incident, the sources said.Vidisha Lok Sabha constituency party affairs-in-charge Anil Dave and Bada Malehra state assembly party affairs-in-charge Arvind Bhadoria apprised the meeting about the workers' meetings in the constituencies and those of leaders, including Shivraj Singh Chouhan's there.
State BJP president Satynarayan Jatia told newsmen later that the meeting expressed satisfaction over the organisational election and the State Government's performance. In reply to a question he said the party did not conduct any survey in Vidisha Lok Sabha constituency to know about the electorate choice about the party's candidate.
He said the party felt that the government needed to do more for the weaker section of society particularly the SC/ST people.
