PM should worry about drought, price rise not us: BJP

india Updated: Aug 30, 2009 21:10 IST

A day after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh commented about the problems within BJP, the party on Sunday expressed its ire saying instead of worrying about it he should concentrate on tackling drought and price rise even as party president Rajnath Singh wrote a letter to him on the twin issues affecting the country.

"The Prime Minister is worried about the BJP. We have told him to worry about price rise and drought and give relief to the people. We will worry about the BJP, you worry about the people and if you don't then we will compel you to do it through agitations," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said.

On Saturday, Singh commented in Ramsar, about 60 km from Barmer, that there should be stability in all parties.

"It (infighting in BJP) is not good. In a democracy, stability in political parties is necessary. If there is instability, it will have an impact on the country," he said when asked about the crisis in BJP.

Meanwhile, Rajnath Singh on Sunday wrote a letter to the Prime Minister demanding setting up of a National Task Force on adaptation to climate change and sustainable agriculture in the wake of the prevailing drought in the country.

"A determined national alliance and action by all stakeholders, including the government, policy planners, scientists, civil society, and, of course, the farmers, is a must to blunt the disaster," the BJP president said in his letter.
