Senior BJP leaders gathered haryana to attend a workshop regarding the completion of the proposed 'statue of unity' to be dedicated to India's 'Iron Man' Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel on the banks of the Narmada in Gujarat.

The state unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) dismissed, that their is no potential political threat from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) during the Haryana elections.

BJP's state president Ram Bilas Sharma said that though the AAP has excelled in Delhi assembly elections, but he does not see any competition from the new outfit.

“Arvind Kejriwal and his team of AAP activists performed well in delhi elections due to the social movement started by Anna Hazare. They picked up a few issues effectively and won the election, but the political ground of Haryana is altogether different and the BJP-Haryana Janhit Congress (HJC) combine will sweep assembly and parliamentary elections of the state,” said Sharma.

On the issue of formation of government in Delhi, no party has attained majority, Sharma said while adding that the Congress should support the AAP.

Gujarat education minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama, who was also present on the occasion, urged the citizens to cooperate in the work to make India a powerful, prosperous and united force in the world.

He even added that he had also met Hooda, Punjab chief minister PS Badal and governors of Punjab and Haryana to seek their cooperation for the construction of 'statue of unity'.
