Though the district unit of the BJP has been insisting on contesting the ensuing municipal committee elections on its own, yet the party's state president Kamal Sharma said here on Wednesday that there are no differences in the SAD-BJP alliance and both parties would fight the elections together.
"There are no differences in the combine, even then if some leaders have differences, we will sort them out before the elections," said Kamal Sharma, while talking to mediapersons here on the sidelines of the party workers' meeting here.
He said that one district-level leader, each from BJP and SAD, will be deputed to resolve the differences, if any, and if they failed to resolve them, the issue will be taken up with senior leaders of both the parties.
He, however, refused to answer a question about SAD secretary and Punjab education minister Daljit Singh Cheema's complaint lodged with Sharma over the comments made by former MP Navjot Singh Sidhu in Ludhiana, on Sunday, against the coalition government in the state, saying, "Sidhu is our national leader, we have already informed the party high command about the complaint now the decision will be taken by the party high command."
About the party's membership drive, Sharma said that till date about 4 lakh people have joined the party via SMS registration and the party was hopeful of achieving the set target of 15 lakh registered members soon.
Holding the meeting of party workers from Sangrur I, Sangrur II (Sunam), Barnala and Mansa, Kamal Sharma asked them to strengthen the party cadre at the grassroots level.
