Sushma Swaraj, others meet 'upset' Advani
Sunday September 15, 2013 6:20 AM, IANS

BJP leader Sushma Swaraj, who Saturday met party patriarch L.K. Advani in an apparent bid to mollify him following the party's decision to name Narendra Modi as its prime ministerial candidate for the 2014 general elections, said that no one was upset.

"No one is upset," Sushma Swaraj, the leader of opposition in the Lok Sabha, told reporters after the meeting.

She along with party leaders Balbir Punj and Ananth Kumar met Advani at his residence here.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had Friday anointed Modi, the Gujarat chief minister, as prime ministerial candidate at the parliamentary board meeting.

Advani did not attend the meeting and had written a scathing letter to BJP president Rajnath Singh expressing disappointment over his style of functioning. He had also talked about "anguish in his heart" in the letter.

Party sources said Advani has been of the opinion that a decision on prime ministerial candidate should be taken after assembly polls to five states later this year.

Modi had visited Advani after announcement of his elevation as prime ministerial candidate.
