New Delhi: Amid hectic efforts to convince LK Advani to give up his opposition to Narendra Modi as Prime Ministerial candidate, BJP president Rajnath Singh on Thursday said there was no rift in the party over the issue.
“There is no problem...I want to say,” Singh said here when asked whether there is any hitch in declaring Modi as BJP Prime Ministerial candidate.
Singh had a 30-minute meeting with Advani on Wednesday to persuade him on Modi's candidature but failed to get an assurance, sources said.
Asked when the parliamentary party meeting will take place, Singh said, “It will be conveyed to you. It will be announced.”
When asked repeatedly whether there is any unhappiness in the party over Modi issue, he said, “No one is unhappy in the party.”
