Arun Jaitley meets Rajnath Singh

Arun JaitleyNew Delhi, Mar 19 : After skipping two key party meetings to express his displeasure over the appointment of Sudhanshu Mittal as party co-convenor for the North East, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Arun Jaitley on Thursday met party President Rajnath Singh.

According to reports, Jaitley went to the Singh's residence here and stayed there for about an hour.

The BJP General Secretary is the party's in-charge for Bihar and Delhi and the name of candidates for these two states could not be finalised as he had skipped the Central Election Committee meeting twice.

Jaitley has maintained that he would not attend the CEC meetings till Mittal's removed.

The BJP President, however, has ruled out revoking his decision to appoint Mittal.

The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) had also intervened to make sure that the Rajnath-Jaitley stalemate does not hurt the party before the Lok Sabha polls. (ANI)
