RAIPUR: During the two-day state executive committee meeting of the ruling BJP at Korba in Chhattisgarh, the party’s national general secretary Saroj Pandey ruffled a few feathers with her remark over the party’s leadership in the next election.

When asked by the media under whose leadership the party would go ahead in the 2018 assembly polls, Pandey ignored the present leadership and said that it was for the BJP parliamentary board to decide. “The state’s leadership issue is decided by the parliamentary board. It’s not my subject,” she stated.

With several state ministers surprised over the statement given by Pandey, the BJP state president Dharamlal Kaushik clarified saying that the party would fight the next election only under the leadership of Raman Singh in Chhattisgarh.

The state leadership of BJP had come together in the industrial town of Korba to work out the party’s ‘Mission -2018’ strategy and chalk-out the strategy of functioning on a day-to-day basis.

Chief minister Raman Singh retorted in the Korba meet that the concern should be rather to ensure the next chief minister was from BJP.
