No one is upset, Sushma says after meeting Advani

New Delhi: BJP leaders Sushma Swaraj, Ananth Kumar and Balbir Punj on Saturday met LK Advani,in a bid to pacify the party patriarch, who is sulking after the elevation of Narendra Modi as party's prime ministerial candidate.

Irked over party's decision on Narendra Modi, Advani had on Friday written a scathing letter to BJP president Rajnath Singh expressing disappointment over his style of functioning.

Sources said the issue was discussed by Swaraj, Kumar and Punj with Advani who is still unhappy with the decision on Modi.

However, when Swaraj was asked about Advani's stand after the meeting, she said, "Nobody is upset."

She denied that Advani's letter to Singh was discussed.

Soon after the parliamentary board anointed him the prime ministerial candidate, Modi had visited Advani and spent around 30 minutes with him. This was after Advani had written to Singh.

Interestingly, though Advani wrote the letter in the wake of Modi's elevation as PM candidate, he attacked Rajnath Singh and chose not to mention the Gujarat chief minister.
