NEW DELHI, March 9 � The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) central leadership in its latest bid to placate its sulking MPs held a meeting to sort out the differences over ticket distribution.
The meeting that started at around 7.30 pm at national president, Nitin Gadkari�s house was attended by Rajen Gohain, Ramen Deka, Bijoya Chakravarty and Kabindra Purkayastha, besides State in-charge Vijay Goel and State president Ranjit Dutta and other senior leaders of the party.
The MPs were peeved at the manner in which the candidates were selected by the State leadership and laid the blame squarely on Ranjit Dutta. On the other hand, Dutta�s camp claimed that the MPs were upset because the candidates suggested by them were not given nomination.
Meanwhile, the BJP�s Central Election Committee is meeting on Thursday morning to finalise the list of candidates for the rest of the 60 Assembly constituencies. The party has already cleared a list of 54 candidates, while six of its sitting MLAs was cleared earlier.
