charges of corruption against Patel, Minister for Transport,
who is minister-in-charge of Gopalganj.
"We will not tolerate indiscipline at any level in the
party... it is a serious matter", he said adding the MLAs
should have raised any such matter within the party instead of
rushing to media.
"We will look into the matter and then take action",
Modi said in reply to a question. People should think thrice
before raising fingers against the leaders of senior NDA
State BJP president CP Thakur said he had called the
three MLAs to Patna for clarifying their position. "I don`t
think there is anything serious in it", he said.
