`Lack of coordination a cause of Munde resentment`
Mumbai: BJP national secretary Kirit Sommaiya on Friday said that senior leader Gopinath Munde`s unhappiness over being sidelined could have been caused by the
lack of co-ordination within the party.
"Mundeji is a senior party leader and even though he
was elected to the Lok Sabha for the first time, he was made
the Deputy leader of BJP in the lower house of the
Parliament," Sommaiya said, talking to reporters here.
"There could be a lack of coordination," he said, when
asked what could have caused his resentment.
When asked whether this situation indicated that BJP had
given up the slogan `Nation first, Party next, Self last`,
Sommaiya said, "I don`t think so."
When asked why the party did not persuade Swami
Nigamanand -- who died while on a hunger strike against
mining in the Ganga riverbed -- to give up the fast, Sommaiya
said the Uttarakhand government tried its best in this regard.
"Using force would not have been correct," Sommaiya said.
