Nagpur: BJP president Rajnath Singh on Wednesday denied having made any adverse comments against Mohan Bhagwat while reacting to the RSS chief's remark yesterday that the saffron party needed "a surgery or chemotherapy", saying he was a 'Swayamsewak' first.

"It pained me when I saw (reports attributed to him) on TV last night and in newspapers today which said I have reacted to Bhagwat's statement," Singh told reporters.

Singh, who was here to felicitate the newly-elected BJP MLAs, said there was no question of his having questioned whatever Bhagwat had said "since I am a Swayamsewak first."

"The so called secular forces are trying to divide the Sangh Parivar, but will never succeed in their evil designs," he said.

He parried a question about RSS boss' statement made at a press conference at Jaipur yesterday where he suggested that the BJP, plagued by leadership issues, dissension and poll debacles, needed a "surgery or chemotherapy".

The BJP president said whenever needed, the party would consult the RSS leadership.

Some media reports had said that while reacting to Bhagwat's remark, the BJP president had said, "our morale is high. Whoever has said this (that BJP needs surgery) has gone mad."
