No crisis, will move forward with Advani's blessings: Sushma Swaraj

New Delhi, June 11 (IANS) Amid worries in the BJP over resignation of L.K.Advani from organisational posts, senior party leader Sushma Swaraj has said that there is no crisis and the party will move forward with the blessings of Advani.

Sushma Swaraj, who is the leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha, tweeted late Monday night that that party was united.

Sushma Swaraj had earlier in the evening taken part in a meeting of the BJP parliamentary board at party president Rajnath Singh's residence here, where the board rejected Advani's resignation.

Advani has resigned from the posts in BJP election committee, and parliamentary board and the party's national executive, a day after the party appointed Gujarat chief minster Narendra Modi as chief of BJP's campaign committee for 2014 elections.

Several party leaders including Sushma Swaraj met Advani through the day Monday to persuade him to withdraw his resignation. Some party leaders also met him after the meeting of the parliamentary board.

Sushma Swaraj is considered close to Advani.

"BJP parliamentary board has rejected the resignation of Advaniji. There is no crisis in BJP."

"We are all united. We are all one. We will move forward with the blessings of Advaniji," Sushma Swaraj said in a tweet.
