BJP President Amit Shah on Thursday met the leaders of the BJP ally in Uttar Pradesh Apna Dal (Sonalal) in the state and listened to their complaints.
After the meeting, Apna Dal (Sonelal) chief Ashish Singh Patel said he had a “positive” meeting with the BJP President but a certain section of BJP leaders is creating “problems.”
Minister of State in the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Anupriya Patel and AD(S) National President Ashish Patel held a meeting with Amit Shah at his Delhi residence. Union minister JP Nadda was also present during the meeting.
“We have put up various issues before the BJP President. Overall, the meeting was positive adding the talks were regarding the problems his party was facing with the BJP’s Uttar Pradesh unit, said Ashish Patel.
Anupriya Patel had last week accused the BJP of “apparently not taking care of its allies” and said that her party was “free to take its own decisions” regarding the upcoming general elections.
While talking to reporters in Bareilly last week, she said “Some differences cropped up between the Apna Dal and the BJP. We had given them time till February 20 to resolve the issues, but there is no answer from the BJP. It appears the saffron party is not interested in taking care of their allies.”
