A state level coordination committee, consisting of senior leaders of both parties, will be constituted soon. With an eye on the next General Election, the BJP and SAD want to smoothen their relationship through better coordination in Punjab.
A state level coordination committee, consisting of senior leaders of both parties, will be constituted soon. Similar committees will be constituted for each of the 13 Lok Sabha segments.
Sources said there was no formal mechanism to address the differences between the two parties. A top leader of SAD said here on Wednesday that the committees would be constituted by the end of next month. The Monsoon Sessions of Parliament and Punjab Assembly would be over by then. The issue of better coordination between the two parties has been discussed between BJP president Amit Shah and former state Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal.
The relationship between the two parties is better placed especially after SAD lent support to the government during the recent no-confidence motion against it in the Lok Sabha. It is also standing with the BJP with regard to the election of Rajya Sabha Deputy Chairperson, scheduled for Thursday.
