No factionalism in BJP: Khanduri

Kotdwara: Uttarakhand Chief Minister B C Khanduri today dismissed reports of factionalism in the BJP and claimed that initial anger of those who were denied party tickets had subsided.

"There is no factionalism in the party, and initial anger of those denied party ticket has subsided. Everybody in the party is working for the win of BJP candidates," Khanduri told reporters at his home constituency here.

He asked BJP workers to work selflessly for the party and the hill state.

For the first time since his candidature was declared for the Assembly seat by BJP, Khanduri visited the constituency where he was greeted by a huge crowd of supporters.

He will submit his election nomination papers on January 9 at Pauri Garhwal.
