Sriramulu re-induction: Arun Jaitley criticises Sushma Swaraj
Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Arun Jaitley on Saturday indirectly criticised party leader Sushma Swaraj for voicing out her opposition on the re-induction of BSR Congress leader B Sriramulu into the party.
"We must all entirely concentrate on these issues (anti-incumbency issues) and the ability of a (Narendra) Modi led government providing a solution to these concerns. Relatively marginal issues such as declaration of candidates particularly who is in and who is out cannot be allowed to dominate the political agenda in the BJP. These issues divert the attention from the core issues of governance," Jaitley wrote in his blog.
Jaitley wrote the remarks on his blog after Swaraj on Friday said BSR Congress Chief B Sriramulu was inducted in the party despite her 'stiff opposition'.
"I want to make it absolutely clear that B.Sriramulu has been admitted in the party despite my stiff opposition," Swaraj tweeted.
Sriramulu returned to the BJP on Friday.
He had earlier left the BJP to form his own party the BSR Congress.
