Bhopal: Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Lok Sabha speaker Sumitra Mahajan, affectionately called ‘Tai’ by her colleagues, has joined the “elite club” leaders of the party in Madhya Pradesh, sulking over being “overlooked” by the high command in selection of candidates for the November 28 Assembly elections in the state.

Union minister and chairman of the campaign committee of the party in Madhya Pradesh  Narendra Singh Tomar along with in-charge of the party in the state Vinoy Sahashtrabuddhe met Ms Mahajan at her residence in Indore late on Monday evening apparently to resolve differences over her demand to nominate her son Mandar for Indore -3 Assembly constituency.

BJP national general secretary Kailash Vijayva-rgiya, a party heavyweight, has sought to launch his son Akash in the coming Assembly polls and wanted the party to field him in Indore-2 Assembly seat.

His close aide Ramesh Mandola was currently representing Indore-2 seat. Mr Vijavargiya wanted Mr Mandola to be shifted to Indore-3 to accommodate his son in Indore-2.

This led to differences between Mr Vijayvargiya and Ms Mahajan, party sources said.
