I am not upset with the party, says Sushma Swaraj as BJP holds parleys ahead of vote counting

Senior BJP Leader Sushma Swaraj on Wednesday said that she was not upset with the party as some media reports suggested.

Swaraj, who arrived in Bhopal amid reports that she was sulking, told reporters that “it is not true that I am annoyed or the party leaders are mollifying me on any issue.”

BJP president Rajnath Singh and senior leader Nitin Gadkari visited Swaraj at her residence in Delhi earlier in the day, leading to the speculation that she was not happy with the party over talks of government-formation and her possible role as exit polls have predicted a clear majority for NDA.

She said that it was only a courtesy call by Gadkari and Singh.

Swaraj contested the Lok Sabha election from Vidisha in Madhya Pradesh this time where she had won in 2009 with a big margin.
