Jaipur: The BJP top brass has taken note of the dissent within the state unit in Rajasthan, sources told Times Now.

'Dissent' by Vasundhara Raje faction. Top leadership has taken note: Sources. Arvind with details pic.twitter.com/CL6LRpq8cm"I have not seen the contents of the letter. We would talk about it in the party. This may be a big issue for the media but not for the party. We have only one group and one party and that is BJP... instead of collectively writing the letter, those who might have any issues should have talked within the party on an individual level," Arun Singh said after the state BJP core committee meeting which was attended by Raje. Interestingly, she had skipped the earlier meeting of the core committee, triggering speculation over her differences. Meanwhile, the BJP is slated to hold an agitation against the Congress government between March 6-14. BJP president JP Nadda will address the party's state executive meeting in Jaipur on March 2, Singh further said.All should work together and should focus on throwing the Congress government, which has failed on all fronts, out of power. I would say to all the party workers that this should be our broader vision," Singh said while expressing confidence that the party will win all the forthcoming elections in West Bengal and by-polls in four assembly seats in Rajasthan. He also expressed confidence in the leadership of Poonia as the state party chief, thus silencing the reports of likely dissent within the BJP.
