PATNA: After much wheeling and dealing, president of the Bharatiya Janata Party's Bihar unit C.P. Thakur took back his resignation late on Saturday following a meeting with the party's national president, Nitin Gadkari, in Nagpur.
According to sources, Mr. Thakur appears to have gotten his way after the meeting with Mr. Gadkari as there were definite indications of his son Vivek Thakur being made a legislator in the Bihar Council.
In a jolt to the BJP just ahead of the polls, Dr. Thakur had quit his party post on Friday after complaining of an “undemocratic attitude prevailing within the party,” though in reality he was said to be upset over his son being denied ticket from the Bankipur constituency.
Earlier — as part of the seat-sharing arrangement with their alliance partner, the Janata Dal (United) — the BJP traded the Digha constituency to the JD(U) in exchange for Aurai, Gaighatti and Hayaghat, a move which caused considerable resentment among BJP workers.
