BJP not averse to seeking rebels'' support: Dhumal
Shimla, Nov 19 (PTI) The Himachal BJP today said it was not averse to seeking support of party rebels for forming a stable government in the state.
Though the party was all set to secure two-thirds majority in the assembly election, it was not averse to seeking support of rebels for forming a stable government, Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal said here.
There were more than half-dozen party rebels who could win, he said.
"The BJP is talking about forming the government again in the state while the Congress, fearing defeat, is indulging in blame game and is targeting its own leaders," Dhumal said.
A marathon meeting of the state BJP executive and party candidates who fought the November four assembly election was held here today, he said.
Barring a few candidates who said the contest was tough, all others were confident of their victory, the Chief Minister said.
There was no doubt the "mission repeat" of the BJP would be accomplished, he said.
Dhumal took exception to frisking of his vehicle twice during the electioneering and said it was unheard of.
