After a meeting with BJP president JP Nadda in New Delhi, disgruntled MP Arjun Singh on Tuesday said that he has briefed him about the state of affairs in the party’s West Bengal unit and now the ball is now in the court of the central leaders. 

Singh was summoned by the BJP top brass after he voiced his reservations against the way of functioning of the party’s state unit. 

He had earlier alleged that leaders having no touch with ground-level workers and active only on social media are getting prominence in the state BJP.

"The ball is now in their (central leaders) court. Nadda-ji said he will take necessary action," the state BJP vice-president told PTI over the phone.

Asked if he is happy after the meeting, Singh said, “It is not a question of being happy or unhappy. I am waiting (for redressal of his grievances).”

At the meeting held on Monday, the central leaders sought from Singh a written report on the issues he had raised and he complied with it.

Before leaving for Delhi on Monday, he had claimed that he was made a vice-president of the state BJP with no real power.

The MP of Barrackpore, an industrial area, has of late been critical also of the Centre’s policy towards the jute sector which is in crisis over the prices of raw materials.

Singh had left the Trinamool Congress and joined the saffron party ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
