NEW DELHI, FEB. 28. The Bharatiya Janata Party president, Jana Krishnamurthi, and two senior leaders _ the former president, Kushbhau Thakre, and the general secretary, Sanjay Joshi _ are leaving for the riot-torn Gujarat tomorrow to hold urgent consultations with the Chief Minister, Narendra Modi, on how best to tackle the communal situation.
Earlier, party sources indicated that the BJP had from the start dissociated itself from the Vishwa Hindu Parishad's plan to gather `Ram bhakts' in Ayodhya and was against the building of a temple there in contravention of the Supreme Court's orders. Naturally, BJP members are not expected to take part in the VHP's programme.
But the party declined to say anything on what action it would take against BJP MPs who have been in the forefront of VHP activities. Till now the party's stand was that its MPs are free to associate themselves with the VHP at the ``personal level''. The plea was that the BJP cannot stop its MPs or members from participating in any `yagya' or any religious activity.
