BJP leaders Sushma Swaraj, Ananth Kumar and Balbir Punj today met a sulking L K Advani to discuss the elevation of Narendra Modi as Prime Ministerial candidate, a move the party patriarch is opposed to.

Irked over Modi being made the Prime Ministerial candidate, Advani had written a scathing letter to BJP President Rajnath Singh expressing disappointment over his style of functioning.

Sources said the issue was discussed by Swaraj, Kumar and Punj with Advani who is still unhappy with the decision on Modi.

However, when Swaraj was asked about Advani's stand after the meeting, she said, "Nobody is upset."

She denied that Advani's letter to Singh was discussed.

Soon after the Parliamentary Board anointed him as the Prime Ministerial candidate, Modi had visited Advani and spent around 30 minutes with him. This was after Advani had written to Singh.

Interestingly, though Advani wrote the letter in the wake of Modi's elevation as PM candidate, he attacked Rajnath Singh and chose not to mention the Gujarat Chief Minister.
