The agitations against Gupta by Sattan and some other leaders including Usha Thakur and Dr Uma Shashi Sharma had been talk of town. Usha, however ceased her protest after getting party ticket from Indore- III, but Sattan’s was still displeased. Several efforts of the ‘ Tai’ camp to pacify Sattan had failed previously.
The recent turn of events in the Congress, which replaced its candidate Golu Agnihotri with Deepu adav ( son of ex- MLA Ramlal adav), shocked the BJP. Hence, Mahajan herself took the responsibility to meet Sattan and asked him to support Gupta for the party’s sake. It is believed that the two also had a heated exchange on certain issues. However, the party sources claim that Sattan will announce his support for Gupta soon. It is worth mentioning that the displeased senior leader had been absent from all of Gupta’s promotion campaigns.
