Though senior BJP leaders, including former Union minister Jaswant Singh and his son former MP Manvendra Singh, rallied behind state BJP president Vasundhara Raje during her Suraj Yatra in the desert region, factionalism at the local level is a cause for concern for the party.
Sources said the saffron leaders have reason to smile because Ms Raje and former external affairs minister Jaswant Singh have joined hands and showcased unity. But rivalry among local leaders eyeing tickets for the Assembly polls is worrying the party.
The sources said factionalism surfaced in Barmer when the rival groups engaged in fighting. In Barmer, local BJP leaders Kailash Beniwal and Mridurekha Choudhary circulated pamphlets against former minister and Jat stalwart Gangaram Choudhary.
and his granddaughter Priyanka during the yatra. According to the sources, Priyanka has emerged as a potential candidate from Barmer seat but Ms Choudhary opposed her name.
