New Delhi: The BJP seems to be facing dearth of able leadership in the states in run up to the Lok Sabha and assembly polls. The party high command feels that it has failed to groom second and third rung leaders for the state units.

In a brainstorming meeting on Tuesday, senior leaders of BJP and RSS expressed concerns over the issue. They will make all out efforts in putting the house in order before the 2014 general elections.

Dialogue has been initiated within the Sangh Parivar. In this context, leaders of BJP, RSS and VHP held meeting to devise joint strategy.

BJP ruled states are facing huge crisis of competent leaders who can sail through Lok Sabha and assembly polls. In Jharkhand, state BJP chief Dineshanand Goswami himself lost the Jamshedpur Lok Sabha by-election vacated by former Chief Minister Arjun Munda in 2011.

In Madhya Pradesh, Narendra Singh Tomar replaced Prabhat Jha as the state BJP chief, while the saffron party has pinned hope on Vasundhara Raje to win Rajasthan assembly polls. The BJP is preparing roadmap for each state.
