State BJP leaders, led by party's Punjab affairs in-charge Shanta Kumar on Wednesday met Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal here to discuss the fact-finding committee report, made by senior BJP leader Balramji Dass Tandon on the results of the Lok Sabha polls in the state.
    
"The constitution of the six-member committee will be finalized soon by the two parties," Kumar told reporters.

"We had a long meeting with Chief Minister Badal and we kept all issues before him. He agreed that we need to have an in-depth analysis into all the issues," he said.

"For this, a six-member Committee, three members from each side, will go into details into all these issues and very soon it will come out with its report," Kumar said.
    
When asked to comment on media reports that all four BJP ministers - Chuni Lal Bhagat, Madan Mohan Mittal, Anil Joshi and Surjit Kumar Jyani - had resigned from the Cabinet and handed over their resignations to state party president Kamal Sharma yesterday, Kumar said, "No resignations have been taken. There is no such thing."
    
"I do not know what is the truth in media reports," Shanta Kumar said.
    
He also remained tightlipped when asked if BJP is likely to reshuffle some of its ministers in Punjab.

Punjab BJP president Kamal Sharma told reporters later that, "We put before the Chief Minister the recommendations of the Tandon committee report. We had long discussion with him on a gamut of issues."
