New Delhi: Amid worries in Bharatiya Janata Party over the resignation of veteran party leader Lal Krishna Advani from organizational posts, senior party leader Sushma Swaraj said there is no crisis and the party will move forward with the blessings of Advani.

Sushma Swaraj, who is the leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha, tweeted late on Monday night that that party was united. Sushma Swaraj had earlier on Monday evening took part in a meeting of the BJP parliamentary board at party president Rajnath Singh's residence in New Delhi, where the board  rejected Advani's resignation.

Advani has resigned from the posts in BJP election committee, parliamentary board and the party's national executive, a day after the party appointed Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi as the chief of BJP's campaign committee for 2014 General elections.

Several party leaders including Sushma Swaraj met Advani throughout the day on Monday to persuade him to withdraw his resignation.

Some party leaders also met him after the meeting of the parliamentary board. Sushma Swaraj is considered close to Advani.

"BJP parliamentary board has rejected the resignation of Advaniji. There is no crisis in BJP. We are all united. We are all one. We will move forward with the blessings of Advaniji," Sushma Swaraj said in a tweet.
