The first crucial meeting of the Himachal BJP held at Una on Thursday to discuss the factors that led to the party's defeat in the November 4 Assembly polls, ended in a blame game with defeated candidates from Kangra holding the top leadership responsible for the poor show.
While both former chief minister Prem Kumar Dhumal and veteran BJP leader Shanta Kumar did not attend the meet, state BJP president Satpal Satti and party's national organising secretary Ram Lal came for the meeting.
All defeated and elected candidates beside district presidents and office bearers were also present.
According to sources, the leaders claimed that wrong distribution of tickets and inability of party to take steps for better coordination among leaders were major factors that led to the defeat.
The Kangra camp, while reportedly warning against putting the blame of the defeat on Shanta Kumar, alleged that the party leadership should take responsibility for the loss.
