Dissidence in NCP blows over

August 03, 2004 18:07 IST

Dissidence in the Nationalist Congress Party blew over after the sulking former Maharashtra deputy chief minister Chhagan Bhujbal attending a party meeting in Mumbai on Tuesday along with two other disgruntled leaders and claiming that 'everything has been resolved'.

Bhujbal, who had kept away from a party training camp in Mumbai on Sunday, attended a high-level meeting at Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel's residence and later told reporters that 'everything is fine now'.
