National BJP Vice-President and BJP Himachal in charge Kalraj Mishra supported Shanta Kumar desire to woo back all rebel BJP leaders who have formed the Himachal Lokhit Party (HLP). He said that all those leaders had worked hard to stand BJP in State and on this ground they should be woo back to the party fold.

Kalraj Mishra also praised Khushi Ram Balnatah, who has been castigated by every BJP leader right from state BJP chief Satpal Satti to district-level leaders for speaking his mind in a letter written to party Chief Nitin Gadkari. He said that Balnatah is a very dedicated party worker and he is like a asset for the party.

Kalraj Mishra hoped that differences within the party would be resolved before the assembly poll and the party would concentrate on each and every assembly segment. Mishra admitted that senior BJP leader Shanta Kumar could be hurt due to some remarks or developments but he has always kept the party above his personal interest.
