The leadership crisis in BJP continued to elude a solution as Mohan Bhagwat met L K Advani today after which the RSS expressed confidence that the party leaders would stand united, "overcome the challenge" and resolve the problems amicably to emerge stronger.

Mr Bhagwat drove to Advani's home for breakfast. He had met senior leader Murli Manohar Joshi yesterday.

"The RSS is assured that the BJP leadership as a party will stand united, face the present situation, overcome all problems and emerge stronger. We have been given such an assurance and we also feel that they will resolve the problems," RSS leader Madan Das Devi, who accompanied Mr Bhagwat to the breakfast meeting, told reporters after the discussions.

He described Advani as the "senior most" leader of the BJP and said it was natural that he and other leaders would meet Mr Bhagwat and discuss the current situation in the party and the nation.

To a question on the situation in the BJP, Mr Devi pointed out that Mr Bhagwat had already said in his Friday's press conference that the BJP leaders would discuss among themselves and come out with a decision which would be announced when it is taken.

He said BJP is a big party of activists and "crises will keep coming" and the RSS was confident that all problems would be resolved.
