The letter, written on Saturday, was leaked to the media on Monday. The BJP has taken the issue seriously.
"The party has taken the issue seriously. There is no tradition of getting such matters reflected through the media. The Minister should have raised the issue on the party platform," BJP Spokesperson Pratul Sahdeo told reporters.
Rai has not shared a good relationship with Chief Minister Raghubar Das for some time now. Due to his differences with Das, Rai had given up the additional charge of Parliamentary Affairs Minister last year.
The Chief Minister has not reacted on the 'letter' issue yet.
Party sources said that action may be taken against the Jharkhand Minister after consulting national leaders. The party feels that Rai should have taken up the issue with the party leaders instead of leaking the letter to the media with elections round the corner.
