BJP seeks explanation from Vasundhara Raje

October 16, 2009 21:20 IST

Bharatiya Janata Party president Rajnath Singh is learnt to have sought an explanation from former Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje for delaying her resignation as Opposition leader in the Assembly in defiance of the party's parliamentary board decision.

He has handed over a letter to senior party leader Sushma Swaraj to hand over to Vasundhara to seek her explanation as to why she did not  obey the party's directive and indulged in tantrums that amounted to a  confrontation with the party leadership.

His brief to Sushma Swaraj, who was appointed the new pointsman in place of former president M Venkaiah Naidu on Thursday, is to secure Vasundhara's reply to the notice by October 22 when the parliamentary board will meet to decide action against her unless she resigns by that time.
