Raje given 3 days to quit

 
Raje, who was camping in Delhi for the past few days, left for Rajasthan after her talks with the party leadership broke down with the latter refusing to agree to her demands till she put in her papers, sources said.
 
Raje was asked to step down from her post ten days ago in the  wake of the BJP’s debacle in the Lok Sabha elections in the state.  State BJP chief Om Mathur has already been relieved of his post, while two legislators backing Raje have been suspended.

The BJP’s tally of 21 seats out of the total 25 in the state came down to four in the April-May Lok Sabha elections, while it lost power in the assembly elections late last year, paving the way for the Congress’s return.

“She (Raje) has been asked to resign by August 28 and not to chair a meeting of the party’s legislators on Wednesday when a session of the state assembly begins,” a party source said.
