Bharatiya Janata Party Hazaribagh (Jharkhand), June 14 (ANI): Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Yashwant Sinha, on Sunday said that he had no intention of quitting the right-wing party, and expressed happiness over the party leadership accepting his resignation from top posts.

Interacting with journalists here, Sinha said: “I had sent my resignation to be accepted. Therefore, I’m happy that my resignation has been accepted and I have no further comments to make.”

“Of course, I’m in the party. I will be in the party,” he added.

He had on Saturday quit as the party’s Vice President and from other posts, charging the leadership with not taking responsibility for the electoral debacle.

Sinha is apparently upset over the party’s chief election strategist Arun Jaitley being made the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha.

“It is difficult to avoid the impression that in the BJP we put a premium on failure,” his letter to the party leader said. (ANI)
