New Delhi, July 26 (ANI): The Bharatiya Janata Party on Sunday declined to comment on former External Affairs Minister Yashwant Sinha's recent criticism of the party's defeat in the recent elections.

Party spokesperson Muktar Abbas Naqvi, refused to react to Sinha's comments at a Sunday press conference.

Sinha, who resigned from the post of party vice president after its poll debacle had expressed dissatisfaction with the party leadership for not seriously analysing the reasons for its defeat.

During the meeting of the National Executive Committee of the party in June, party President Rajnath Singh warned members against expressing their views in public.

Sinha alleged in an interview that the BJP's defeat was explained within the party in a casual and lighthearted manner.

He thought that there would be a lot of activity and serious introspection during the national executive, but nothing of that kind happened, and this disappointed him, Sinha said.

Even during the meeting of newly elected Members of Parliament in the month of May there was no serious discussion about the debacle, Sinha alleged.

Sinha also distanced himself from the view of that the emergence of a bipolar polity in the country was the reason for the party's defeat. This was advocated by L.K. Advani and Arun Jaitley.

E also expressed his dissatisfaction over the party's decision to not allow him to initiate the debate on the recent budget. (ANI)
