Jaipur, Aug 30 (ANI): Former Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje today left for New Delhi to meet central leaders of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Raje, who left along with some of her supporters, will meet party senior leader M Venkaiah Naidu tomorrow.

Earlier, the BJP central leadership had said that they have asked Raje to report to them in New Delhi on August 30.

On Thursday, Raje had asserted that she had no plans to leave Rajasthan and would continue to serve the people of the state "post or no post".

Raje, however, declined to comment on whether she would resign from the post.

She has been asked by the BJP high command to step down as the Leader of the Opposition in the wake of the party's poor performance in the Lok Sabha and the state Assembly elections.

In the 2009 general elections, the BJP was reduced to four seats from 23 that it had in 2004 in Rajasthan. (ANI)
