New Delhi, Aug 31 (ANI): Former Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje failed to meet senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Venkaiah Naidu citing health grounds and sent her son Dushyant in her place as representative.

Raje had arrived on Sunday to meet senior BJP leaders in the wake of growing demand for her resignation from the post of leader of opposition in Rajasthan State assembly.

According to reports, Dushyant, a Lok Sabha member and representative of the Jhalawar-Baran constituency of Rajasthan, spent over an hour with Naidu and is believed to have discussed some critical issues.

Party President Rajnath Singh had previously asked Raje to step down from her post.

Earlier, the BJP central leadership had asked Raje to meet them in New Delhi to discuss the issues related to functioning of the party in Rajasthan State.

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.

However, Raje has asserted that she has no plans to leave Rajasthan and would continue to serve people of the state "post or no post". (ANI)
