"Chavan's resignation should be accepted without delay and without wondering who his replacement should be," asked BJP on Oct 31.
However, Chavan with Defence Minister, AK Antony met Finance Minister, Pranab Mukherjee in the capital on Oct 31, where Mukherjee stated, "I will require more time to go through the papers and therefore it would not be possible for me or Antony to say anything right now."
Chavan also met Congress President, Sonia Gandhi on Oct 31 and stated, "CBI inquiry is also welcome. The truth should be out. Everyone should know all the facts."
"I have offered to tender my resignation, left it to the Congress President to take the final call," he added.
