New Delhi, Aug. 25 (ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday directed former Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje not to hold a proposed meeting of the MLAs on Wednesday.

Rajnath Singh has directed Vasundhara not to hold the MLAs meet, an NDTV report quoted sources as saying.

It is expected that the BJP leadership may seek help of senior party leader Lal Krishan Advani over the ongoing issue of Vasundhara Raje's resignation, the report added.

Raje returned to Jaipur without tendering her resignation from the post of Leader of the Opposition of Rajasthan State Assembly, the report stated.

Rajnath Singh has reportedly given four days time to submit her resignation, a CNN-IBN report stated.

Earlier, Bharatiya Janata Party on Tuesday issued show-cause notice to its leader Arun Shourie over his outburst against the party and its leadership in the media.

BJP sought clarification from Shourie over his remarks made in an interview to private TV channel during a programme on Monday.

The much-anticipated action came Shourie's remarks that termed the party as "Kati Patang" (a kite without its sting attached) and describing BJP President Rajnath as "Alice in Blunderland" and "Humpty Dumpty" were viewed as a matter of indiscipline.

Shourie had also urged the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh to takeover the charge of the BJP and suggested to remove all its top leaders. (ANI)
