New Delhi, Sep 1: Expelled Bharatiya Janata Party leader Jaswant Singh on Tuesday, Sep 1, said that he would not quit as chairman of Public Accounts Committee.

Speaking to reporters, he said, "The decision (to ask him to quit the PAC) is of the (Lok Sabha) Speaker, and not of a political party."

He also said he would not rejoin the BJP or any other party like the Samajwadi Party, which has been sending him feelers ever since his ouster from the BJP last month.

He was speaking to reporters in the Supreme Court premises where he had come for the hearing on his lawsuit challenging the Gujarat government's decision to ban his book, "Jinnah: India - Partition - Independence."
