"They should do it like Advani had done it, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Sharad Yadav. There are many such examples and it will benefit the party," Govindacharya said when asked whether the External Affairs Minister and the Rajasthan Chief Minister should resign in the wake of the raging row over the former IPL ccommissioner.

'Swaraj, Raje should quit'

"It seems they(Swaraj and Raje) have given some help. They had good relations...Like share issues or Dushyant Singh issue are concerned. From common man's perception, they are guilty. Even if they resign on moral ground, if they were proved not guilty they can come back," he told a TV channel.

"The image of party and the government will improve. If they think to fight it legally then the issue will continue to stick as it happened in the Bofors issue," he said.

On External Affairs Minister's defence that she helped Lalit Modi on humanitarian grounds as his wife was to be operated for cancer, Govindacharya said Swaraj should understand what she has said. "She should be cautious," he said.
