Reacting to Vajpayee's statement that Gujarat violence was one of the reasons for the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance's rout in the Lok Sabha election and the party president Venkaiah Naidu's statement ruling out change of guard in the state, CPM general secretary A B Bardhan said: "Vajpayee's words have not gone down well with the other leaders."

He said even Vishwa Hindu Parishad had openly said if anyone was to be blamed for the BJP's defeat it was Vajpayee. "BJP is a victim of its own propaganda," he added.

Bardhan said the BJP has still not been able to figure out the exact cause for its defeat.
