The case of former Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje, who is refusing to take the post of national general secretary offered to her as she feels it will lessen her hold on her state, has the BJP top brass mulling over disciplinary action against her and her team.
The party is thinking of suspending some senior leaders close to Raje to send her a message that she should fall in line and work at the national level, BJP sources said.
Raje kept away from the national executive and council meetings of the party in Indore though she sent some of her emissaries to discuss her case with the BJP top brass. Her son and BJP MP from Jhalawar Dushyant Singh was present.
Raje's reported excuse that she had to attend to an old relative was too flimsy a reason for the top leaders to accept though publicly they were forced to give the same reason for her absence.
Though Raje's supporters from Rajasthan reportedly did not get an audience with BJP President Nitin Gadkari, they did convey to the top leadership that it was best if she continued as Leader of Opposition in the Rajasthan Assembly.
