Senior Bharatiya Janata Party leader LK Advani has resigned from all positions in the party, TV channels are reporting.

this. Read Advani's letter to Rajnath Singh
Advani submitted his resignation letter to party president Rajnath Singh and is believed to have said that he is unhappy with the direction the BJP is taking, CNN-IBN reported.

Stunned into silence with the unprecedented development BJP spokespersons refused to react to Advani's decision to resign from party posts.

What he said in the letter:

No longer I have the feeling that this is the same idealistic party created by Shyama Prasad Mookerjee, Deendayal Upadhyay and A B Vajpayee.

Most BJP leaders are concerned just with their personal agendas.

I have been finding it difficult to either reconcile with the current functioning of the party or direction in which its going.
