BJP leader Vasundhara Raje Scindia will meet party president Rajnath Singh and senior leader L K Advani on Saturday during which her fate as Leader of the Opposition in Rajasthan Assembly will be discussed in the backdrop of the central leadership seeking her resignation.

The former Rajasthan Chief Minister, who reached here on Friday evening, has sought appointments with Mr. Singh and Mr. Advani, party sources said.

The party high command has sought her resignation in the wake of BJP's poor performance in Rajasthan in the Lok Sabha elections, but has not set any deadline for her to quit.

Making it clear that Ms. Raje will have to put in her papers, senior party leader Sushma Swaraj had said on Friday in Shimla that even B C Khanduri had been asked to resign as Uttarakhand Chief Minister after the party failed to win a single Lok Sabha seat in the State.
