New Delhi: After criticising the BJP leadership for removing him from the post of Uttarakhand Chief Minister, BC Khanduri on Saturday met RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat and is understood to have aired his grievances.

Khanduri, who has been sulking ever since he was forced to resign after the Lok Sabha poll drubbing despite his claims of having the support of a majority of party MLAs, is understood to have discussed the issue with Bhagwat.

The former chief minister has written a letter to party president Rajnath Singh in which he is understood to have criticised his removal even before proper analysis of the results.

Though Khanduri claimed to enjoy the support of 24 of the 35 BJP MLAs in Uttarakhand, he was held responsible for BJP's failure to win even one of the five Lok Sabha seats in the state.

Khanduri, who had described as "unfortunate" the current developments in the party, is also understood to have discussed with Bhagwat the present crisis in BJP.

Top VHP leader Ashok Singhal also held a meeting with Bhagwat at the RSS office here.

Singhal is understood to have discussed the bickerings in the BJP at the meeting which VHP sources described as "routine".
