New Delhi: Expelled BJP leader Jaswant Singh on Sunday said L K Advani`s aide Sudhendra Kulkarni was "persuaded to resign".

"He (Kulkarni) has been persuaded to resign," Singh
said when asked about Kulkarni`s decision to sever links with
the BJP especially against the backdrop that he had defended
Singh, especially on the issue of his comments on Jinnah.

"I am sorry that a person who worked for so long and
so diligently that Shri Advani has found it sufficiently
(pause). He (Kulkarni ) has been persuaded to resign," Singh
told reporters.
