Patna: AICC Treasurer Motilal Vora downplayed reports of resignations by some party leaders from the new executive committee set up by state unit president Anil Sharma, apparently to protest Sharma's leadership.

"I know as much as you do about the matter (reports of resignation by the leaders). Party leaders and workers should work together and be disciplined," he told reporters here.

He refused to either confirm or deny reports that some state leaders have submitted resignation letters from the executive committee to the high command, but said, "The matter will be sorted out in the best interests of the party."

The AICC treasurer was on a day-long visit here to meet Governor Devanand Kunwar and state government officials, seeking measures to get some party properties occupied by encroachers vacated.

Sharma too had expressed ignorance about resignations by some leaders in protest against his leadership and said it was for the high command to look into the issue.

He hit back at his detractors saying they were trying to weaken the party and its electoral prospects in the forthcoming assembly polls.

Sharma also questioned the loyalty of his adversaries saying many of them were party hoppers.
