Kulkarni persuaded to resign: Jaswant

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.
