Vasundhra Raje, who resigned as Leader of Opposition in the Rajasthan Assembly following orders from the BJP high command, on Friday met former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

Raje reached Vajpayee's residence soon after the BJP Parliamentary Board formally accepted her resignation.

After defying the directives of the high command for nearly three months, Raje earlier on Friday handed over her resignation to senior party leader L K Advani.

The party high command had asked Raje in August to take moral responsibility for BJP's defeat in the state assembly polls as well as its poor show in the Lok Sabha elections in the state and step down from her post.
