BJP leader Vasundhara Raje on Wednesday said she had not stepped down from the post of Leader of Opposition in the Rajasthan Assembly as asked by the party leadership.

"Nothing so," she told reporters in Jaipur when asked whether she had already submitted her resignation to the party high command before returning from Delhi where she met party chief Rajnath Singh and senior leader L K Advani.

Raje, who chaired a meeting here of BJP legislature party, attended by 70 of the 78 MLAs, said "It is my duty to hold the legislature party meeting."

On whether the party high command asked her not to hold the meeting, she said, "That is not true...it is my duty to hold the meeting as I am BJP legislature party leader".

She said "I am a very disciplined member of the party. I will do the best for my party."

On whether the BJP was withdrawing suspension of its two MLAs loyal to her -- Rajendra Singh Rathore and Gyan Deo Ahuja -- Raje said, "The matter is under consideration. They have given their replies to the notice served on them by the state party chief".
