Yashwant Sinha, who had attacked the party leadership of shying away from proper introspection of the electoral debacle, today demanded that other leaders should also follow his example and resign from their posts.
"The party's defeat in the elections is a collective responsibility. When nobody came forward (to take responsibility), I was the first to person to tender my resignation," he told reporters.
Sinha said everyone should follow his example of resigning from their posts owning collective resonsbility, adding a "Kamraj plan" was ideal for reforming the party.
Denying that he had leaked his letter to party President Rajnath Singh, the former Union Minister in the Atal Bihari Vajpayee government wanted a probe into who had leaked it to the media.
On Saturday, Sinha exploded a 'letter bomb' that contained a litany of charges that were seen as a veiled attack on L K Advani and those appointed by him to posts in the Parliamentary Party.
"I had circulated copies of my letter to six members of the Core Group. I demand a probe to find out who had leaked my letter to the media," he said when asked how it reached the media.
Reiterating that he would continue to work for the party, Sinha said he would around his constituency and take stock of the situation.
