Vajpayee expresses concern over leaders leaving BJP

New Delhi, May 30 (PTI): Expressing concern over some senior leaders leaving BJP, former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee today called for an introspection on the issue.

In his valedictory address to the BJP National Executive, Vajpayee said "some people are leaving the party. Though not many are leaving, this issue also needs to be looked into."

Vajpayee's remark assumes significance coming close on the heels of the exit of several leaders including Uma Bharti, Madanlal Khurana and Babulal Marandi from BJP.

"Outsiders cannot cause any crisis for us, but if a crisis happens within the house there are certainly some shortcomings," Vajpayee is understood to have said.
