Raje's statement is seen as she has been able to convince the central leadership about her apprehensions over the appointment of new party chief, to replace Ashok Parnam, who resigned from the post on last Wednesday.
The discussions took place against the backdrop of Raje's apprehensions about Shah's choice for the post -- Union Minister Gajendra Singh Shekhawat.
According to BJP sources, during her separate meetings with Shah, Ramlal (General Secretary, Organisation) and V. Satish (Joint General Secretary), Raje briefed them about her apprehensions about Shekhawat's appointment for the post.
The decision to appoint a new party chief has been made keeping in mind the assembly polls slated for later in 2018.
In recent by-polls in Alwar and Ajmer Lok Sabha constituencies and the Mandalgarh Assembly segment, the BJP had suffered a jolt as the voters of these constituencies elected Congress candidates.
