Delhi BJP Vice President Aamir Raza Hussain has resigned from his post after his statement against Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi anguished the party leadership.

In a letter to Delhi BJP President Vijay Goel, Husain said that he should not have made comments which could cause hurt to a senior leader of the party while holding an important post.

Husain had yesterday told a newschannel that Muslims would prefer senior party leader L K Advani or Leader of Opposition in Lok Sabha Sushma Swaraj over Modi as the Prime Ministerial candidate.

His intention was not to cause anguish against any leader and he has tendered his resignation from the post, Delhi BJP said in a statement.

Goel has accepted his resignation, it said.
