Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi Monday made a passionate appeal to L.K. Advani to reverse his decision to resign from party positions.

"Had a detailed conversation with Advaniji on phone. Urged him to change his decision. I hope he will not disappoint lakhs of (party workers)," Modi tweeted.

A day after the BJP appointed Modi to lead it in the next Lok Sabha election, Advani quit major party posts after accusing most of its leaders of pursuing "personal agendas".

In another tweet, Modi said he had told BJP president Rajnath Singh that he would not be able to attend a meeting of the party's parliamentary board but would abide by any decision it takes.
