Yashwant Singh said "After the communal riots in Gujarat Atal Bihari Vajpayee had decided that then-state CM Modi should resign. While going to the national executive meeting in Goa in 2002, Atalji had made up his mind that the Gujarat government would be dismissed if Modi Ji refused to resign. Advani Ji had opposed dismissing the Modi government and he told Atal Ji that if Modi Ji is dismissed then he (Advani) would resign from the government. So, he withheld the decision and Modi Ji continued."
