Rajya Sabha accepts Mayawati’s resignation

Resignation of Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) supremo Mayawati was accepted today after she met Vice President Hamid Ansari, the chairman of the Rajya Sabha.

As per information received, Mayawati’s three-page resignation was reportedly not accepted as it was not in the required format.

A resignation from Parliament must be “unconditional,” only stating the lawmaker’s intent to quit, explained officials in the Rajya Sabha secretariat. It must not contain explanations. Ms Mayawati’s resignation detailed the events that led to her angry walkout from the House and her decision to resign.

It may be recalled that claiming she was not allowed to speak in the house on atrocities against Dalits under BJP-led NDA government rule, Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) Chief Mayawati on Tuesday resigned from Rajya Sabha. BSP supremo alleged that she was not allowed to speak on what she called frequent attacks on Dalits in Uttar Pradesh.
