BJP Bharuch MP Mansukh Vasava resigns from party

BJP Bharuch MP Mansukh Vasava resigns from party on Tuesday. In his letter to BJP state president C.R Patil, Vasava said he will resign from Lok Sabha during Parliament's budget session. Reportedly, Vasava’s resignation comes days after he wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking withdrawal of MoEFCC notification declaring 121 villages of Narmada district as ‘eco sensitive zone’.

Vasava first got elected to 12th Lok Sabha in a by-election held on 25 November 1998 from the Bharuch Parliamentary Constituency of Gujarat, once a stronghold of Congress President Sonia Gandhi’s political advisor Ahmed Patel.

 “The party has given me opportunities beyond my capacity. I will always be grateful for this to the central leadership. I have been carefully adhering to the principles of the party as well as my personal belief system. But at the end of the day, I am a human bound to err. So that my mistakes do not cause damage to the party, I am tendering my resignation. Please forgive me. I will also submit my resignation as Member of Parliament to the honourable Lok Sabha speaker, during the upcoming budget session,” he stated in the letter.
