10 Of 12 BJP MPs Who Won State Elections Resign From Lok Sabha

In a significant political development, ten out of twelve Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Members of Parliament (MPs) who won recent assembly elections in Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, and Chhattisgarh have tendered their resignations from their Lok Sabha seats. The resignations were submitted to the Lok Sabha Speaker in a formal delegation led by BJP chief JP Nadda.

Prominent BJP leaders who relinquished their parliamentary positions include Narendra Tomar, Prahlad Patel, Riti Pathak, Rakesh Singh, and Uday Pratap Singh from Madhya Pradesh; Rajyavardhan Rathore, Kirodi Lal Meena, and Diya Kumari from Rajasthan; and Arun Sao and Gomti Sai from Chhattisgarh.

The resignations follow the BJP’s resounding victories in the state assembly elections, where the party secured a majority in all three states, defeating the Congress. The BJP is now poised to form governments in Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, and Madhya Pradesh.

In a statement after submitting his resignation, Prahlad Patel, who won the Madhya Pradesh Assembly elections from Narsingpur constituency, said, “After meeting BJP president JP Nadda, I have resigned as Lok Sabha MP. Soon, I will also resign from the Cabinet.”

Conversely, the Congress emerged victorious in Telangana, dealing a setback to K Chandrashekar Rao’s Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS).

In the wake of the election results, the chief ministers of Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, and Telangana have formally submitted their resignation letters to their respective governors.

These state assembly elections were widely considered as a crucial precursor to the upcoming Lok Sabha polls scheduled for next year. The BJP’s strong performance in the state elections is likely to boost its morale and strengthen its position in the national political landscape.
