Bahujan Samajwadi Party Chief Mayawati had resigned from Rajya Sabha during the ongoing session on Tuesday angrily storming out of the house. She said that she was not given enough time to speak about the atrocities on Dalits.

On the second day of the Monsoon session, Mayawati had charged upon BJP saying that since BJP came to power at the centre the Dalits and poor people were in bad condition and were facing a lot of atrocities deliberately practiced by the party. She wanted more time to speak about the issue but was denied by Deputy Chairperson PJ Kurien.

Reacting to this Mayawati angrily walked out of the house and gave a three-page long resignation letter to the Vice President Hamid Ansari, which was later rejected on the grounds that it was not presented in the required format. BSP party critics said that the chief was well aware that her resignation would not be accepted in such lengthy formats and it was just a political drama she played to gain the attention.

Pointing out the previous incidents the critic said, when Navjot Singh Sidhu had resigned from the Lok Sabha last year, his first resignation letter was not accepted because he had written he was resigning on moral grounds. The next day, he had to send another letter without citing any reason for his resignation.

Another incident was brought to notice when Amarinder Singh, now Chief Minister of Punjab, resigned from the Lok Sabha over the Sutlej-Yamuna Link (SYL) canal water sharing agreement, he offered a lengthy thesis for his resignation. It was not accepted and he had to replace it with a one-line resignation.

Mayawati also again on Thursday submitted a one line hand written resignation letter to Hamid Ansari, which is now accepted.
