Nationalist Congress Party MLA Prakash Solanke on Monday announced that he would resign as the member of the Maharashtra legislative Assembly, saying he was “unworthy to do politics”, reported PTI.
The MLA from Beed district in Maharashtra denied any link between his decision and his non-induction in the Cabinet. However, he said that the expansion of the Cabinet has proved that “I am unworthy to do politics”.
The Uddhav Thackeray-led government expanded the Cabinet on Monday, more than a month after he assumed office. Governor BS Koshyari had administered the oath of office to 25 Cabinet ministers and 10 ministers of state at Vidhan Bhavan.
“I am going to resign on Tuesday and stay away from politics now,” Solanke PTI.
He added that he was not unhappy with any leader in his party. “I have apprised NCP leaders about my decision to step down,” Solanke, who got elected from Majalgaon seat on four occasions said. “I will meet Assembly Speaker on Tuesday afternoon and hand over my resignation letter. My resignation has nothing to do with the Cabinet expansion.”
