Mayawati quits Rajya Sabha after being ‘disallowed to speak on Dalit atrocities’

“When the ruling party is not allowing me time to present my view on the current issues, then I think it is better for me to resign.”

Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) Supremo Mayawati on Tuesday resigned from the Rajya Sabha, hours after she claimed she was disallowed from speaking on atrocities against Dalits under the ruling NDA government.

“When the ruling party is not allowing me time to present my view on the current issues, then I think it is better for me to resign,” said Mayawati after sending her resignation letter to the Vice-President.
