Rajasthan Elections: State Water Resources Minister Surendra Goyal resigns from BJP

New Delhi:

Surendra Goyal, Rajasthan Minister, resigned from the primary membership of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), less than a month before the assembly elections in the state. This came hours after BJP's former general secretary in Rajasthan Kuldeep Dhankhar quit the party.

Goyal, Rajasthan Water Resources Minister, could not make it to the BJP’s first list of 131 out of the total 200 candidates for the December 7 Assembly polls.

Earlier in the day, Dhankhar expressed his unhappiness over the ticket distribution in his resignation letter to state BJP chief Madan Lal Saini. He was expecting ticket from Viratnagar constituency in Jaipur district. The BJP, however, overlooked Dhankhar and fielded sitting MLA Phoolchand Bhinda from Viratnagar.
