Rajasthan MLA's resignation rejected by Speaker
(5 months ago)
Jaipur, Jan 2 : The resignation of Independent MLA Rajkumar Sharma to protest the handling of the doctors' strike was rejected by Rajasthan Assembly Speaker Kailash Meghwal on Tuesday.
Sharma tendered his resignation as a mark of protest against the government's "apathetic attitude" in handling the doctors' strike which claimed several lives in the state.
According to sources, the resignation letter comprised three pages, which is not according to the set pattern. The resignation letter mainly comprises a page, and never comes along with the reasons and explanations.
Since Sharma's resignation letter "read more like a memorandum" there were few chances of it getting accepted, the sources added.
The doctors strike in Rajasthan ended last Wednesday. However, during the strike period, both in November and December, around 300 patients are reported to have died due to absence of doctors in hospitals.
