Press Trust of India  |  Mumbai 

Ashish Deshmukh, who resigned as a member of the Legislative Assembly last week, has also quit the primary membership of the party.

He alleged that policies of the BJP-led state government had created a "paralysis".

Deshmukh, who represented constituency in Vidarbha region, sent his resignation letter to BJP president Thursday.

He cited the BJP-led government's 'failure' to address issues such as unemployment and the plight of farmers, Dalits and minorities in Maharashtra, particularly in Vidarbha, as the reason for leaving the party.

"I have given up the primary membership of the BJP in order to attract your attention to the issues emerging out of the caused by the policies of government," said in the letter.
