Following the announcement of his son's candidature, Birender Singh offered to resign from the Cabinet and Rajya Sabha as well.
With the latest names, the BJP has so far announced 413 candidates for the seven-phase Lok Sabha polls which will start on April 11 and continue till May 19.
The counting of the votes will take place on May 23.
The senior leader said he has informed the BJP president Amit Shah about his resignation offer, with which he wants to send across a message of anti-dynastic politics as his son has got the Lok Sabha ticket.
Singh had joined BJP in 2014 after his over four-decade association with the Congress party.
