Mysuru: Unhappy with the state committee's election process, hundreds of BSP party workers tendered their resignation here on Wednesday, September 4. The resigning members include district presidents under the Mysuru zone including Chamarajanagar, Mysuru, Mandya and Kodagu.
Many of those who resigned today are unhappy with the way in which the election process for the state committee was held recently. They alleged that the representatives, including the BSP's election observer who came from Delhi, did not take the district presidents into confidence while forming state committee.
Senior BSP leaders including the Mysuru district president alleged that the representatives who came from Delhi as observers and a couple of senior leaders in the state have misled party supremo Mayawati.
K N Prabhuswamy, President, BSP Mysuru district said, “The state party observers Ashok Siddarth and M L Thomar have completely misguided party supremo Mayawati. They also encouraged group-ism among the party members. The observer did not conduct an election, instead, they appointed members as per their whims and fancies, which is why most of the party leaders, who have worked for the party for over 20 years, are disappointed and have tendered their resignation. All the taluk presidents in the Mysuru district have also resigned."
“Among the four zones i.e. Mysuru, Belagavi, Bengaluru and Gulbarga, the Mysuru district BSP garnered 1.75 lakh votes in the Lok Sabha elections. This is the highest when compared to the other three zones. But to everyone's surprise, they have dissolved the Mysuru zone committee," he explained.
In total, more than 500 party workers including senior leaders from various districts have tendered their resignations and according to Prabhuswamy, many more will be resigning in the coming days.
Prabhuswamy is yet to take a call about any future course of action after holding a discussion with all those who have tendered their resignation.
