Ranchi: Aiming to put pressure for early Assembly Elections in Jharkhand, BJP MLAs on Sunday resigned en masse and submitted their resignation to BJP state unit president Raghuvar Das.
The 23 MLAs now plan to meet the President demanding early polls.
The BJP state unit had yesterday sought permission from its central leadership to allow all its MLAs to resign from the House which is in suspended animation.
The Assembly in Jharkhand was put under suspended animation when the President's rule was imposed in the state in January this year.
