Independent MLA from Nawalgarh Rajkumar Sharma could not tend his resignation on Friday as the Assembly speaker Kailash Meghwal was not in Jaipur. As per rules, a member can hand over resignation only to the speaker. The assembly secretary, Prithviraj was also not present. He was at an official exam for stenographers jobs at the assembly. Staff at the assembly told Sharma to come back on Monday.  

“The speaker had left for Bhilwara early today morning. He will be back on Monday. I will meet him then and hand over my resignation,” said Sharma speaking to DNA.

Sharma continued with his offensive against the health minister and demanded that Kalicharan Saraf should take moral responsibility of 304 deaths that occurred during the strike and resign from his post.

Rajkumar Sharma had come to Vidhan Sabha. Apparently, he had not taken prior appointment from the Speaker, Kailash Meghwal who left on a pre-decided tour to Bhilwara for three days. When asked by the media whether he would contest the by-election, Sharma said, “I will submit my resignation, there will be a by-election after the speaker accepts it.” Sharma, who was MoS medical and health in the Gehlot government, had announced to resign from his membership of the legislative assembly to protest against the government’s mishandling of the doctors’ strike in Rajasthan. Health minister Kalicharan Saraf had termed it a publicity stunt.
