However, he has not resigned either from the BJP party or from the state assembly.

“Jai Ram Thakur gave some statements against me in my constituency yesterday (Thursday) and I am upset. This morning I decided to quit from his cabinet and submitted my resignation to his office,” Sharma, who holds the Power portfolio, told reporters here.

However, he clarified that he has not resigned from the Legislative Assembly.

“I am still a member of the BJP but I would not campaign for any party candidate,” he added. “If the BJP desires it can sack me from the party,” he said.
