However, Assembly Speaker Dinesh Oraon rejected the resignation of the Hussainabad MLA, saying his decision to quit the House was taken in a haste.

Urban Development Minister C P Singh and leader of opposition Hemant Soren of the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha also dissuaded the BSP MLA from leaving the House.
