Varanasi: Shyamdev Rai Chaudhary, a renowned Bharatiya Janata party leader of Varanasi and a seven time Legislator from city's South assembly constituency, resigned from the active politics on Wednesday.
The BJP leader, popularly known as 'Dada', announced his resignation and said that he would be working for the group but will not be active in electoral politics. According to the speculations in the political circles, Chaudhary was upset after not getting assembly ticket from the party for the 2017 polls.
It is worth mentioning that Shyamdev Rai Chaudhary had won every assembly election form the Varanasi South assembly seat for past seven times but the party did not nominate him as its candidate for the 2017 UP Polls.
Chaudhary also said no to campaign for Neelkanth Tiwari, the candidate who was nominated by the party in place of the former. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, himself, tried to talk to the leader but it went in vain as the latter refused to participate in the rallies and campaigns.
