Indian National Lok Dal MLA Abhay Chautala on Wednesday resigned from the Haryana Assembly over the Centre's 3 new farm laws. Chautala was the only MLA from his party to resign. Speaker Gian Chand Gupta accepted his resignation with immediate effect. Earlier this month, the 3-time MLA from Ellenabad had written to the speaker, stating that the letter could be considered as his resignation if the contentious laws are not withdrawn by January 26. However, Gupta rejected his resignation, saying that a conditional letter cannot be considered as lawmaker's resignation.
