NEW DELHI: The resignation of three Lok Sabha members, including Yogi Adityanath and Keshav Prasad Maurya, have been accepted, Speaker Sumitra Mahajan said today.

Adityanath is now the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, and Maurya is his deputy.

Both had tendered their resignations on September 21 which were accepted with effect from that date, Mahajan said.

Besides the two BJP leaders, Nana Patole had tendered his resignation from the Lower House on December 8, which was accepted with effect from December 14, she said during Zero Hour.

Patole, a BJP leader who had defeated NCP leader and former Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel in the 2014 general elections, had accused the party leadership of failing to keep promises while raising the issue of farmers' distress.

He had quit the BJP and his Lok Sabha seat on December 8.

While Patole was elected member from Bhandara-Gondiya constituency in Maharashtra, Adityanath and Maurya represented Gorakhpur and Phulpur constituencies in Uttar Pradesh.
