A BJP leader in Rajasthan, who questioned the Z-plus security cover provided to RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat on a social networking site, on Wednesday resigned from the post "in the interest of the Sangathan".
"My comments offended many so I decided to resign today in the interest of the Sangathan," Kailash Nath Bhatt, a party spokesperson, told reporters in Jaipur.
He also posted his resignation, addressed to party state president Ashok Parnami, on his Facebook account. Commenting on the Z-plus security cover to the RSS chief, he had, in a post on Tuesday, said, "You (Bhagwat) should consider whether this security will make you inaccessible to ordinary swaymasevaks and will not be called a status symbol?"
In his post, Bhatt had also said that even security personnel were not secure while mentioning killing of soldiers in a recent ambush in Manipur.
