New Delhi: Embattled liquor baron Vijay Mallya is set to be expelled from the Rajya Sabha with Chairman Hamid Ansari on Tuesday turning down his resignation on procedural grounds and Ethics Committee rejecting it.

“Hamid Ansari, Chairman, Rajya Sabha does not accept the resignation of Vijay Mallya. Secretary General, Rajya Sabha writes to Sh. Mallya that his resignation letter does not conform to prescribed procedures & does not  bear signature in original.

 

As per Rule 213 of RS procedures, the resignation must be voluntary and genuine,” Ansari’s Officer on Special Duty to  Gurdeep Singh Sappal said on Twitter quoting from the Secretary General's letter.

Mallya had submitted a scanned copy of the resignation to Ansari letter in a bid to avoid expulsion  saying he did not want his “name and reputation to be further dragged in  mud”. 

“And since recent events suggest that I will not get a fair trial or justice, I am hereby resigning as a member of the Rajya Sabha with immediate effect,” Mallya had said a day before the Ethics panel  was all set to recommend his expulsion.
