BJP members Usha Punia and Pratibha Singh resigned from the saffron party on Wednesday, alleging party workers were being neglected.

"I had joined BJP's primary membership after being influenced by its policies and ideas, but in the last few years party workers were being neglected and there is no one to hear their issues," said Punia, a former minister in the Rajasthan government, after tendering her resignation to state BJP president Madan Lal Saini.

Without taking any names, Punia said the government's work was restricted to the chief minister's residence -- Bungalow Number 13.

A former independent legislator from Nawalgarh Pratibha Singh, who had joined the party in 2015, resigned from her primary membership in the party, citing neglect.

She tendered her resignation to BJP national chief Amit Shah and the state president.

Earlier, senior BJP leaders Ghanshyam Tiwari and Manvendra Singh had resigned from the party.
