Confirming that he has submitted his resignation, Parnami said, "I have worked for strengthening the party as its worker. I will continue to work on the responsibilities given to me as a disciplined party worker".

Asked if his resignation was a fallout of the BJP's defeat in the recent bypolls, Parnami said that any defeat or victory is a collective responsibility and individuals are not responsible.

BJP national general secretary Arun Singh on Wednesday appointed Parnami as a member of the national working committee. Parnami was appointed as Rajasthan BJP chief in February 2014 and is also a BJP legislator from Jaipur's Adarsh Nagar constituency.
