"I had raised various people-centric issues with the committees I was part of in Parliament. It is sad that action has not been taken on the issues. There is no justification for committees in the parliamentary system if action is not taken," Beniwal said in a statement.

He further said, "As the issues remained unheard and due to the farmers' agitation, I am tendering my resignation from the committees."
