In his resignation post, Vardhan looked back on his achievements during his ‘over thirty years of a glorious electoral career’ and expressed gratitude towards Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP workers.

The 69-year-old leader, who is also the former Union Health Minister, mentioned his victories in all five assembly and two parliamentary elections he participated in and his significant roles in the party and governments at both state and central levels.

Vardhan revealed he will be rejoining the medical profession, and expressed his eagerness to return to his ENT clinic at Krishna Nagar. BJP, in its first list of Lok Sabha election candidates, announced a significant reshuffle in Delhi, dropping four sitting MPs including Parvesh Verma, Ramesh Bidhuri, Meenakshi Lekhi and Harsh Vardhan, and selecting new candidates in their constituencies.
