Rahul Gandhi’s aide calls Congress nepotistic and feudal while quitting

In a major setback to Congress, Rahul Gandhi’s close aide Ashish Kulkarni, who has been with the Congress coordination committee (war room) since 2009, has quit alleging the party has moved further towards the Left becoming “anti-Hindu”.

In his resignation he has alleged mismanagement of party affairs and rampant factionalism in the Congress:

In his letter, Kulkarni writes “We today seem more comfortable ideologically and culturally with the far-Left in extending sympathy to Kashmiri separatist, JNU protestors and in minority appeasement. The party is now perceived as just another far-Left ‘Anti-Hindu’ party like the Communists, Trinamool Congress and other leftist organisations.”

He further says that Congress seems far too removed from grassroot reality of India. He also says that the party stalwarts have failed to comprehend the scale and reasons for failure in 2014 elections.

In his resignation he also finds pitching of Priyanka Gandhi against Rahul Gandhi (sister vs brother) “totally disgusting”. He even accused Congress of being elitist, nepotistic and feudal.

Kulkarni’s resignation comes ahead of the crucial Gujarat Legislative Assembly elections which will be held later this year. Kulkarni has accused the party of indecisive functioning for its loss in Maharashtra, Assam, Goa, Uttarakhand and Arunachal. He also claimed that the same was being repeated in Himachal and Gujarat.
