Congress in trouble as many regional leaders distance themselves stating problems with the party’s current policies

Trouble seems to be mounting for the Congress party ahead of 2019 Lok Sabha elections, as their veteran leader and Uttar Pradesh Congress Committee Vice-President Mani Shankar Pandey, who has been closely associated with the party for over 45 years, has resigned from the party.

The veteran attributed the party’s desperation to regain power, and stated that the party has now been rendered direction-less and deviating frequently from its principles.

While sending his resignation letter to the Congress president, Rahul Gandhi, Manishankar said that the attitude of the Congress leadership had forced him to break his ties with the party. He further stated in his letter that the coalition-politics (Mahagatbandhan) which the party is resorting to in its desperation to attain power is against the party ideologies.

The veteran leader while reconciling his resignation said that he is deeply saddened as today’s Congress is not the Congress which once followed the ideologies laid by Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi.

Slamming the Congress for appointing actor turned politician, Raj Babbar as a state president, Manishankar lambasted saying that there is no room left for experienced, dedicated and old members of the party since the most important offices have been acquired by the non-Congressmen.

Recently, in a similar setback, senior Congress leader and 4 times Meghalaya CM DD Lapang had resigned from the party after citing frustrations due to faulty party policies. Lapang had stated in his letter that Congress is now sidelining senior leaders and phasing them out.

Carrying on the latest trend four suspended Bihar Congress leaders had in February bid goodbye to the Congress and joined Nitish Kumar led Janata Dal (United).

Similarly, in the month of April, we reported the Youth Congress leaders from the Dakshin Kannada district submitted mass resignations over the party’s decision to deny a ticket to Youth Congress president of Dakshina Kannada District.

As per the general secretary of the Dakshina Kannada District Youth Congress Committee – Kiran Kumar, the denial of ticket to Rai had ‘pained’ the district’s youth leaders. As a result, he claimed youth leaders weren’t showing much interest in working for the party, which resulted in the mass resignations.

During the same time, we also reported Congress MLC Dinesh Pratap Singh, MLA Rakesh Pratap Singh and the Zilla Panchayat chairman Awadhesh Pratap Singh, from Rae Bareli, which is one if the key constituency of the Congress, quitted the party citing neglect from top leaders of the party despite winning consistently from the constituency.
