More Congress leaders may quit the party after 23rd: Former Congress leader makes explosive revelations

Dr Mishra alleged that the current Lok Sabha candidate from Bhadohi, Ramakant Yadav regularly makes anti-Brahmin remarks

Congress District President, Bhadohi, Uttar Pradesh, Dr Neelam Mishra who tendered her resignation from the grand old party on Saturday after Congress General Secretary for East Uttar Pradesh Priyanka Gandhi reportedly insulted her and other office-bearers has revealed that more Congress leaders may quit the party after the Lok Sabha elections results are out on 23rd May.

Speaking to Republic TV, Mishra said that the cracks appeared in Bhadohi unit when Ramakant Yadav, former Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party as well as BJP leader, was announced as Congress’ Lok Sabha candidate for Bhadohi. “We wanted a local Bhadohi leader to be a candidate but we went with the party decision keeping in mind our devotion to the party. However, Ramakant Yadav made anti-Brahmin comments which did not go down well with the people of Bhadohi. We can’t help it if there are more Brahmins in the district unit,” she said.

Mishra said that throughout the campaigning, Yadav boycotted the party and even had his autocratic way of handling things. “The worst part is that the party was accepting this behaviour,” she said. Mishra added that while she had written to the Pradesh committee as well as to party president Rahul Gandhi, no one paid any heed to the sentiments of the leaders.

In an event on Friday, May 10, which was also attended by Priyanka Gandhi Vadra Mishra alleges that Yadav did not let anyone from the district party unit come. Mishra took up the matter to Priyanka to tell her how the district unit is feeling sidelined and insulted. To that, Priyanka, retorted by saying that it is okay if she and others feel insulted. “Aap apmanit mehsus kar rahi hai to karte rahiye (if you are feeling insulted, then continue feeling so),” she said.

This was the last straw, following which Mishra revolted and quit the party. “Expect many more resignations after the 23rd,” she said. She added that no one in the party is open to feedback and that the internal democracy that Congress harps about is nothing but a farce.
