Uttar Pradesh: Humiliated by Priyanka Gandhi, Congress leaders and other office-bearers quit the party

Neelam Misra, meanwhile, also confirmed to support Rangnath Misra, the joint candidate of the SP-BSP alliance for the election slated for May 12

Cracks within the Congress party have emerged as the district unit president of Bhadohi, Uttar Pradesh along with some other office bearers resigned from the party on Saturday, alleging humiliation by AICC general secretary, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, after they approached her with a complaint regarding a candidate.

The district unit president, Neelam Misra while speaking to newspersons confirmed, “A complaint was made to Priyanka Gandhi about Congress candidate Ramakant Yadav not coordinating with anyone in the unit Friday and she was also told that none of the office bearers was invited for a rally here.”

Priyanka Gandhi had addressed an election rally in Bhadohi, Uttar Pradesh on May 10, to support Congress party candidate, Ramakant Yadav, representing the Bhadohi constituency in the progressing Lok Sabha elections.

Misra alleged that Priyanka Gandhi not only ignored the grievance of the party workers but also used “strong words” against her publicly. Misra, along with other office bearers approached Priyanka Gandhi with their complaints, as she is the Congress’s eastern Uttar Pradesh in-charge. However, the district unit president said that “the AICC general secretary paid no heed and said if they are feeling humiliated over this then they can continue to feel this way,” claimed Misra.

Neelam Misra, meanwhile, also confirmed to support Rangnath Misra, the joint candidate of the SP-BSP alliance for the election slated for May 12.

When contacted, district vice president of the Congress Mushir Iqbal said Neelam Misra and others have taken this step in “haste” and that they should have waited for the elections to be over.

This is however not the first instance where the Congress leaders have resigned citing their bosses arrogance and indifference towards its members as the reason for the same. Previously too, the arrogance spread out by the current generation dynasts have forced other senior members to abandon the party.

Congress members have abandoned the grand old party saying that their perception and emotions do not matter for the party supremos.

While, Priyanka Chaturvedi, one of the most vocal spokespersons of the Congress party has tendered her resignation recently from all party posts and even the primary membership of the party saying that her self respect was being compromised, the former chief minister of Maharashtra and a fellow Congress party worker, Ashok Chavan had in an unverified audio tape expressed his desire to quit the Congress party as his views were no longer been respected by the party.
