Congress disintegrating: 10 Tripura leaders step down after state party chief’s resignation

Kirit Pradyot Manikya DebBarma, the head of the erstwhile reigning dynasty of Tripura and the president of Tripura Congress has resigned from his post on September 24.

A day after Tripura Congress president Kirit Pradyot Manikya DebBarma resigned from his post, ten party leaders in the state have stepped down today sending the Congress party into a tizzy.

These leader’s who have put down their papers have said that they would soon float a new political party which would address tribal and non-tribal issues.

According to a report by The Indian Express, Pradesh Congress general secretary Dinesh Debbarma said: “We squarely blame the AICC general secretary Luizinho Faleiro for the present condition of Tripura and the party here and the circumstances in which ‘Maharaja’ Pradyot Kishore had no alternative but to tender his resignation.”

Kirit Pradyot Manikya DebBarma, the head of the erstwhile reigning dynasty of Tripura and the president of Tripura Congress, resigned from his post on September 24. Taking to Twitter, Pradyot shared a note where he wrote that he is looking forward to spending his days without listening to criminals, back-stabbing colleagues and without having to take the High-command’s order to accommodate corrupt people in high positions.

He also stated that there is no space for him in the party anymore. His note speaks about differences with colleagues and the corrupt practice of getting people into a high position on the high command’s order. He has stated that his health and life were being affected in Congress.

Congress which has been undergoing immense pressure due to the string of resignations and defections by party leaders in the last few weeks. Over the past few weeks, several young Congress leaders have revolted against the party by either resigning from key posts, joining rival parties or accusing the party top brass of not doing enough to safeguard their interests.

Recently, former Jharkhand Congress chief Ajoy Kumar joined the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Thursday in the presence of Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia. He also revolted against the party’s senior leaders before he resigned from the post last month blaming the party top brass of seeking “to grab political posts for personal benefits” and making “every attempt to bypass the systems that have been put in place to benefit the party”.
