Disgruntled Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam takes a jibe at Milind Deora, questions absence of ‘Nikamma’ from Rahul Gandhi’s Mumbai rally

Milind Deora and Sanjay Nirupam are at loggerheads with each other, especially after the disastrous Lok Sabha rout for the Congress in Maharashtra.

With Maharashtra Assembly elections just days away, the internal rift within the Maharashtra Congress continues as rebel Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam took a swipe at former Mumbai Congress chief Milind Deora tweeting “Where was Nikamma” for his absence in the Mumbai rally of Rahul Gandhi yesterday.


Nirupam had taken to Twitter to allay rumours and suspicions regarding his own absence from Rahul Gandhi’s rally in Mumbai. Nirupam tweeted that he was engrossed in his family function late till the night and therefore couldn’t attend the public gathering addressed by former Congress president Rahul Gandhi. However, he did not hesitate from taking a jibe at Milind Deora, asking why ‘Nikamma’ was not there.

Milind Deora and Sanjay Nirupam are at loggerheads with each other, especially after the disastrous Lok Sabha rout for the Congress in Maharashtra. Nirupam expressed his discontent in public a few days ago saying that Milind Deora is a nikamma who conspired to remove him from the post of Mumbai Congress chief. Nirupam also added that the party was utterly destroyed by Deora in the last 5 months.

Sanjay Nirupam had earlier said that he won’t be campaigning for the Congress party for the Maharashtra assembly elections. This announcement was made after the party rejected one name Sanjay Nirupam had suggested for the Maharashtra assembly elections.

The former MP, sulking over the rejection of his sole recommendation said, “For Mumbai, I had recommended only one name of a potential winner Muslim candidate from Versova, but that has been rejected without assigning reasons. This means the party has no need for me. I shall sit at home during elections.”

Congress leader Sanjay Nirupam also hinted that quitting the party saying that if thinks like these continued, very soon he will have to say “good-bye” to the party.
