Urmila Matondkar resigns from Congress, raises serious allegations

urmila-matondkar

NEW DELHI: As the Congress is trying hard to make a strong comeback at the national level, it received a serious blow when actor turned politician Urmila Matondkar announced that she is leaving the party. Urmila, who had joined the Congress just five months ago, added she has taken the decision due to petty in-house politics between those within the party.

She also accused party members using her as a mean to fight petty in-house politics. "My political and social sensibilities refuse to allow vested interests in the party to use me as a mean to fight petty in-house politics instead of working on a bigger goal in Mumbai Congress," she said. Though Matondkar had contested from the Mumbai North constituency in this year's election, she did not manage to win the election.
