Senior Telangana leader quits Congress, blames Rahul Gandhi for exit


HYDERABAD: In another setback for Congress, leader MA Khan resigned from the party in Telangana.

Khan, a former member of Rajya Sabha, in his letter to senior Congress Leadership, said the Indian National Congress Party has completely failed to persuade the public that it can reclaim its former grandeur and lead the country forward.

"As long as you are actively serving as the party's president, you meticulously followed the consultative process within the party, and you accorded the highest value to the opinion of the senior leader who has dedicated their lives to the party for decades, the party is strong and in a position to fight for the cause of the country," he said.

"The senior leaders are forced to resign from the party because the top leadership is not making any attempts to reactivate the party's grassroots cadres and continue serving the country with the same commitment and dedication that the party demonstrated under the leadership of Pandit Nehru, Indira Gandhi Ji, Sanjay Gandhi Ji, and Rajeev Ji. Given the situation, I had no choice but to decide to stop participating in the Party's operations," Khan said.

"I, therefore, have no option except to disassociate myself from affairs of the Congress Party, hereby tender my resignation to the primary membership of the Indian National Congress (INC) party with immediate effect," he added.

Following his resignation, Khan said he left Congress because things went downhill when Rahul Gandhi assumed the vice president (VP) position of the party committee.

"I resigned from Congress... things started going downhill after Rahul Gandhi handled the post of Vice President (VP) of the party committee. He has a different thought process of his own, which doesn't match with any member, from block level to booth level," Khan said.

"The result of this led to the downfall of Congress. It has reached a point that even veteran members of the party... who strengthened the party for decades, are now leaving. He doesn't know how to behave with senior members," he added.

Earlier, senior leader Anand Sharma had resigned from the Himachal Pradesh party post. Kapil Sibal, Sunil Jakhar and others had also left the party in the month of May. Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad recently resigned from all positions of the Congress party including the primary membership.
