Lucknow, November 22 (IANS) Dissatisfaction in the Uttar Pradesh Congress has now come on the social media platform and party leaders and activists are announcing their resignations over it.
In the past few days, party workers from various districts have posted posts about leaving the party on Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp.
Former MP expelled from the Congress Santosh Singh said, “In any other party, in such a situation the alarm bell would ring, but the Congress leadership has refused to take cognizance of the developments happening here.” It is common for leaders to leave the party, but when activists start leaving the party, it is time for introspection.
Konark Dixit, another expelled leader of the party, said, “Party workers are upset that there is only 14 months left in the election here and the High Command is ignoring matters here.” Some people are partying during the disaster and the leaders sitting in Delhi are not looking here.
A number of Congress leaders, concerned over the state of rebellion in the party, have written letters to Congress President Sonia Gandhi and former President Rahul Gandhi, but have neither received a response nor a new appointment.
Former MLC Haji Siraj Mehndi, who was expelled from the party, said, “We have been demanding to meet the Congress President since November last year, but we have not been allowed yet.” The expulsion of ten senior leaders of the party in November 2019 was against the Congress constitution, but no one is willing to listen to us.
When contacted, UPCC President Ajay Kumar Lallu did not respond to the call and no party spokesperson is willing to comment on the situation.
One of them said, we cannot tell what is happening. Only senior leaders can comment on the matter.
