In a major setback to Congress leadership, Party’s former Punjab chief announced his resignation through Facebook live. While the party’s brainstorming conference, ‘Chintan Shivir’, is underway, the resignation of the senior leader Sunil Jakhar has become a major shock. As per reports, he was upset by the party’s response to his supposed anti-party activities.
Jakhar claimed that the Congress officials “sitting in Delhi ruined the party in Punjab” and blamed Ambika Soni’s statement on the “repercussions of having a Hindu chief minister in Punjab” for the party’s “disastrous performance” in the February-March state elections.
Following the veteran, an attempt was also made “to portray the Congress as a poor BSP in the state.” Then, in a passionate outburst, he warned Congress President Sonia Gandhi, “Don’t drift from your ideology.” Harish Chaudhary, former state in-charge Harish Rawat, and Tariq Anwar were the other leaders he targeted during his ‘Dil Ki Baat’ Facebook live message.
