Ghulam Nabi Azad, in his lengthy resignation letter, has blamed Rahul Gandhi for the demolition of the party. He has alleged that proxies are propped up for the president`s post, who will only be a mere puppet.
– BJP has ridiculed Congress after Azad’s departure.
– The saffron party said that Congress will only have Gandhis left soon.
– Azad today quit Congress, citing Rahul Gandhi’s leadership as the primary reason for the party’s decline.
“Only Gandhis will be left in the party soon with so many senior leaders quitting after being ”ignored and neglected” by the party,” the BJP leadership said, taking a dig at the main opposition party Congress on Friday.If you read my letter from 2015 and Azad’s letter, you’ll find a lot of similarities. Rahul Gandhi is immature and everyone in Congress knows it.She’s not taking care of the party. She’s only promoting her son.”It is a futile attempt,” Assam CM Himanta Biswa Sarma said.
As a result, people who were loyal to parties are deserting them. I predicted that a time would come for Congress when only Gandhis would remain in the party, and it is happening.”Sarma told the reporters that Rahul Gandhi is really a blessing for BJP.”
After Ghulam Nabi Azad resigned from all party positions and blamed Rahul Gandhi for causing serious damage to the party, the Congress central leadership hit back on Friday.”It is unfortunate and regrettable that this happened when the organisation is combating BJP on price rise and unemployment, among other issues,” said Congress general secretary and national spokesperson Jairam Ramesh, reacting to his resignation.
“The content of Ghulam Nabi Azad’s letter is not factual and the timing is awful,” said Congress, acknowledging that Ghulam Nabi Azad was a senior party leader. Congress added that it was “saddening that he quit when the party is fighting against inflation and polarisation.”
Azad alleged that the “coterie” chose to “unleash its sycophants on us and got us attacked, vilified and humiliated in the crudest manner possible” when in August 2020 he and twenty two other senior colleagues, including former Union Ministers and Chief Ministers wrote to Sonia Gandhi to flag the abysmal drift in the party.
