‘Unfortunate that we have had to read this letter’: Politician leaders across party lines react to Ghulam Nabi Azad’s Congress exit

Veteran Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Friday quit the Congress party and resigned from all his posts. In a strongly worded letter to party chief Sonia Gandhi, Azad said, “The entire organizational election process is a sham and sham. Nowhere in the country elections have been held at the level of the organization at any level. ‘Unfortunately, we had to read this letter: Ghulam Nabi Azad exiting Congress’.

In the five-page letter, he said, “The elected lieutenants of the AICC have been compelled to sign the lists prepared by the troupe running the AICC sitting at 24 Akbar Road.”

Congress leaders, party workers and leaders across party lines reacted to Azad’s exit from the party.

Senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said, “At a time when every Congressman and woman is involved in making Bharat Jodi Yatra rally a success, and every Congressman and woman wants to be a Bharat Yatri and walk with Rahul Gandhi on this 3500 km. Is. Long journey, it is most unfortunate that we had to read this letter.”

In his letter, Azad accused Congress leader Rahul Gandhi of “dismantling the entire consultation mechanism” after he was appointed the party’s vice president in 2013.

Congress party reacted to the issue by saying, “Ghulam Nabi Azad was a senior Congress leader, sadly he left when the party was fighting against inflation, polarization.”

“All senior and experienced leaders were sidelined and a new circle of inexperienced sycophants ran the affairs of the party,” Azad wrote in his letter.

Former Congress spokesperson Jaiveer Shergill, who quit the party on Wednesday, told news agency ANI, “In fact, this party is working on ‘Congress Todo campaign’ within Congress, ousting all good leaders. It speaks to the sentiments of thousands of good-natured Congress workers who are troubled by this ‘courtly’ culture.”

Former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit’s son Sandeep Dikshit said she felt cheated after reading the letter. “When I read your letter of resignation, it disappointed me and, unfortunately, again gave me a sense of betrayal. Without Ghulam Nabi Azad the Indian National Congress would be very weak, but Ghulam Nabi Azad who wrote the letter G23, not Ghulam Nabi Azad who wrote this resignation,” he wrote in a statement.

BJP leader Kuldeep Bishnoi said, “It will not be wrong to say that Congress is in self-destruct, suicidal mode. I suggest Rahul Gandhi keep his ego aside… Ghulam Nabi Azad is welcome in the BJP. If the party asks me, I can convince him to join the party.

In his letter, Azad accused Congress leader Rahul Gandhi of “dismantling the entire consultation mechanism” after he was appointed the party’s vice president in 2013.

National Conference leader Omar Abdullah said Azad’s resignation from the Congress was a blow to the party and it was sad and scary to see the party explode. Abdullah tweeted, “Long rumoured but no less a big blow to Congress. Perhaps the most senior leader to quit the party in recent times, his resignation letter is too painful to read. India’s grand old party It’s sad and quite scary to see the grand old party of India implode.”
