Senior Congress leader cum former MLA of Jania, Abdur Rouf on Sunday resigned from the party. Rouf was holding the post of vice-chairman of the PCC’s minority cell and its executive member.
In his resignation letter, he wrote that he has resigned in the “larger interest of his people, his constituency and Assam”.
Rouf mentioned that ‘Gandhian principles and ideologies are no longer followed in the party’.
“From the past few months, the statement of senior Congress leaders in the state about issues like the National Register of Citizens and Citizenship Amendment Bill is very conflicting. Also, the lobby centric politics has become so deep inside Congress party that now Gandhian principles and ideologies no longer exist in the party (sic),” he mentioned in his resignation letter.
