Senior Congress Leader Annu Tandon Quits Party, Blames "Self-Branding And Too Busy In Social Media" State Leaders
LUCKNOW || Senior Congress leader and former Lok Sabha Annu Tandon on Thursday quit the party after resigning from the primary membership. In a statement released to the media, the leader blamed the lack of coordination within the state unit of the party for her decision to exit the party.
While thanking the party leadership, including both party presidents - Sonia and Rahul Gandhi, she had worked with, Tandon said it was with a heavy heart that she had arrived at this decision.
Recalling her 15-year-old association with the party, Tandon further said that the "misalignment between the state leadership" and her, she added further, she saw no scope for work left. She also went on to accuse the state leaders of being too busy with social media management and self-branding".
Tandon further stated that she had a talk with party general secretary in-charge of the state, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, on the matters she was disturbed at, and that she had assured her that the Congress president is fully apprised of the situation too. "However, we have been unable to resolve a forward part that is amenable to all parties concerned", he pointed out.
She also said that she had requested the Congress president to accept her resignation immediately and mused that her future would be decided in consultation with her workers and well wishers. She ended however on a sad note by saying that "my faith in the party has been shattered".
