Chandigarh (Haryana) [India], Oct 5 (ANI): Stating that the party has drifted away from its basic principle and ideology, former Haryana Pradesh Congress chief, Ashok Tanwar announced his resignation from the primary membership of Congress on Saturday.
"Now the Congress is the anti-thesis of democracy, plagued by feudal attitudes and medieval conspiracies...Congress visibly have drifted away from its basic principles and ideology. My experience of last few years has been that internal democracy in the party is being killed by selfish interests of a few lobbies", he said in his resignation letter.
Tanwar's resignation comes ahead of assembly elections in Haryana this month, for which he was also among the party's star campaigner.
Tanwar tweeted his resignation letter on Saturday and he wrote, "After long deliberations with party workers and for reasons well known to all Congressman and public, I hereby resign from the primary membership of the INC India."
