Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Friday resigned from all positions including primary membership of Congress Party.
Blaming Rahul Gandhi for Congress’s downfall, Azad in a letter addressed to Sonia Gandhi stated: “Unfortunately, after the entry of Rahul Gandhi into politics and particularly after January 2013 when he was appointed as the Vice President by you, the entire consultative mechanism which existed earlier was demolished by him.”
“All senior and experienced leaders were sidelined and new coterie of inexperienced sycophants started runing the affairs of the party,” he added.
This happened days after Azad resigned from the Jammu and Kashmir Congress’ political affairs committee and the chairmanship of the campaign committee shortly after being appointed.
Azad, the leader of the rebel G-23, was passed up for candidacy to the Upper House by the party.
