New Delhi: In a major setback for Congress ahead of assembly election in the state, former Haryana party chief Ashok Tanwar resigned from the primary membership of the party.
In his resignation letter dated October 4, Tanwar said, “The Indian National Congress is going through an existential crisis, not because of its political opponents, but because of serious internal contradictions.”
He has also attacked Congress stating in the letter, “Now the congress is the anti-thesis of democracy, plagued by feudal attitudes and medieval conspiracies.”
Earlier, Tanwar had resigned from all election committees of the Congress, alleging irregularities in ticket distribution for Haryana assembly poll. He also lashed at the party by saying that the party had become “Hooda Congress” in Haryana.
His decision to quit has come after he protested outside Sonia Gandhi’s residence and during the protest he had alleged that tickets were being distributed on whims and fancies and were being “sold”, ignoring those who had worked for years.
