Guwahati: Congress is taking out Bharat Jodo Yatra from Kanyakumari to Kashmir under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi, but the exodus of leaders from the party continues in various states and at the national level. Now the Congress has got a big setback in Assam. Kamrul Islam Chowdhury, general secretary of the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee, has left the party. He on Sunday resigned from the primary membership of the party, citing the directionless and confused leadership of the Assam Congress. Kamrul Islam sent his resignation to AICC interim president Sonia Gandhi.

“The current instability of the Congress Party in Assam due to the directionless and confused leadership of the APCC during the last few months has left no reason for me to continue as a member of the INC,” he wrote in his resignation letter. Kamrul Islam Chaudhary has expressed displeasure in his resignation letter even after no action was taken against those who cross-voted in the presidential election. He has written, ‘Party leaders did cross voting in the recently concluded presidential election. He himself accepted this. Most of the senior state leaders including APCC President Bhupen Bora publicly called such MLAs traitors, but no action was taken against them. This has disappointed thousands of grassroots workers like me, who have given their blood and sweat for the party over the years.

Kamrul Islam Choudhary has cited the above reasons as the main reason for his resignation from Congress. He was also the President of the Assam Pradesh Youth Congress and the National Secretary of the National Students’ Union of India. He has written in his resignation letter addressed to Sonia Gandhi, ‘The kind of atmosphere within the Congress party in Assam has compelled me to take this step. Due to no action taken against undisciplined leaders, the morale of the party workers has been broken. Therefore, I resign from the post of General Secretary of APCC and primary membership of Congress.

In the last few years, many veteran Congress leaders have left the party. There is also a group of disgruntled Congress leaders who demand some major changes in the party. This group has been named G-23, which consists mostly of leaders who have been the face of Congress at the national level in the past decades. G-23’s Ghulam Nabi Azad, Ashwini Kumar, Kapil Sibal, Jitin Prasad, RPN Singh have already left the party. Sunil Jakhar had also resigned from the Congress some time back. Manish Tewari is sidelined in the party. Shashi Tharoor is also a member of this group. The same G-23 had written a letter to Sonia Gandhi last year demanding a change of leadership in the Congress.
