New Delhi: Days after resigning from all posts of the Indian National Congress party, the senior politician Ghulam Nabi Azad on Monday said that he was “forced” to leave.
As the senior politician was speaking to media persons in New Delhi, as per the news agency ANI, Azad said, “I have been forced to leave my home.”
Quoting Azad, the report said, “Modi is an excuse, they have had an issue with me since the G23 letter was written. They never wanted anyone to write to them, question them.”
“Several (Congress) meetings happened, but not even a single suggestion was taken,” the news agency quoted Azad further saying.
Azad on Friday resigned from all posts of the party citing the “immaturity” of Rahul Gandhi whom he blamed for “demolishing the consultative mechanism” in the party.
In a hard-hitting 5 page note to party interim president Sonia Gandhi, Azad claimed that a coterie runs the party while she was just a nominal head and all the major decisions were taken by “Shri Rahul Gandhi or rather worse his security guards and PAs”.
The development comes days after Azad resigned from the organizational post of Jammu and Kashmir.
Hitting out at Rahul Gandhi, Azad wrote, “Since the 2019 elections the situation in the party has only worsened. After. Rahul Gandhi stepped down in a ‘huff’ and not before insulting all the senior Party functionaries who have given their lives to the party in a meeting of the extended Working Committee, you took over as interim President. A position that you have continue to hold even today for the past three years.”
Several politicians from Jammu and Kashmir on Saturday met veteran politician Ghulam Nabi Azad, who is planning to launch a new national party, a day after tendering resignations from all posts of Congress.
