Lucknow: Senior Uttar Pradesh Congress leader and convenor of the Brahmin Mahasabha Pandit Vinod Mishra has resigned from the party on Friday.
The former general secretary of the UP Congress, who also held the in-charge of Lucknow district during Raj Babbar period, Mr Mishra blamed party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra for his extreme step.
Mr Mishra alleged that the Gandhi family was using the party for saving their skin from CBI and ED and hence was insulting the veteran leaders and forcing them to exit.
“The UP Congress has already been handed over to Leftist leaders and now they are managing everything which is unfortunate for the century old party and was a symbol of the freedom movement of the country,” he said.
Though denying that he would join any other political outfit, Mr Mishra said now he will devote all his time for strengthening the Brahmin Mahasabha.
