Congress expelled me after receiving my resignation letter, claims Nirupam


Former MP Sanjay Nirupam slammed the Congress leadership on Thursday, suggesting that his expulsion was orchestrated shortly after he submitted his resignation letter to the party.

Taking note of complaints of indiscipline and anti-party statements, Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge late Wednesday evening approved Nirupam’s expulsion from the party for six years with immediate effect.

On Thursday morning, former Mumbai Congress chief Nirupam in a post on X said, “Looks like, immediately after the party received my resignation letter last night, they decided to issue my expulsion. Good to see such promptness.”

In the letter to Kharge, Nirupam said, “I have finally decided to fulfil your much awaited desire and hereby announce that I chose to resign from the primary membership of the All India Congress Committee.”

Nirupam, who had aspirations for the Mumbai North West Lok Sabha constituency, expressed dissatisfaction with the party’s decision to let the Shiv Sena (UBT) claim the seat for the forthcoming parliamentary elections.
