"Several Congress meetings happened, but not even a single suggestion was taken," added Azad.

Notably, Azad resigned on Friday from all posts of Congress party. While resigning from the party, Azad also cited the immaturity of Rahul Gandhi whom he blamed for "demolishing the consultative mechanism" in the party.

Meanwhile, in his 5 page resignation letter, he wrote, "The Indian National Congress (INC) has lost both will and ability under the tutelage of the coterie that runs the AICC to fight for what is right for India," wrote Azad in his resignation letter to Sonia Gandhi. "It is therefore with great regret and an extremely leaden heart that I have decided to sever my half-a century-old association with the Indian National Congress."

Azad hit out at Rahul Gandhi and stated that since 2019 situation of the party worsened. 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."
