Setback for Congress | Following the resignation of Delhi Pradesh Congress Chief Arvinder Singh Lovely, the Delhi unit of the Congress faced another blow on Wednesday. Two former MLAs, Neeraj Basoya and Nasseb Singh, announced their resignation from the primary membership of the party. This development has raised uncertainties regarding the party's preparations for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

In a letter addressed to Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge, Nasseb Singh said, "Today, you have appointed Davinder Yadav as DPCC Chief. He as AICC (In-Charge Punjab) has run a campaign in Punjab solely based on attacking Arvind Keiriwal's false agenda and today, in Delhi he will be mandated to praise and support AAP and its Chief Arvind Kejriwal. Being deeply pained and humiliated at the recent developments in the Party, I resign from the party..."


Neeraj Basoya, in a letter to Congress President Kharge, said, "Our continued alliance, with AAP is extremely humiliating given that the AAP has been associated with numerous scams in the past 7 years. The top 3 Leaders of the AAP-Arvind Kejriwal, Satyendra Jain and Manish Sisodia are already in jail. AAP has been accused of serious corruption charges on various issues such as the Delhi Liquor Scam and Delhi Jal Board Scam."

"By allying with AAP despite the above position, it is appearing that the Congress Party is attempting to give a clean chit to AAP and appreciate the deceitful propaganda of the development of AAP. I can no longer be a part of any such attempt," he said.

"I hereby tender my resignation from all Party Posts and the primary membership of the Party. I thank Smt Sonia Gandhi Ji for giving a common man like me, all the opportumt1es in the last 30 years," Basoya further said.

On April 28 Delhi Congress president Arvinder Singh Lovely resigned from his post.

"The Delhi Congress Unit was against an alliance with a party which was formed on the sole basis of leveling false, fabricated and malafide corruption charges against the Congress Party. Despite that, the Party made a decision to ally with the AAP in Delhi...," Arvinder Singh Lovely wrote in his resignation letter.

In the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the Congress will be contesting on three seats in Delhi, while the AAP will be contesting on four seats. The Congress has nominated JP Aggarwal from Chandni Chowk, Kanhaiya Kumar from North East Delhi, and Udit Raj from Delhi North West. The elections in Delhi are scheduled for May 25, with the results for all Lok Sabha seats set to be declared on June 2.
