LS Polls 2024: ‘Not comfortable with Cong…,’ says Gourav Vallabh as he resigns from party

Lok Sabha Polls 2024: In a major setback to Congress, party’s prominent leader Gourav Vallabh resigned from the primary membership of the party ahead of the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections 2024. 

Taking to his X handle, Gourav Vallabh posted his two-page resignation letter, which he sent to party President Mallikarjun Kharge.


Gourav Vallabh further added that he was quitting the party as he was not feeling "comfortable with the directionless way in which the Congress party is moving forward".

"I do not feel comfortable with the directionless way in which the Congress party is moving forward today. I can neither raise anti-Sanatana slogans nor abuse the wealth creators of the country. I am resigning from all posts and primary membership of the Congress party," Vallabh said.

"These days the party is moving in the wrong direction. On one hand, we talk about the caste-based census and on the other hand, the party seems to oppose the entire Hindu society. This style of working gives a misleading message to the public that the party is a supporter of a particular religion only. This is against the basic principles of Congress," he said.

Gourav Vallabh contested the Rajasthan assembly election from the Udaipur constituency in 2023. 
However, the BJP candidate won with a comfortable margin of over 32,000 votes.
