The young & dynamic face of the Congress party, Jyotiraditya Scindia, has savagely shown his disappointment and dissatisfaction for his party by tendering his resignation to the party’s interim president, Sonia Gandhi, on Tuesday, March 10. Scindia met the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and Prime Minister Narendra Modi before publishing his resignation letter on his twitter handle.
While writing his resignation, Scindia wrote, “I am tendering my resignation from the primary membership of the Indian National Congress and as you well know, this is a path that has been drawing itself out over the last year,”

The notable section in his resignation is the date, the resignation letter shows the date as March 9, 2020 when the letter was essentially written and served to Gandhi, allegedly, the same day. However, Congress party expelled Scindia after it got the approval from the Congress party supremo, Sonia Gandhi. “Congress president has approved the expulsion of Jyotiraditya Scindia from the India National Congress with immediate effect for anti-party activities,” read the statement from the All India Congress Committee’s (AICC) General Secretary, KC Venugopal.
The internal turf between the leaders of the oldest political party of the country, has now become evident after Scindia along with alleged more than 25 Members of Legislative Assembly (MLAs) have resigned from the party’s membership.
