Guwahati: Assam state politics is noticing a massive landslide in the Congress faction following the Mariani Congress MLA Rupjyoti Kurmi’s decision to quit the party and join BJP.
Rupjyoti Kurmi spoke about the leadership failure of Rahul Gandhi who ignored the voice of young leaders. Kurmi has also tendered his resignation to letter to Assam Assembly Speaker Biswajit Daimary.
Rupjyoti Kurmi was quoted by news agency ANI as saying, “The Congress isn’t listening to its young leaders. Therefore, the party’s situation is worsening in all states. I’ll meet the assembly speaker and tender my resignation.”
“Rahul Gandhi is unable to shoulder leadership. If he’s at the helm, the party won’t move forward,” Rupjyoti Kurmi said while attacking the Congress leader.
“Guwahati leaders give priority to elderly leaders only. We’d told them the Congress has a good chance of coming to power this time and we shouldn’t forge an alliance with the AIUDF as it would be a mistake. It indeed was.”
The Congress and the AIUDF had announced a pre-poll alliance for the Assam assembly election which took place in April this year.
