Mumbai Youth Congress labor chairman Suraj Singh Thakur on Wednesday tendered the party’s resignation, expressing dismay at the appointment of a “non-political and inexperienced” person as chairman of the Youth Congress from Mumbai.
This follows the appointment of Zeeshan Siddiqui as president of the Mumbai Youth Congress and Mr. Thakur as working president on August 15, 2021.
In his resignation letter, Mr Thakur said: “I was very disappointed with the recent decision and I am totally uncomfortable working with a non-partisan and inexperienced person in the key organization of Congress.”
He further expressed his disappointment, stating that his hard work and dedication has been sidelined.
“I hope you understand the dismay of a normal Karyakarta who feels neglected when the best stores are considered, who has less experience in organizing than I do,” Thakur said in his resignation letter .
Mr Thakur said he had worked as a congressional ‘foot soldier’ ââand added: ‘Coming from a middle class family, growing up in the slums of Mumbai, I joined the Congress party for my college days as a member of NSUI in 2007, hard working and dedicated for several years. “
