Congress leader Jogesh Singh resigned from the post of MLA and primary membership of the party

Bhubaneswar:18/1/19: The Congress leader Jogesh Singh today resigned from the post of MLA and primary membership of the party following suspension.

The Sundergarh MLA tendered his resignation to the AICC President Rahul Gandhi on ‘moral ground’.

“I tender my resignation from the Indian National Congress party on moral ground. I also tender my resignation from the post of the Member of Odisha Legislative Assembly,” Singh wrote in a letter to the party supremo today.

He expressed his displeasure on the party for placing him under suspension without taking any clarification from him after he announced to skip Rahul Gandhi’s meeting scheduled on Jan 25 in Bhubaneswar.

“I have served the Indian National Congress for a period of more than 17 years with all sincerity at my level best. Without any communication to me or my office, suspending me from the Indian National Congress party may be assumed that the party does not require my service anymore,” he mentioned in his resignation letter.

He questioned how his pre-scheduled engagements, for which he expressed his difficulties to attend the AICC President’s meeting, and praise for CM Naveen Patnaik could be termed as ‘anti-party’ activities.

Notably, the Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee on Thursday had suspended Jogesh Singh from the party after he praised Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik.
