“Having been a primary member of the Congress party for the last 18 years, it is now time for me to move on. 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.
While my aim and purpose remain the same as it has always been from the very beginning to serve the people of my state and country, I believe I am unable to do this anymore within this party.
To reflect and realise the aspirations of my people and my workers, I believe it best I now look ahead at a fresh start,” the letter said.
After the Congress leader sent his resignation letter, the Congress approved the expulsion of Jyotiraditya Scindia for anti-party activities.
