Bhubaneswar: Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee (OPCC) Working President and former MP Pradeep Majhi today resigned from primary membership of the party.
He has sent his resignation to party’s interim President Sonia Gandhi.
Citing the reason of his resignation, the former MP said he had a great desire to serve people while being in Congress, but the party lacks enthusiasm to do the same. The party has almost lost its credibility which may take a long time to revive, he added.
“With extreme pain, I have decided to resign from the primary membership of Indian National Congress. I had joined the party with utmost enthusiasm to serve the needy. Accordingly, the party also gave me ample opportunities along with a top position. The organization of the party was extremely well managed by your dynamic leadership which has gradually declined due to recalcitrant persons occupying the pivot posts at different levels,” he stated in the letter.
“I shall however perform my duties as per your ideology and serve the people with utmost satisfaction,” he added.
