Mumbai: Congress national spokesperson Kushboo Sundar resigned from the primary membership of the party on Monday, protesting that she called some leaders ‘terms of dictatorship’ and ‘repressed’ them.
Meanwhile, the party announced in Delhi that Sundar was removed from the post of All India Congress Committee spokesperson with “immediate effect”.
Sundar, a popular Tamil actor who was with the DMK before joining the National Party in 2014, sent his resignation letter to top Congress leader Sonia Gandhi.
He said, “Some elements are sitting at a high level within the party, people who have nothing to do with ground reality or public recognition are dictating terms and people like me who want to work for the party are being pushed and suppressed,” she said.
Her resignation letter was made available to media outlets stating that she was ready to join the BJP.
“Kushboo Sundar was released as AICC spokesperson with immediate effect,” Pranab Jha, secretary in-charge of AICC communications department, said in a statement.
After a long and thorough “thought process”, the actor said that he decided to end his relationship with the Congress party.
