‘Can’t raise anti-Sanatan slogans’, says Gourav Vallabh as he quits Congress

Posted by

New Delhi: Gourav Vallabh, one of the most vocal Congress spokespersons, tenders his resignation from the primary membership of the Congress party on Thursday ahead of the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Gourav Vallabh tweets “I do not feel comfortable with the directionless way in which the Congress party is moving forward today. I can neither raise anti-Sanatana slogans nor abuse the wealth creators of the country. I am resigning from all posts and primary membership of the Congress party.”

कांग्रेस पार्टी आज जिस प्रकार से दिशाहीन होकर आगे बढ़ रही है,उसमें मैं ख़ुद को सहज महसूस नहीं कर पा रहा.मैं ना तो सनातन विरोधी नारे लगा सकता हूं और ना ही सुबह-शाम देश के वेल्थ क्रिएटर्स को गाली दे सकता.इसलिए मैं कांग्रेस पार्टी के सभी पदों व प्राथमिक सदस्यता से इस्तीफ़ा दे रहाहूं pic.twitter.com/Xp9nFO80I6

Vallabh contested from Udaipur on the Congress ticket during the Rajasthan Assembly Election held in 2023. BJP’s Tarachand Jain won the seat with a margin of 96046.

He criticised the party’s leadership for failing to connect with the grassroots level and not aligning with the vision of ‘New India.’ Expressing his disillusionment, Vallabh highlighted the party’s struggle to secure power or effectively function as an opposition. “As a result, the party is neither coming into power nor able to play a strong role as an opposition. This disappoints a worker like me. Bridging the gap between senior leaders and grassroots workers is very difficult, which is essential politically,” he added.

Vallabh lamented the party’s perceived deviation from its core values, pointing out contradictions in its stance on issues like caste-based census and inclusivity within the Hindu community. “These days, the party is moving forward in the wrong direction. On the one hand, we talk about the caste-based census, while on the other hand, there is a perception of being against the Sampurn Hindu Samaj (the entire Hindu society). This approach is misleading the public that the party is supportive only of a particular religious group. This goes against the fundamental principles of the Congress party.”

As the political landscape intensifies, attention now shifts to the upcoming Lok Sabha elections scheduled for 2024. With polling set to span seven phases from April 19 to June 1, the democratic exercise is poised to culminate in results on June 4.
