Delhi Women Congress chief slams Rahul, Maken; steps down
New Delhi : In a huge blow to the Congress just ahead of the MCD polls, president of Delhi Mahila Congress, Barkha Singh stepped down from her post. However, she confirmed that would not quit the party.
She slammed vice president Rahul Gandhi and Delhi unit chief Ajay Maken. Earlier, former Delhi Congress chief Arvind Singh Lovely joined the BJP.
Singh claimed to be a 'loyal soldier' of the party and dismissed any plans to quit the Congress.
Delhi Congress' chief spokesperson Sharmishtha Mukherjee said that Singh was settling her personal grudges and hurting party interests at a crucial time when MCD polls are round the corner.
However, Singh, who had complained against 'neglect' of women workers in ticket distribution for the municipal elections, alleged that the voice of party workers was 'snubbed' and their grievances were not addressed.
"Singh also alleged that Delhi Congress president Maken not only misbehaved with me but also with other office bearers of Mahila Congress at his residence. When the matter was brought to the notice of Rahul Gandhi, nothing happened.
Charging the Congress vice president with not meeting party leaders, she said Gandhi was 'reluctant' to address 'issues' within the party organisation.
