Khushbu Sundar resigns from Congress, likely to join BJP
In her resignation letter to Sonia Gandhi, Sundar wrote that people like her who want to work for the party are being "suppressed" by "few elements seated at higher levels within the party." "People who have no connectivity with the ground reality or public recognition are dictating terms," she wrote.
The news comes days ahead of assembly elections in Tamil Nadu. She is in Delhi today and it is likely that she will be meeting the BJP's central team in the national capital.
Her rift with Congress was first reported in July this year when she had supported the Centre's new education policy. She had even tweeted an apology to party leader Rahul Gandhi for her differing views.
Speculation intensified over her departure after she posted a tweet on Saturday saying “change is inevitable.” “Many see a change in me. Well as you age, you evolve n grow, learn n unlearn, perceptions change, likes n dislikes too, thoughts n ideas take a new shape, dreams are new, you understand the difference between like n love, between right n wrong. Change is inevitable. Happy eve,” Sundar had tweeted on Saturday.
Khushbu Sundar had joined Congress in 2014 and before that, she was a part of DMK since 2010.
