Gourav Vallabh, the National spokesperson of the Congress party, announced his resignation from the primary membership of the party on Thursday morning.

In a social media post announcing his resignation, Gourav Vallabh expressed his discomfort with the functioning of the party.

In a post on X, Gaurav wrote, "The directionless path the Congress party is currently taking makes me uncomfortable. I cannot support anti-Sanatan slogans nor can I criticize the country's wealth creators day in and day out. Therefore, I am resigning from all positions and the primary membership of the Congress party."

In his resignation letter addressed to Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, Vallabh wrote, "I am feeling emotional. My heart is heavy. There's a lot I wish to express, write, and share. However, my principles forbid me from uttering anything that might cause harm to others. Nevertheless, today, I am presenting my thoughts to you because I firmly believe that concealing the truth is also an offense, and I refuse to be involved in it."

Expressing his discomfort with the party's recent stance, he said, "Sir, I am a finance professor. Upon joining the Congress party, I was appointed as a national spokesperson. I have effectively conveyed the party's positions on various issues to the esteemed citizens of our country. However, I have recently been feeling uneasy about the party's stance."

Party's silence on its allies disrespecting Sanatan is like giving implicit approval

Questioning the party's silence on anti-Sanatan statements by alliance partners, he wrote, "I am troubled by the Congress party's stance on the consecration of Lord Ram in Ayodhya. As a Hindu by birth and a teacher by profession, this position of the party has consistently unsettled me. Many individuals associated with the party and its alliances speak against Sanatan Dharma, and the party's silence on this matter is like giving implicit approval."

Gourav Vallabh's resignation came a day after boxer Vijender Singh left the Congress to join the ruling BJP at the party headquarters in Delhi on Wednesday.

Sanjay Nirupam set to join Shiv Sena

The trend of Congress leaders departing from the party ahead of the Lok Sabha elections appears set to continue. The Mumbai Congress suffered a significant setback after expelling former MP Sanjay Nirupam due to indiscipline and making statements against the party. Sanjay Nirupam had previously criticized the Congress's state leadership in Maharashtra regarding a seat-sharing disagreement with the Shiv Sena.

Nirupam has suggested he will announce his future plans on April 4, fueling speculation that he might join either the BJP or the Shiv Sena led by Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde.
