Kolkata: Former West Bengal Congress chief Somen Mitra’s son and Pradesh Congress Committee general secretary Rohan Mitra on Wednesday tendered resignation from his post.
Claiming that West Bengal Congress chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury is responsible for the downfall of the party in West Bengal. Rohan said that alliance with ISF in the recently concluded Assembly election had led to the poll debacle for Congress.
“You were the one who went to Furfura to talk to Abbas, you have opened the doors for the alliance with ISF, even after the humiliation at the brigade rally on February 28, you still carried on with the alliance which you now deny”, said Rohan.
In his letter to Congress chief, Rohan said, “The sycophants surrounding you have not only brought your downfall but also led to the ultimate downfall of the party in the state with no visible signs of revival in near future.”
Rohan also held Adhir responsible for the party’s loss of Berhampore seat in Murshidabad and refused to work under Adhir’s leadership.
Notably, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury is the Congress MP from Berhampore.
Mitra also mentioned that he resigned from his post stating that he was ‘humiliated’ by West Bengal Congress chief Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury.
Slamming Adhir, Rohan further wrote, “Your fragile ego could not handle your removal from the post of Pradesh Congress Chair Presidents back then and you decided to take it on me.”
“I congratulate you on your continued reign as the Pradesh president and the ‘Adhir Sena’ which you have founded over the Indian National Congress in West Bengal. This is your legacy,” further mentioned the letter.
