Sunil Jakhar had been upset with the Congress leadership ever since the party took action against him for alleged anti-party activities.

Former Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar on Saturday resigned from the party, hours after removing all references to the Congress from his social media handles. Jakhar had been upset with the Congress leadership ever since the party took action against him for alleged anti-party activities.

The party decided to remove Jakhar from all party posts for two years a fortnight ago on the recommendation of the disciplinary action committee. The Congress leader had since then been considering his political options.

Earlier on Saturday, he went live on Facebook with his ‘dil ki baat’, following which he dropped Congress from his social media handles.

Jakhar had accused the Congress high command of listening to a certain Punjab leader on the matter of the CM’s appointment after Captain Amarinder Singh’s departure. He said even after three generations of his family had served in Congress for 50 years, he was “stripped of all party posts” for “not toeing the party line.”
