Hyderabad : Former minister Danam Nagender resigned from the Congress party on Friday.
"With a heavy heart, I wish to convey that I would like to resign from the primary membership of the Congress party," Nagender announced in a press release sent to the media.
Nagender said lack of leadership, infighting and neglect of cadre have driven him to take this decision. "At the State level, according importance to section of the community has alienated the BCs, SCs and STs as well as minorities, besides creating a sense of insecurity and dissatisfaction amongst them. Further, due to to lack of coordination, lack of dialogue with the cadre and neglect of grass root leaders, has left the party rudderless and with no sense of direction," he said.
Further, he said infighting within the party, lack of leadership and disenchantment in the cadre has affected the morale of the party. "I have tried number of times to express my opinion on various issues pertaining to party restructuring as well as welfare of the backward classes. Unfortunately, the party leadership has not been able to take into cognisance my views," Nagender said.
Nagender also slammed the dilution of his role as Greater Hyderabad Congress Committee president, a post from which he was relieved last month and replaced with M. Anjan Kumar Yadav. "Deliberate attempts have been made to dilute my role which was covering 24 Assembly constituencies. In a similar situation, the Presidents of Greater Mumbai and Delhi have jurisdiction over the peripheral areas as well. Sadly in the case of GHCC, for petty gains, the control over GHCC has been a source of confusion and anarchy," he said.
