New Delhi: Former Union Law Minister Ashwini Kumar on Tuesday resigned from the Congress after a 46-year-long association with the party.
In a letter to Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi, Kumar said, “After considering the matter, I have concluded that in the present circumstances and to the best of my dignity, I will best support the larger national cause outside the party.”
He further added that he looks forward to actively pursuing public causes inspired by the idea of transformational leadership based on the promise of liberal democracy envisioned by our freedom fighters.
“Accordingly, I am leaving the party after a long association of 46 years and hope to actively pursue public issues inspired by the idea of a transformational leadership based on the promise of liberal democracy envisioned by our freedom fighters,” he said.
“Having my respectful honor, I thank you for your attention to me in the past and wish you good health in the years to come,” he said.
