New Delhi: Congress MLA in Meghalaya Dr M Ampareen Lyngdoh from East Shillong Constituency, on Monday tendered her resignation from the party.
In a letter addressed to Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, she wrote, “Recent developments within the party have led me to believe that it has lost its sense of direction. There has been a pressing need for the party and its leadership to reflect on this. Sincere and honest attempts to lead such self-introspection, I believe, have failed.”
“The party has lost touch with the people of Meghalaya, and I no longer believe it is the best platform for me to serve them. It is with deep regret, therefore, that I am writing to tender my formal resignation from primary membership in the Indian National Congress, effective immediately,” she added.
I have tendered my formal resignation from.
