Congress veteran Somen Mitra's son resigns as party's Bengal general secy
''Your attitude towards me from the beginning has been pathetic. The language used by your close clique about my father and other leaders in the past has been detrimental to party unit in Bengal,'' he said ''Even after the results of May 2, I had hoped you would take necessary steps and make the rectification which would send out a message to the people of the state that Bengal Congress would fight the BJP for the opposition space.
Alas, that too never happened,'' he added.
The resignation once again brought to the fore the infighting in the faction-riddled state Congress, which failed to win a single seat in the assembly elections after joining hands with the Left Front and ISF.
Mitra said that the party witnessed an ultimate downfall in the state and there are no signs of its revival.
''The change in your tone and the narrative towards the TMC government and the chief minister of West Bengal is proof of that,'' he wrote in the letter.
Chowdhury was not immediately available for comments.
She then said that she was not consulted before the name was announced and she won't leave the Congress, forcing the BJP to change its candidate.
