'Good luck and goodbye Congress': former PPCC chief Sunil Jakhar as he quits party
Good luck and goodbye Congress, Jakhar said while announcing his decision to part ways with the Congress party.The former Punjab Congress chief had been upset with the party for serving him a show-cause notice on April 11.
"Good luck and goodbye Congress", former PPCC chief Sunil Jakhar said on Saturday while announcing his decision to quit the Congress that last month removed him from all party positions for alleged anti-party activities. The disgruntled leader, whose decision comes during the party's three-day 'Chintan Shivir' in Udaipur, went live on his Facebook page to make the announcement. "It is my parting gift to the party. Good luck and goodbye Congress," Jakhar said while announcing his decision to part ways with the Congress party.
Jakhar had rejected the charges against him and had said his statement was twisted and taken out of context. He had also expressed regret if anybody was hurt by his comments.
Jakhar was among the front-runners for the chief ministerial post after Amarinder Singh was unseated last year. His chances were scuttled after party leader Ambika Soni said the party should go with a Sikh face.
