Congress loses a crucial wicket in UP: Jagdambika Pal resigns from the party
Veteran Congress leader Jagdambika Pal, the former CM of Uttar Pradesh and a member of the 15th Lok Sabha has dramatically left Congress. Pal had already warned a week before that if he won't be paid his right dues, he might quit the party. Now he in reality had resigned from the Lok Sabha and quit the primary membership of the party.

Pal, the former president of the UP state unit of the Congress, seems has played the card at the opportune time accounting a heavy loss to the Congress in the forthcoming elections. He has accused the Congress of not giving him the due that he deserves and he was being 'humiliated' by the party.

65-year-old Pal, as reported by The Hindu, said, "I met Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar today and tendered my resignation. I have resigned from my Lok Sabha seat as well as from the party."

At the age of 65 when I am leaving Congress party, it is not because I want to get something. But for something I am feeling, he added.

Without naming the Congress scion, he said that the emerging leadership of the Congress perhaps does not require senior leaders like him. He claimed that many like him are not being able to communicate and give their views.

New Delhi may witness many political storms in the running week. Resignation of Pal is just a trailer. There are strong rumours that Pal will fly in the wind's direction and soon declare merger of his political future in Modi-wave.
