“The condition of the party will never improve if Rahul Gandhi continues to lead the party,” Kurmi told reporters after submitting his resignation to the Speaker of the Assembly on Friday. “We have opposed the alliance with the All India United Democratic Front (AIUDF) in the recent Assembly elections and we see that the Congress suffered a humiliating defeat due to the alliance in Upper Assam.”
Later, Congress expelled him from the main party membership. Kurmi is the third leader of the Assam Congress to leave the party in recent months. Before the Assembly elections, Ajanta Neog and Rajdeep Goala had left the party. Neog is now a minister in the current government. “I feel that the leadership of Congress in New Delhi and in Assam does not want young people to grow up in the party. They do not want people from backward communities, such as the tea tribe, to show up, so I decided to resign from Congress,” he said. Kurmi.
