Congress Faces Setback as 400 Workers Quit in Rajasthan

Rajasthan: The Congress party in Rajasthan is reeling from a significant blow as nearly 400 party workers tendered their resignations from primary membership, plunging the organization into crisis, according to party sources.

Alliance Decision Sparks Unrest

The turmoil follows the Congress’s decision to form an alliance with the Rashtriya Loktantrik Party (RLP) for the Nagaur Lok Sabha seat, leaving it vacant for the RLP. This move saw Nagaur MP and RLP Chief Hanuman Beniwal fielded by the Congress.

Suspensions and Fallout

Adding to the chaos, three Congress workers were suspended for six years on allegations of campaigning for the BJP candidate in Nagaur. This action, prompted by a complaint from Beniwal, led to uproar among Congress workers in Nagaur, culminating in the resignations of the suspended leaders.

Outcry Against Alliance

Tejpal Mirdha, one of the suspended leaders, criticized the Congress’s decision to ally with the RLP without consulting the local state unit. He accused Beniwal of being instrumental in undermining the Congress in Nagaur, leading to widespread disillusionment among party workers.

Allegations of Autocracy

Mirdha lamented the alleged lack of transparency and consultation within the party, highlighting the imposition of alliances and unilateral decisions by a select few. He urged the Congress high command to take heed of the discontent brewing within the party ranks in Rajasthan.

While some Congress workers dismiss the resignations as part of BJP propaganda, the mass exodus signals deep-seated discontent within the party, raising questions about internal cohesion and leadership decisions.

As the Congress grapples with internal dissent and the fallout from its alliance decisions, the party faces a critical juncture in Rajasthan.
