Addressing Congress National President CR Kesavan in his resignation, CR Kesavan has written that leaving behind a successful career abroad, I returned to India to serve my country. After this I joined Congress in 2001 considering the ideology of the party.
The journey thereafter was challenging and fascinating. I had the opportunity to serve as the Vice President [in the capacity of Rajya Mantri ke Pad] of Rajiv Gandhi Rashtriya Yuva Vikas Sansthan at Sriperumbudur, Member of Prasar Bharati Board, National Council Member of Indian Youth Congress and National Media.
I sincerely thank the party and Sonia Gandhi for all the responsibilities entrusted to me over the years in the government and organization. I have made friendships here that will last.
Kesavan further wrote in the resignation letter that I am truly saddened to say that for some time now I have not seen any remnant of the values that motivated me to work with dedication for the party for more than two decades. done This is the reason why I recently declined an organizational responsibility at the national level and even refrained from participating in the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
He wrote that it is time for me to chart a new path and therefore I resign from the primary membership of the Congress Party with immediate effect. I have also submitted my resignation as a trustee of the Tamil Nadu Congress Committee Charitable Trust to the appropriate authority. He said that there are speculations of someone else going to the party but I have not talked to anyone and honestly I don’t know what will happen next.
I will endeavor in good faith to serve my country through a political platform, a platform where I can firmly uphold the integrity and ideals of public life.
