Congress leader Gourav Vallabh joins BJP, calls Congress “directionless”

New Delhi, Apr 4 (UNI) Hours after resigning from the Congress, Congress party spokesperson Prof Gourav Vallabh on Thursday joined the BJP in New Delhi in the presence of General Secretary Vinod Tawad and other senior leaders at the party headquarters.

Before joining the BJP, Gourav Vallabh resigned from the Congres, citing the grand old party as “directionless” and expressed his disagreement over the party’s view on the Ram temple consecration.

In a letter to Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on Thursday, Vallabh wrote that the party “is not able to adjust itself with the youth with new ideas”.

“I am not comfortable with the directionless way in which the Congress party is moving ahead. I can neither raise anti-Sanatan slogans nor can I abuse the wealth creators of the country morning and evening. Hence, I am resigning from all the posts and primary membership of the Congress party” he wrote.

Vallabh also wrote that over the past few years, the party has failed to ‘realize’ expectations of ‘New India.’

Former Bihar Congress President Anil Sharma and RJD leader Upendra Prasad also joined the BJP.
