Congress expels Goa’s Urfan Mulla after resignation; ex- Union minister Jaysingrao Patil quits Maharashtra BJP


New Delhi (ILNS): The Goa Pradesh Congress Committee (GPCC) has expelled its former state minority cell president Urfan Mulla from the party’s primary membership for six years with immediate effect. The expulsion order was signed by GPCC general secretary Subhash Faldesai.

“You have also shown disrespect to the Centre and state party leadership, which is not only unbecoming of a member of a party but also amounts to serious indiscipline on your part. Such action of yours clearly establishes the fact that you have indulged in anti-party activities,” stated the letter addressed to Mulla.

This came after Urfan Mulla had resigned as Goa Congress Committee Minority Chairman, on November 15, alleging lack of unity among senior party leaders in the state.

“Congress suffers lack of organisational direction and leadership. Party’s old guards in Goa miserably failed in decision making,” he had written to Sonia Gandhi.

Meanwhile, former Union minister and senior BJP leader Jaisingrao Gaikwad Patil has tendered his resignation from the party. Early morning today, he sent his resignation letter to Maharashtra BJP president Chandrakant Patil.

“I was not happy with the party leadership continuously neglecting me for over 10 years. So I have resigned from the party,” said Jaysingrao Gaikwad Patil.
