Lok Sabha Elections: Lok Sabha elections are to be held on all 7 seats of Delhi on May 25. Before that there is a ruckus in Delhi Congress. Angry leaders are leaving the party one by one. Meanwhile, after Arvinder Singh Lovely, now observers of two Lok Sabha seats of Delhi, Neeraj Basoya and Naseeb Singh have resigned from the party. Both the leaders, in separate letters to party president Mallikarjun Kharge, have blamed the Congress-Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) alliance primarily for leaving the party.

What did Neeraj Basoya say in the letter?

Former MLA and party observer from West Delhi parliamentary seat Neeraj Basoya said, "I am sending you this letter being distressed by the party's alliance with the Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi. Our ongoing alliance with AAP is extremely insulting, because 'AAP 'AAP has been linked to many scams in the last 7 years. Top three leaders - Arvind Jain and Manish Sisodia are already in jail on serious corruption issues like Delhi Liquor Scam and Delhi Jal Board Scam. There are allegations. I believe that as a self-respecting party leader, I can no longer be associated with the party." Basoya said in the letter, "I tender my resignation from all party posts and primary membership of the party. I thank Sonia Gandhi ji for giving me all the opportunities in the last 30 years."

Naseeb Singh gave these reasons

Former MLA and party observer for North West Delhi Naseeb Singh has expressed displeasure over the appointment of Devendra Yadav as Delhi Congress chief. He wrote in his resignation letter, "Today you have appointed Devendra Yadav as DPCC chief. He as AICC (Punjab in-charge) has run a campaign in Punjab based entirely on attacking the false agenda of Arvind Keriwal and today in Delhi Will be given the responsibility to praise and support him. Deeply saddened and insulted by the recent developments in AAP and its chief Arvind Kejriwal, I am resigning from the party.

Let us tell you that the two resignations from the party have come at a time when senior Congress leader Arvind Singh Lovely has resigned from the post of Delhi unit chief due to differences with the central leadership. Arvind Singh Lovely told in his resignation that he was against the alliance with Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Delhi. Also, in his resignation letter, Arvinder Singh Lovely had also targeted outsiders Kanhaiya Kumar and Udit Raj on two seats in Delhi.
