Assam Assembly Election 2021: Sushmita Dev Didn't Resign Over Seat-Sharing Talks, Says Congress
The Congress in Assam today denied reports of its leader Sushmita Dev resigning from the party after she reportedly walked out of a meeting on seat-sharing for the state election.
"It has been brought to the notice of the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee that speculative news about resignation of President, All India Mahila Congress Sushmita Dev is doing the rounds on television and web portals. We want to make it clear that Sushmita Dev has not resigned from the party," Congress spokesperson Bobbeeta Sharma said in a statement.
Earlier, Ms Dev walked out of a Congress meeting on selection of candidates from a hotel in Guwahati, party sources said.
Her party supporters in hometown Barak Valley protested against Congress leaders who supported allotting more seats to ally AIUDF in Barak Valley.
The Congress-led "Mahajoth" or grand alliance has AIUDF, BPF, CPI(M), CPI, CPI(ML) and Anchalik Gana Morcha as its constituents.
