Former Congress legislator Jang Bahadur Singh on Sunday said that his reason for leaving the party were the policies which displeased him. According to him, the party has failed to play its role as a strong Opposition which resulted in the poor performance in the assembly election. PTI quoted Bahadur saying, ” Being displeased with the policies and ways of the party, I have tendered my resignation. The party which could bag only seven seats in last assembly election has failed to play its role as a strong opposition.”

Singh, on whether he would join any other party said that his decision will always be related to the region. “Wait and watch, my decision will always be related to people of my region,” said Singh. Singh declared to move out of the Congress after the party’s vice president, Rahul Gandhi, concluded his three-day visit on October 6.

Senior Congress leader Mani Shankar Aiyar too reacted to a question by media about Rahul Gandhi taking over from Sonia Gandhi as the president of the Congress party. He said that only two people could become the next President of the Congress party. ANI quoted Aiyar saying, ”I think only two people can be Congress President, mother or son. Rahul already said he is ready to contest election.”
