Mumbai: At a time when many senior Congress leaders are breaking ties with the party by considering Congress as a sinking ship. At the same time, Bollywood actress Urmila Matondkar's name has also been included in this list. Urmila contested from the North Mumbai Lok Sabha seat in the 2019 general elections on a Congress ticket and lost.
Urmila had accused some Congress leaders of her defeat. In this regard, she had also written a complaint letter to the party. But Urmila had alleged that some of the Congress leaders had leaked her letter to the media. Now Urmila Matondkar has issued a statement in the media announcing her resignation from the Congress.
Urmila Matondkar said in her media statement that I have resigned from the Congress. The idea of resignation came to my mind at a time when the then Mumbai Congress unit president Milind Deora did not take any action on my letter written on May 16, despite repeated attempts. They did not take any action on my letter, on the contrary, confidential things written in my letter were also leaked to the media. I thought I was cheated.
