Congress leader Milind Deora's political journey takes a new turn; Jairam Ramesh said this after his resignation

Just hours before Congress' Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra starting from Su
nday, a big leader has left the party. Youth party leader Milind Deora in Maharashtra has announced announced his resignation from the party's primary membership. He is the son of party stalwart late Murli Deora.

Posting on the social media platform X (formerly Twitter), the former Lok Sabha MP for South Mumbai reflected on the conclusion of a significant chapter in his political journey. He expressed gratitude to leaders, colleagues, and karyakartas (workers) for their unwavering support, marking the end of his family's 55-year association with the Congress.

Recent speculation in political circles suggested the likelihood of Deora joining the Shiv Sena, led by Eknath Shinde. This move comes after Deora, who was appointed as the joint treasurer of the All India Congress Committee, expressed disapproval of the Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena laying claim to the South Mumbai Lok Sabha seat. 

Notably, Arvind Sawant from the undivided Shiv Sena, now with the Thackeray faction, had defeated Deora in both the 2014 and 2019 general elections. Previously heading the Mumbai Congress and being the son of the late party stalwart Murli Deora, Milind Deora's political journey takes a new turn with this resignation.

Jairam Ramesh said this 

After the announcement of his resignation, Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh recalled his association with Milind's father Murli Deora.

Jairam Ramesh wrote, "I fondly remember my many years of association with Murli Deora. He had friends in all political parties, but he was a staunch Congressman, who always stood with the Congress Party in every difficult situation”
