Lok Sabha Election-2024: Congress Faces Triple Setback as This Leader Also Quits Party After Vijender Singh and Sanjay Nirupam Amidst Poll Preparations

In a span of 24 hours, the Congress  has been dealt a series of blows as prominent figures sever ties with the party. Following the departure of international boxer Vijender Singh and former Congress spokesperson Sanjay Nirupam, another leader has exited the grand old party, citing reasons for his departure.

Gourav Vallabh, who had been an active voice within the Congress and a spokesperson, has now joined the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). In his resignation letter, spanning two pages, Vallabh expressed his discontent with the current trajectory of the Congress, citing a lack of direction within the party.

Stating his inability to align with certain ideologies, Vallabh declared, "I can neither raise anti-Sanatan slogans nor abuse wealth creators day in and day out. Therefore, I resign from all posts and primary membership of the party."

Vallabh, who ventured into politics by contesting the 2019 elections from Jharkhand's Jamshedpur East, faced defeat but continued his political journey by contesting in the Rajasthan assembly elections in 2023, albeit unsuccessfully.

This departure comes on the heels of Vijender Singh's defection to the BJP, further exacerbating the challenges faced by the Congress as it gears up for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections-2024.

With the voting scheduled to commence in seven phases starting April 11, and the counting of votes set for June 4, these successive exits pose significant hurdles for the Congress party amidst the electoral fray.
