“No issues with Sonia & Rahul Gandhi”: former Cong MP Sushmita Dev, after joining Trinamool
She may be pitched as the face of Trinamool in Assam.
Sushmita Dev, who resigned from the Indian National Congress on Sunday and joined the Trinamool Congress the following day, did not elaborate on her reasons for the switch. She however, said that she has “no issues with Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi”.
Dev today said at a press conference that “I have explained it in my resignation letter (to the party president).” She added: “I had a long association with the Congress, and the party gave me a lot of opportunities. In my 30 years in politics, I haven’t demanded anything from the Congress high command. I hope the Congress president forgives me for my shortcomings”. Sushmita Dev is daughter of veteran Congress leader Santosh Mohan Deb.
She joined the Trinamool Congress on Monday, and may be pitched as the face of the party in Assam.
