Another jolt to congress as TPCC leader Abid Rasool Khan quits party

Hyderabad, Nov.16 : TPCC vice-president Abid Rasool Khan has submitted resignation from primary membership of party and party post for injustice caused to the Minorities in the allotment of party seats for December 7 Assembly elections and corrupt practices of AICC general secretary and in-charge of Telangana party affairs Kuntia.
In a letter addressed to Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Thursday, a copy of which was released to the media on Friday, Abid Rasool Khan has stated he was resigning from the party “with a heavy heart” as he was deeply hurt with the appointment of Shaik Abdullah Sohail, a person with shady background as chairman of Minority Department. He also stated two working presidents were appointed from Reddy community, one each from BC, SC and Kamma but none from the Muslim community which is 15 to 18 percent in the population whose votes are needed for victory in the elections. He also stated that land grabbers, criminals and paratroopers from other parties were being given prominence over genuine and loyal workers in the distribution of party tickets.
Abid Rasool Khan also reminded the Congress supremo that he had faced threats to his life while protecting the ideology and stand of Congress as the spokesperson/media panelist. He also said he was arrested while protesting against killing of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.
