Lok Sabha Election: Why did Gourav Vallabh leave Congress?

Gourav Vallabh, a spokesman for the Congress, has left the party, claiming dissatisfaction with its current direction. Vallabh bemoaned the party’s seeming lack of direction and its apparent hatred for India’s native religious traditions in a social media post.

“I am concerned with the Congress party’s current directionless course. I am unable to endorse anti-Sanatan chants or consistently criticize the nation’s wealth makers. As a result, I am leaving my primary membership in the Congress party as well as all of my posts.,” Vallabh told the media.

Gourav Vallabh mailed a two-page resignation letter to Mallikarjun Kharge, the head of the Congress party.

“I am feeling emotional. My heart is heavy. There’s a lot I wish to express, write, and share. However, my principles forbid me from uttering anything that might cause harm to others. Nevertheless, today, I am presenting my thoughts to you because I firmly believe that concealing the truth is also an offence, and I refuse to be involved in it,” he wrote in the letter.

In the 2023 Rajasthan assembly election, Vallabh contested from the Udaipur seat. Nonetheless, the BJP candidate won handily, winning by a margin of more than 32,000 votes.

In 2019, Vallabh participated in his first poll from Jamshedpur East in Jharkhand. With over 18,000 votes, he finished third behind Saryu Roy and the then-chief minister, Raghubar Das.

In addition, Gourav Vallabh claimed that the Congress party is departing from the “fundamental principle of the party” and heading in the wrong way.

“These days the party is moving in the wrong direction. On one hand, we talk about the caste-based census and on the other hand, the party seems to oppose the entire Hindu society. This style of working gives a misleading message to the public that the party is a supporter of a particular religion only. This is against the basic principles of Congress,” he said.
