Shock to congress: Women’s wing president Sushmita Dev joined TMC, resignation sent to Sonia Gandhi

New Delhi, 16 August

All India Mahila Congress President and former MP Sushmita Dev has joined TMC. He was given membership of the party by Mamta Banerjee’s nephew Abhishek Banerjee and Derek O’Brien.

Sushmita Dev has tendered her resignation from Congress today. He had informed about the resignation to Sonia Gandhi through a letter. Earlier, Sushmita Dev had also left the party’s Whatsapp group, while on Twitter also changed the bio to the former party leader.

In fact, Sushmita Dev became an MP from Silchar seat of Assam in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections by contesting on a Congress party ticket. After this she was also given the charge of All India Mahila Congress. But, the resignation of Sushmita Dev has become even more trouble for the Congress after the defeat in the Assam Legislative Assembly Assembly elections.
