After being stripped of all party posts, former Punjab Congress chief Sunil Jakhar quit the party in a theatrical fashion on Saturday. In a Facebook Live stream titled 'Mann ki Baat', he bid adieu to the party thus: “Goodbye and Goodluck Congress”.

A three-time MLA and one-time MP, Jakhar removed all party references from his social media handles. He removed the Congress from his Twitter bio, and replaced the party flag as the background image of his Twitter account with the Tricolour.

Jakhar said he was heartbroken at being removed from all party posts by the Congress disciplinary committee following allegations of anti-party activities against him by certain Punjab unit leaders.

He also blamed Congress MP Ambika Soni’s statement on the “repercussions of having a Hindu chief minister in Punjab” for the party’s drubbing in the state assembly polls earlier this year.

On Rahul Gandhi, Jakhar praised the former Congress president as a “good person” and appealed to him to once again take command of the party while keeping a distance from “chaploos log” (sycophants).

Mincing no words, the disgruntled Punjab leader alleged that the three-day Chintan Shivir or brainstorming session of the Congress currently underway in Udaipur in Rajasthan was a “farce”.
