Congress’s Sikkim president had on Sunday resigned over the appointment of central committee’s in-charge for the state without any prior consultation.
Bharat Basnett, while tendering his resignation from Sikkim Pradesh Congress Committee to All India Congress Committee president Sonia Gandhi and other top leaders, had said the party has a disregard for the opinions of the local leaders.
Seasoned politician Kuljit Singh Nagra was recently appointed as AICC in-charge for Sikkim.
“The State committee has always been suffering due to such decisions of the Central committee. We are not satisfied with the decision of the party as such decision hurts our self-respect,” Basnett said.
