Barkha Singh Quits From the Post of Delhi Women Congress President

Barkha Singh Quits From the Post of Delhi Women Congress President

In another jolt to Delhi Congress ahead of Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) Elections, its women's wing chief Barkha Shukla Singh on Thursday resigned from the post.

"He (Rahul) needs treatment". Why does Rahul Gandhi shy away from meeting party leaders who ask him questions? However, she made it clear that she would remain a "loyal soldier" of Congress.

"They (senior leaders), however, said that this type of behaviour was unacceptable. The same was brought to the notice of Rahul Gandhi, but our plea fell on deaf ears". "Party does not belong to one person it belongs to its workers", she tweeted.

The leader further said that Maken had not given tickets to any woman for the MCD polls. Asked if he was quitting, she said: "Not to my knowledge".

"In an organisation where I myself am unsafe, how will I empower other women in that organisation?" When we reached his residence, we were told that he is busy. "The one pertinent question we need to ask is why is Rahul Gandhi hiding?"

The Congress worker added that on the same day, Rahul Gandhi was seen partying at Shangri-La Hotel.

Pence assures Japan: America is with you '100 per cent'
North Korea will continue to test missiles on a weekly, monthly and yearly basis, Vice Foreign Minister Han Song-ryol has said. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi repeated China's line that the crisis could only be resolved by diplomacy.

With utmost regret I have to say that the Congress Party under the leadership of Mr Rahul Gandhi and Mr Ajay Maken have only used the issue of empowerment of women and women security to gather votes and it means nothing to them.

Barkha has alleged that party vice-president Rahul Gandhi does not listen to anyone and he has failed to run the organization in right direction.

Singh, who was also Chairperson of the Delhi Commission for Women, made it clear that she was only quitting from her post and not from the membership of the Congress.

She also had a complaint common to several Congress leaders who have rebelled in recent days - Mr Gandhi's disinterest in their problems. Unlike senior leader Arvinder Singh Lovely, who quit the Congress and joined the BJP earlier this week, Ms Singh has not left the party. Yet.
