Back BackIn major setback, Ponnala Lakshmaiah quits Congress ahead of Telangana Assembly election

Senior politician Ponnala Lakshmaiah resigned from the Congress on Friday – mere weeks before the Telangana Assembly elections. The former Telangana PCC chief citied ‘recent political developments’ and an ‘unjust environment’ in a lengthy missive to Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge. The resignation came as a major setback for the Congress as it gears up to release its list of candidates for the November 30 elections.

“It is with a heavy heart that I announce my decision to discontinue my association with the party. I have reached a point where I feel that I can no longer thrive in such an unjust environment. I extend my heartfelt gratitude to all those who have supported me in my various party roles over the years," he wrote.
