congressNEW DELHI: Former Congress MLAs Neeraj Basoya and Naseeb Singh have resigned from the party’s primary membership days after party leader Arvinder Singh Lovely resigned from his post as Delhi Congress chief.

In separate letters to Congress chief Mallikarjun Kharge, the two leaders blamed the Congress and AAP alliance for their resignation.

In his letter, Basoya stated, “I humbly submit, that the said alliance is bringing great disrepute and embarrassment to Delhi Congress workers on a daily basis and I believe, that as a self-respecting party leader, I cannot continue to be associated with the party any more.”

This came days after Congress’ Delhi unit chief Lovely resigned from the post citing the alliance with AAP as one of the reasons.

The Congress on Tuesday appointed former MLA Devender Yadav as the interim president of its Delhi unit.

Yadav, who won from the Badli assembly constituency in Delhi in 2008 and 2013 and lost to Ajesh Yadav of AAP in 2015, is currently the AICC in-charge of Punjab.
