Urmila Matondkar Quits Congress, Blames "Petty In-House Politics"



Urmila Matondkar has resigned from the Congress citing concerns over “petty in-house politics” within the Mumbai unit of the party. The 45-year-old actor-turned-politician, who unsuccessfully contested the Mumbai North Lok Sabha seat during national election in April-May, also expressed concern over “an act of blatant betrayal” in connection with a letter sent to former Mumbai Congress President Milind Deora.

Good thing done, Urmila! As a person from Maharashtra, it is better to Join MNS, led by Raj Thakre Saheb. Please Join, MNS and strengthen Raj Thakre Saheb. I am sure you will be welcomed with respect.
