Congress leader Kripashankar Singh has resigned from the party. Singh had submitted his resignation to Congress Maharashtra in-charge Mallikarjun Kharge in Delhi. Singh was a minister of state for Home in Vilasrao Deshmukh cabinet.
The resignation of the prominent Congress leader has come days after his meeting with Maharashtra BJP vice-president Prasad Lad, who is considered a close aide of Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis. This was the second big resignation of the day in the Congress party.
Earlier in the day, actor-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar had also resigned from the Congress, blaming the petty in-house party politics.
