"There is no doubt that the Lok Sabha elections were a big defeat for Congress. The party leadership should have resigned but instead this grip that the Nehru Gandhi family has got is suffocating everybody in the party. That is why Vasan has chosen to resign," Swamy told ANI.
In a fresh crisis for the grand-old-party of India in Tamil Nadu, senior party leader and former Union Minister GK Vasan resigned from the party on Monday.
The former Union Shipping Minister made the official announcement on Monday while holding a press conference in Chennai and said he will float a new political party.
"Will be a part of a new political party and its name will be decided in a public meeting in Trichy in the coming days. We want to give Tamil Nadu a political alternative," said Vasan at the presser.
With the assembly elections less than two years away in Tamil Nadu and the Congress is looking a sinking ship across the nation, politicians are perhaps rethinking their politics from a new perspective.
