New Delhi, Jan 21: Protests, infighting becomes common whenever a party declares the candidates list. In a similar incident Congress's techie who joined the party 30 years ago, decided to quit from Congress after he was not given a ticket for the February 7 elections in Delhi.
But Sanjey Puri not only left the party but also took the state website and the online portal of Congress's national mouthpiece Sandesh which has left the party members angry. But what has really left the party red-faced is that on Tuesday also shut down its state website and the online portal of its national mouthpiece Sandesh.
The websites dpcc.co.in and congresssandesh.com were not working and displays the following message whenever a visitor goes there, "Sorry for inconvenience.
This site with doman name DPCC.CO.IN was designed, developed and maintained by Shri Sanjay Puri since 2008 (Member Congress Campaign Committee, DPCC, 2015). He withdraws the services after the resignation from his primary membership of Indian National Congress on 19th January, 2015."
The message continued: "This site with doman name DPCC.CO.IN was designed, developed and maintained by Shri Sanjay Puri since 2008 (Member Congress Campaign Committee, DPCC, 2015). He withdraws the services after the resignation from his primary membership of Indian National Congress on 19th January, 2015."
At a time when Congress is already trying to come at par with other parties in the Delhi battlefield, this taking down of the website will be a big loss as well embarrassment for the party.
Though the sites are still down, but Congress is claiming that all the problems have been solved between the party and Puri after Puri reportedly met the Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
However, reports are also saying that Puri will contest the elections as an independent candidate from Janakpuri. against BJP's Jagdish Mukhi.
The Congress has fielded Mukhi's son-in-law Suresh Kumar as its official candidate in the constituency.
At a time when experts have already written off for the Congress in the capital poll, the oldest party is trying its best to give tough competition to the opponents.
Reportedly, the party is contemplating to field BJP leader Jagdish Mukhi's son-in-law against him. Congress wants Suresh Kumar to fight against his father in law from the Janakpuri Assembly seat.
With this new development, it is being believed that critics may get ample ammunitions to attack BJP stalwart Jagdish Mukhi saying, if a leader can't set his own house in order, how he can manage the whole constituency.
