Urmila Matondkar, the actress joined the Congress party, a few months back. Today, she quit the party citing that she has been used for petty in-house politics. The 44-year-old actress got a ticket and contested in the Lok Sabha election, in just a few months after joining the party, but had lost to BJP. However, she managed to get 2, 41, 431 votes in the elections. Maharashtra Assembly polls are supposed to be held in coming October and Urmila’s resignation came as a shock.
Urmila thought to resign when her request was not heard in this May. Urmila had complained about Sandesh Kondvilkar and Bhushan Patil, who were the close aides of
Sanjay Nirupam, who was once the Congress President in Mumbai. She complained about their conduct, stated Urmila. Urmila didn’t say that she quit the politics, but said that she will continue serving the people. Let’s wait for the Party President to reply!
