The pain of Azad, who had been with the Congress for 52 years, has been expressed by his five-page resignation letter. In this letter, he cited the moments spent with Sanjay Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi to Indira Gandhi from joining the Congress in 1970 and expressed his compulsion to leave the Congress by repeatedly voicing his loyalty.

Complete letter of Ghulam Nabi Azad

Hon’ble Congress President, I joined the Indian National Congress in Jammu and Kashmir in the mid-1970s when it was considered disrespectful to associate with the party given its history. The state witnessed the worst period of political collapse since the arrest of Sheikh Mohammed Abdullah on 8 August 1953. Despite all this, from my student days I was inspired by the ideals of Mahatma Gandhi, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Patel, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, Subhash Chandra Bose and other important leaders of our freedom struggle.

Later, on the personal request of Late Shri Sanjay Gandhi, I agreed to assume the responsibility of the President of Jammu and Kashmir Youth Congress in the year 1975-76. After completing his post graduation from Kashmir University, I was already serving as the Block General Secretary of the Indian National Congress from 1973-1975. During the year 1977, I took up my responsibility as the General Secretary of the Indian Youth Congress under the leadership of Late Shri Sanjay Gandhi. During this we went from one jail to another along with thousands of Youth Congress leaders and workers.

The longest period of my stay in Tihar Jail was from 20 December 1978 till the end of January 1979. Then I led a rally from Jama Masjid in Delhi to Parliament House to protest the arrest of Mrs. Indira Gandhi. We opposed the Janata Party system and paved the way for the revival and rejuvenation of the party founded by Late Smt. Indira Gandhi in January 1978.

Within three years, the result of that zealous struggle was that the Indian National Congress returned to power in 1980. After the tragic death of youth icon (Sanjay Gandhi) in 1980, I took over as the National President of IYC.

On 23 June 1981, on the first death anniversary of Late Shri Sanjay Gandhi, I had the privilege of inducting your husband Late Shri Rajiv Gandhi as a member of the National Council of the Indian Youth Congress, as its President. Later Late Shri Rajiv Gandhi took over the leadership of LYC at a special session of IYC held again at Bangalore on 29th and 30th December (1981) of the same year under my chairmanship.

I have the honor of serving as a Union Minister from 1982 to 2014 in the Governments of Late Smt. Indira Gandhi, Late Shri Rajiv Gandhi, Late Shri PV Narasimha Rao and Dr. Manmohan Singh. I have also had the opportunity to serve as the General Secretary of the (AICC) with every President of the Indian National Congress since the mid-1980s.

I was a member of the Congress Parliamentary Board headed by your late husband and then Congress President Shri Rajiv Gandhi until his tragic assassination in May 1991 and later Shri P.V. Narasimha Rao, until later in October 1992, it was decided not to reconstitute the Congress Parliamentary Board.

I have also been a member of the Congress Working Committee continuously for nearly four decades in both elected and nominated capacities. In the last thirty-five years, at one point or another, I have been the General Secretary in-charge of AICC of every state and union territory in the country. Glad to share that the NIC won 90 per cent of the states I was in charge of from time to time. I am describing all these years of selfless service only to underline my long life from association with this great institution. Where I have also recently served as the Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha for 7 years. I spent every working moment of my adult life in the service of the Indian National Congress at the cost of my health and family.

Undoubtedly, as the President of the Indian National Congress, you played an important role in the formation of both the UPA-I and UPA-II governments. Heed his wise advice apart from doing and delegating powers to him.

However, unfortunately after the entry of Mr. Rahul Gandhi into politics and especially after January 2013 when he was appointed by you as the Vice President of the party. The entire advisory system that already existed was demolished by them. All senior and experienced leaders were sidelined and inexperienced sycophants in the new troupe started running the affairs of the party. One of the most obvious examples of this immaturity was the tearing down of a government ordinance by Mr. Rahul Gandhi in full media glare. The ordinance was included in the Congress Core Group and subsequently duly approved by the President of India as well as being unanimously approved by the Union Cabinet headed by the Prime Minister of India.

His ‘childish’ behavior completely challenged the authority of the Prime Minister and the Government of India, ruined it and hurt his dignity. This single act contributed more than anything else to the UPA government’s defeat in 2014, when the party was facing a campaign of slander and libel from a combination of right-wing forces and some unscrupulous corporate interests.

You may recall that after you took over as Congress President by dethroning Shri Sita Ram Kesari, the Congress leadership had a meeting in October 1998 at Pachmarhi to brainstorm. After this, another such session was held in Shimla in 2003 and again in Jaipur in January 2013. I had the privilege of chairing the Working Group on Organizational Affairs on all these three occasions.

Sadly, however, none of the recommendations of these sessions were ever implemented properly. In fact, in January 2013 in Jaipur, I proposed a detailed action plan 10 with the help of other committee members to revitalize the party for the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. This action plan was duly approved by the Congress Working Committee. These recommendations should have been implemented in a time frame before the 2014 Lok Sabha elections. Unfortunately, these recommendations have been lying in the store room of AICC for the last 9 years. These recommendations were not implemented despite my repeated reminders personally to both AAP and the then Vice President Shri Rahul Gandhi since 2013 to implement these recommendations. However, no attempt was made to even consider them seriously.

Since 2014, under your leadership and later under Mr. Rahul Gandhi, the Congress has lost two Lok Sabha elections humiliatingly. The party had to face defeat in 39 out of 49 assembly elections held between 2014 and 2022. The party has won only in four state elections and has been able to come into alliance position six times. unfortunately. Today, Congress is ruling in only two states and is very marginalized and has minor alliance partners in two other states.

The party’s position has worsened after the 2019 elections. Later Mr. Rahul Gandhi stepped down and took over as the interim President before all the senior functionaries of the party who laid down their lives for the party in the Extended Working Committee meeting were insulted. Handled since last three years.

Worse still, the ‘remote control model’ that destroyed the institutional integrity of the UPA government has now been implemented in the Indian National Congress. While AAP remained a mere figurehead in the party, all important decisions were being taken by Mr. Rahul Gandhi and even worse by his security guards and PAs.

Today, on the instructions of the troupe running the AICC, people took out a procession of my fake funeral in Jammu. It was an indiscipline, but was personally welcomed in Delhi by the General Secretaries of the ACC and Mr. Rahul Gandhi. The same group then instigated their goons to attack the house of Mr. Kapil Sibal, a former ministerial colleague. Who was incidentally defending you and protecting you and your family members from alleged attacks of lapses and commissions in the courts of law. Defaults and commissions refer to the things you have failed to do, and or those things you have done.

The 23 senior leaders who wrote to you committed only one crime that in the interest and concern of the party, they told you both the causes of the party’s weaknesses and the ways to overcome it. Unfortunately, we were abused, humiliated, abused and shamed at the specially convened extended CW meeting instead of taking those views constructively and cooperatively by the Board.

Unfortunately, the condition of the Congress party has reached such an extent that there can be no return. Now a “proxy” is being prepared to take over the leadership of the party. This experiment is doomed to fail as the party has been destroyed on such a large scale that it has reached an insurmountable state. Apart from this, the ‘chosen’ person for the party will be nothing more than a puppet dancing on a string. Unfortunately, at the national level we have accepted the existing political space left by the BJP and at the state level we are comfortable with the space left for us by the regional parties. All this happened because in the last 8 years the leadership has tried to impose the command of the party on a non-serious person. The entire organizational election process is a sham and a sham.

Nowhere in the country elections have been held at the level of the organization at any level. The elected lieutenants of the CC have been forced to sign the lists prepared by the troupe running the ACC site at 24 Akbar Road. No voter list was published, no nomination papers were invited, no scrutiny, no polling stations set up or elections were held in any booth, block, district or any place in the state. The ALC leadership is solely responsible for carrying out large-scale fraud with the party. The party should hold onto the ruined history of the past, which was once a national movement, which fought for the independence of India and brought independence. Is the Indian National Congress worth it in the 75th year of India’s independence? This is a question that the NICC leadership must ask itself.

You know that from the time of Late Smt. Indira Gandhi, I had a very close personal relationship with your family, from Late Shri Sanjay Gandhi to your late husband. In that spirit, I personally have the utmost respect for your personal trials and also for the pain that will continue forever. Some of my other colleagues and I will now be determined to uphold the ideals to which we have devoted our entire adult lives outside the formal fold of the Indian National Congress. For all the reasons mentioned above, the Indian National Congress in particular has lost both the will and capacity to fight for what is right for India under the patronage of the congregation that runs the ACC. In fact, the leadership should have done a Congress Jodo exercise in the country before starting the Bharat Jodo Yatra. It is therefore with great regret and a very emotional heart that I have decided to sever my half century old association with the Indian National Congress and hereby resign from all my posts including the primary membership of the Indian National Congress.
