Mumbai, Jul 9: The infighting in Mumbai Congress took a new turn with a letter of actress and party member Urmila Matondkar, making scathing comments against aides of her senior colleague Sanjay Nirupam, surfacing on Monday.
Matondkar, who lost the Lok Sabha elections from Mumbai North, wrote to the party leadership, criticising the conduct of Sandesh Kondvilkar and Bhushan Patil, close associates of Nirupam, a former Mumbai Congress president. The letter of May 16 was a week before results were announced, and addressed to Milind Deora, Mumbai Regional Congress Committee chief, who announced his resignation from the post on Sunday.
She had highlighted the party leadership’s failure at local level on coordination, mobilising workers at grassroots, and failure to provide proper resources to her by the two campaign coordinators. She accused the duo of showing “total lack of coordination, honesty and efficiency, ensuring a disastrous outcome”. Nirupam hit out at Deora after the letter became public.
