Share post:


MUMBAI, Feb 8: In a jolt to Maharashtra Congress on Thursday, a senior leader – Bandra strongman and ex-minister Baba Ziauddin Siddique, has resigned from the party’s primary membership with immediate effect barely a month after another veteran Milind M. Deora had quit .
Siddique, 65, who was a party loyalist through thick and thin for some 48 years, announced his resignation on an ‘X’ post, which was in speculation for the past few days in political circles.
“I joined the Indian National Congress Party as a young teenager and it has been a significant journey lasting 48 years… there’s a lot I would have liked to express but as they say, some things are better left unsaid,” said Siddique in his sign off tweet.
Though he has not indicated his future plans, he is likely to throw in his lot with the Nationalist Congress Party led by Deputy CM Ajit Pawar, with whom he enjoys cosy personal and political equations. (IANS)
