In his resignation letter addressed to Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, Jhunjhunwala said he wishes to convey his “decision to resign from the membership of the Congress party”. “I was given a wonderful opportunity by the party to represent it for the Lok Sabha elections from Ajmer in 2019,” he said.
In the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, he had lost to BJP’s Bhagirath Choudhary in Ajmer.
In a Twitter post, he said: “The reasons for my resignation are purely personal.” His resignation letter said: “I have tried my best to serve the party through various activities but in vain. While I continue with my commitment to serve the people of Rajasthan with full zeal in times to come, I’m unable to add any value towards this mission through the party.”
