West Bengal Congress general secretary Rohan S Mitra, the son of former state Congress president Somen Mitra, resigned from his post on Wednesday, saying he was not feeling motivated to work under the leadership of state party president Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury.

In a letter to Chowdhury, Mitra said there were no visible signs of the party’s revival in West Bengal. He wrote, “The sycophants surrounding you have not only brought your downfall but also led to the ultimate downfall of the party in the state with no visible signs of revival in the near future. Your attitude towards me since the beginning has been pathetic, your fragile ego could not handle your removal from the post of the Pradesh Congress president’s chair back then, you decided to take that out on me.”

Chowdhury, who had been the state Congress president earlier, took reins of the state unit again after Somen Mitra’s death last July.
