Kangra Congress chief Suman Verma resigns

Kangra, Dec 26 (UNI) Kangra District Congress Committee chief Suman Verma today tendered her resignation, along with four other office bearers on moral grounds, taking the responsibility of a crushing defeat of Congress party in the recent Assembly polls.
Stating this while addressing a press conference here, Ms Verma said that Kangra is the road to form the government in the state and out of 15 constituencies, Congress managed to win only three seats, which was both shocking and disappointing. She said it was her moral duty to accept the defeat and resign as Kangra District Congress Committee chief.
She was elected as DCC chief for Kangra district in 2010, but was now heading Kangra, Dharamshala, Nagrota Bagwan and Shahpur blocks.
Out of the four blocks she was heading, Transport, Technical Education and Food and Civil Supplies Minister G S Bali and Urban Development Minister Sudhir Sharma and HPSFC Vice Chairman Kewal Singh Pathania lost to BJP candidates. However, Congress candidate Pawan Kajal succeeded from Kangra.
Ms Verma said she had submitted her resignation to State Party Chief Sukvinder Singh Sukhu.
Those who joined her on Tuesday in tendering their resignations were Manoj Mehta and Navneet Sharma, District Secretaries, the District Media In-Charge and party office Secretary Sanjeev Gupta.
She said that Chief Minister Virbhdra Singh and other Congress Ministers did well during the last five years, but there must have remained some lapses, which resulted in the defeat. Ms Verma said that all party workers would work with more vigour for bringing back the Congress to power in the next polls.
She congratulated designate Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur for assuming the office of Chief Minister on Wednesday and hoped that all developmental workers would go on with same pace to see this hill state further developed.
The Congress leader also congratulated Pawan Kajal, newly-elected Congress MLA from Kangra, and suggested him to keep the pace of his developmental works in progress.
