Rangeela girl resigns from Congress

Actor-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar resigned from the Congress Tuesday, citing “vested interests in the party and petty in-house politics.”

In July, a letter written by Matondkar criticising trusted aides of her senior colleague Sanjay Nirupam triggered a war of words in the state unit of the party, few days after the resignation of then party’s Mumbai chief Milind Deora.

In the letter, dated May 16, addressed to Deora, Matondkar had criticised the conduct of Sandesh Kondvilkar and Bhushan Patil, close associates of Nirupam. She highlighted the failure of the party leadership on coordination at the local level, mobilising workers at grassroots and failure to provide proper resources to her by the two campaign coordinators.
