Bollywood celebrity-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar on Tuesday resigned from Indian National Congress (INC) citing disappointment over "in-house politics". However, Matondkar lost the election from Mumbai North Lok Sabha constituency against Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Gopal Shetty. 

Matondkar, who became a star candidate and campaigner of the Congress during the LS polls alleged that she was used as a means to fight in-house politics.

"My political and social sensibilities refuse to allow vested interests in the party to use me as a mean to fight petty in-house politics instead of working on a bigger goal in Mumbai Congress," said Urmila Matondkar in a statement while quitting the party.

While talking to Mumbai Live, Matondkar further informed that she has not decided her future actions.
