Former Mumbai Congress President Sanjay Nirupam on Thursday declared that he will not campaign for the party and its candidates in the upcoming Maharashtra assembly elections which are scheduled on October 21. 

This comes as yet another blow to Congress ahead of the assembly elections in Maharashtra. Nirupam took to Twitter to express his disappointment after Congress ignored his recommendation for a candidate in the upcoming assembly polls. 

Agitated Sanjay Nirupam asserted on Twitter

It seems Congress Party doesn’t want my services anymore. I had recommended just one name in Mumbai for Assembly election. Heard that even that has been rejected. As I had told the leadership earlier, in that case I will not participate in  poll campaign. Its my final decision."

On leaving Congress, Nirupam said, "I hope that the day has not yet come to say goodbye to party. But the way leadership is behaving with me, it doesn’t seem far away."
