“It seems the 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.

In another tweet, Nirupam said, “I hope that the day has not yet come to say goodbye to the party. But the way leadership is behaving with me, it doesn’t seem far away.”
