New Delhi: Young Congress leader Jaiveer Shergill on Wednesday tendered his resignation claiming that he felt the vision of the decision-makers in the party no longer was in sync with the aspirations of the youth.

He also said that self-serving interests were gaining precedence while public and national interests were being ignored.

Shergill sent his letter to Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi.

"The primary reason being that the ideology and the vision of the current decision-makers of the Indian National Congress is no longer in sync with the aspirations of the youth and modern India," Shergill said in his letter.

"Furthermore, it pains me to say that decision-making is no longer for the interest of the public and the country. Rather it is influenced by the self-serving interests of individuals indulging in sychophancy and consistently ignoring on ground reality. This is something I cannot morally accept or continue to work with," he added.

Shergill is a lawyer by profession and was one of the prominent ones among young Congress leaders. He hails from Punjab.

Shergill's resignation comes at a time when Congress has seen several of his promising young leaders leave the party. 

Among the prominent Congress leaders who have left the party are Jyotiraditiya Scindia, who is now a Union minister and Jitin Prasada. (ANI)
