GUWAHATI: Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APPC), while reacting to Congress leader Sushmita Dev's resignation from party, said that it was "shocking".
In the press statement, the APCC said, "While holding such a responsible post as president of All India Mahila Congress, Sushmita Dev's resignation from party is indeed very shocking. Dev as AIMC president was leading lakhs of Congress women all over India. The Congress party never expected this from Dev as Congress had always respected her talent and had given her lot of opportunities to grow as a leader. The Congress encouraged youth in politics and she was given opportunity to become an MLA and a MP to serve the people at a very young age. Moreover, she is the daughter of a Congress stalwart, Santosh Mohan Dev whose rise in politics of Barak Valley and Assam was nurtured by our leaders like Indiraji and Rajivji. Being out of power should not be a reason to leave the party. Nevertheless, we wish her success in her new party and hope she will continue to serve the public with all sincerity and integrity that a leader is expected to serve with."
