Puzzled? You shouldn’t be. She just resigned her Lok Sabha seat, stating…
“In the last few days some Opposition parties are trying to create an impression that the Congress and the United Progressive Alliance are using Parliament and the government only to protect me. This has hurt me very much.”
“I have stated earlier also that I am in politics and public life not for my selfish ends,” she said. “I have taken a pledge to serve the people of the country and to protect secular ideals. So, in keeping with my public life and political principles and according to my own belief, I resign as member of Lok Sabha and Chairperson of National Advisory Council. I have full faith that brothers and sisters of Rae Bareli and the whole nation will understand this feeling of mine.”
