Congress is facing a major setback, after around 1,400 NSUI workers resigned from the party’s student wing. Those leaving NSUI includes its general secretary and vice president, district media coordinator and several others. These NSUI workers have alleged that the party has cheated them in the name of democracy and membership. They said that they were made to pay Rs 100 each for the internal polls and after that, no election was conducted. The workers feel that instead of an election, there was merely a selection process in the party.
