In her letter to Kharge, Ampareen Lyngdoh said that for the most part of her life, “I have been a staunch supporter and foot soldier of the Indian National Congress.

It also appointed me as Secretary of the All India Congress Committee, and I am grateful for the party’s support thus far.”

“However, recent developments within the party have led me to believe that it has lost its sense of direction. There has been a pressing need for the party and its leadership to reflect on this. Sincere and honest attempts to lead such self-introspection, I believe, have failed.
