Congress’s national media coordinator Radhika Khera resigned from the primary membership of the party, alleging mistreatment by party leaders after her visit to the Ram Temple in Ayodhya.

In her letter to Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, Khera said she was denied justice in the incident that happened in the Chhattisgarh Pradesh Congress Committee office. An argument had reportedly taken place between Khera and Chhattisgarh Congress' communication wing chairperson Sushil Anand Shukla in the party office in Raipur on April 30.

"For every Hindu, the birthplace of Lord Shri Ram holds great significance. While every Hindu considers his life successful just by seeing Ram Lalla, some people have been opposing it. The party to which I have given more than 22 years of my life, while working with full honesty right from NSUI to AICC's media department," Khera said in her letter which she has also posted on X.

"Today I have to face such intense criticism because I could not stop myself from visiting Ram Lalla in Ayodhya. The criticism to this noble work reached such a level that justice was denied to me in the incident that happened with me in the Chhattisgarh Pradesh Congress office,” she added. 

“I have always fought for the justice of others from every platform, but when it came to my justice, I found myself defeated in the party. Being a devotee of Lord Shri Ram and a woman, I am deeply hurt," she further said.

Khera’s resignation has come as another setback to the grand old party amid the Lok Sabha elections.
