Urmila Matondkar has impressed everyone with her contribution to Indian cinema over the years. The actress recently joined the Indian National Congress party on March 27, 2019. Urmila contested for the recently held 2019 Lok Sabha elections from the Mumbai North Constituency but eventually lost to her opponent. Today the actress announced her resignation from the party and thanked the people and media for their support during her political journey.

This move of Matondkar is quite surprising. In a statement, Matondkar announced her resignation from the Indian National Congress. She further added that the thought of resignation came to her after her letter dated May 16th addressed to the then Mumbai Congress party President Mr. Milind Deora went unnoticed. Urmila’s this letter containing privileged and confidential details was then leaked to the media and the actress felt betrayed. She further mentioned how no member from the party was apologetic or concerned towards her despite her repeated protests. Later, Urmila revealed that some of the people specifically named in her letter from INC in MUMBAI North were rewarded with newer positions instead of holding them answerable for their acts and omissions. She further revealed that the functionaries in the Mumbai Congress are either not able to or are not dedicated to bringing about a change in the party for its good. She added that her political and social sensibilities will not allow the party to use her as a medium to fight insignificant in-house politics instead of working on a bigger goal in Mumbai Congress.

Urmila Matondkar concluded by saying that she stands bravely by her thoughts and ideologies and will continue to work for the people to the best of her capacity with lots of honesty and dignity. She also thanked the people who helped and supported her throughout her entire political journey and also wished to sincerely thank the media as well.
