Update: Gaurav Vallabh has surprised everyone after joining hands with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The move from the Congress party spokesperson has come after he resigned from his posts on Thursday.

Professor Gaurav Vallabh resigned from all the posts of Congress on Thursday saying that he can “neither raise anti-Sanatan slogans nor abuse weather creators” every day.

Taking it to his official X handle, he quoted, “I am not able to feel comfortable with the directionless way in which the Congress Party is moving forward today. I can neither raise anti-Sanatan slogans nor abuse the wealth creators of the country in the morning and evening. That is why I am resigning from all posts and primary membership of Congress Party.”

It is worth noting that the party’s spokesperson has not been attending television programs on behalf of the party for a long and has not held any press conferences for a long time.

According to Vallabh, the Congress is utterly disconnected from reality and is unable to comprehend the goals of a post-colonial India. This has prevented the party from gaining traction and acting as a formidable opposition.

The former finance professor and leader of the Congress also expressed his displeasure with the grand old party's decision to boycott the Ayodhya Ram Mandir's Pran Pratishtha event.

Notably, he is not the first one, recently several prominent leaders have resigned from Congress. Vijender Singh and Sanjay Nirupam are among the ones.

This is not the first time that Vallabh has spoken his heart. Due to his strong oratory and knowledge of reasoning, he was made the national spokesperson of the party. Another incident that put him in the limelight when Sambit Patra was waxing philosophic about Prime Minister Narendra Modi's plan to create a "five trillion economy" on one of the TV shows, Vallav mutely inquired as to how many zeroes there were in a trillion. The BJP spokesperson attempted to sidestep the topic by joking that it belonged to Rahul Gandhi, but Vallabh continued and demonstrated his argument.
