His resignation comes only a day after his tweet regarding the controversial BBC documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi
Anil K. Antony, son of veteran Congress leader A.K. Antony on January 25 announced his resignation from all his roles in the Congress party, citing a lack of common ground with the party. Mr. Anil had been the convener of the Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee Digital Media, as well as the National co-coordinator of AICC Social Media and Digital Communications Cell.
His resignation comes only a day after his tweet regarding the controversial BBC documentary on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He had said that those placing views of BBC over institutions are setting a dangerous precedent that “will undermine our sovereignty.”
Mr. Antony’s position had gone down poorly with the Congress leadership. It drew criticism from Youth Congress president Shafi Parambil. Leader of Opposition V.D. Satheesan sent an emphatic political message to doubters in his party by attending a public screening in Kochi.
