A V Gopinath quits Congress amid rift in party over selection of DCC chiefs.

Amid the rift in the Congress over the selection of 14 presidents of the District Congress Committee (DCC), senior leader and ex-MLA A V Gopinath on Monday announced his resignation from the primary membership of the party.

Gopinath, a former president of the Palakkad DCC and a member of the KPCC, said he was ending his 50-year-long association with the Congress party. Announcing the resignation from the party at a press conference here, the senior leader said he would not like to continue as a stumbling block in the progress of the party for which he worked tirelessly for the last five decades.
