Bihar Congress leader Ashok Choudhary on Wednesday expressed his displeasure with party high command’s decision of his removal as state chief, saying he has been insulted and does not deserve such treatment.
"As a committed Congressman, I expected an honorable exit from the party post," Ashok Choudhary said.
Choudhary said he welcomes the party’s decision but has no intention to leave the party.
“I have no intention to leave the party but won’t such kind of treatment,” he said.
On Tuesday, Choudhary was removed from the post with immediate effect. The party, however, did not announce his replacement though Kaukab Quadri has been named as interim chief.
