Mumbai: Actress-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar resigned from the Congress on September 10. The 44-year-old actress contested and lost from Mumbai North constituency during Lok Sabha 2019 election.

Urmila Matondkar said that the letter was deliberately leaked and that it was an "act of betrayal. She further added that the party has not been able to drive any change after witnessing the fact that some of the key names mentioned in the letter faced no action, but were awarded with plum positions.
