Former Maharashtra minister Kripashanker Singh on Tuesday quit the Congress, saying he did not agree with party’s stand to oppose abrogation of Article 370.

The former Mumbai Congress president said that he will reveal his political stand at an “appropriate time” and added that he is not joining the BJP.

“I quit the Congress because I do not agree with the party’s stand to oppose abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir,” he said.

Mr. Singh served as Mumbai Congress chief and was also a minister in the Congress-NCP coalition government for 15 years.

A Mumbai court last year discharged Singh in a disproportionate asset case for want of sanction to prosecute him. He had come under ED and CBI scanner in the case.
