Chandigarh: Senior Congress leader Sunil Jakhar on Saturday quit the party after he was served a show-cause notice for his comments on former Punjab Chief Minister Charanjit Singh Channi.

"Good luck and goodbye Congress," the former Punjab Congress chief said in a Facebook live broadcast.

Last month, the party's disciplinary committee headed by former Defence Minister A K Antony recommended the suspension of Jakhar from the party for two years and suggested that he be removed from all posts.

On Friday, Jakhar tweeted that he would share his thoughts via Facebook on Saturday.

The development came when a three-day Chintan Shivir of the party is currently on in Rajasthan. (UNI)
