Sam Pitroda steps down as Indian Overseas Congress chief after controversial racist remarks

Congress leader Sam Pitroda has resigned from his position as Chairman of the Indian Overseas Congress, with his resignation being accepted by the party.

Congress leader Jairam Ramesh announced Pitroda's decision to step down "of his own accord." Pitroda faced criticism for his controversial remark suggesting that Indians in the East resemble the Chinese, while those in the South look like Africans.

The Congress swiftly distanced itself from Pitroda's remarks, labelling them "unacceptable." #SamPitrodaResigns #SamPitroda #SamPitrodaControversy #SamPitrodaCongress #CongressvsBJP #SamPitrodaRacistComment #SamPitrodaControversialRemark #SamPitrodaOversees #CongressUnitedStates #OneindiaNews ~HT.99~PR.152~ED.194~
