“I have resigned from my roles in @incindia @INCKerala. Intolerant calls to retract a tweet, by those fighting for freedom of speech. I refused. @facebook wall of hate/abuse by those who support a trek to promote love! Hypocrisy, your name is! Life goes on. Redacted letter of resignation below,” Antony tweeted.

He also said that the leadership only likes to work with a bunch of ‘sycophants’ and ‘chamchas’.

“I am sure I have my own unique strengths, which would have allowed me to make a very effective contribution to the party in a variety of ways.
