Accusing the party of digressing from its core ideology, Samajwadi Party leader Pankhuri Pathak has quit the party.

Pathak's resignation came a day after she was dropped from the list of media panelists authorised to officially represent the party in print and electronic media.

“I want to inform that my journey of 8 years with the Samajwadi Party ends today. I joined the party impressed by its leadership and ideology. Both have changed. And I feel suffocated in the current environment," Pathak tweeted.
