New Delhi: Congress leader and former union minister Kapil Sibal today resigned from the party. He filed his nomination from the Rajya Sabha as a Samajwadi Party-backed independent candidate from Uttar Pradesh.

Here are the top quotes from Kapil Sibal's interview to NDTV:

  1. On his resignation from Congress: It wasn't sudden. I didn't want it to be a tamasha. Political parties are like voluntary organisation, people come and go.

  2. It's always difficult to move on. At the same time, every person has to think for himself if the time has come to do something different. There are no independent voices in the party.

  3. On Joining another party: BJP, over my dead body. I am not going to join any party.

  4. On Samajwadi Party: I am not in Samajwadi Party. I could take the support of any party which supported me. I am for the idea of inclusive India, that's the ideology of India.

  5. On Critics: I never worried about anything in life. What I say, I believe, I believe what I say. I don't have to worry. They're welcome to say whatever they have to say.
