After just 165 days of joining politics with much fanfare and excitement and promising to serve the people, actor Urmila Matondkar today resigned from the Congress. Underscoring the deep factionalism within the party, Ms Matondkar said did not wish to be used for "petty in-house politics". The events from here on will define whether she has just quit the Congress because of what she called in-house politics, or has she decided to stay away from politics itself? Has Congress failed Urmila Matondkar or has she failed in her political commitment? She thus joins the list of celebs who are often criticised for treating politics as a part time activity.
