Sharing his resignation letter on Twitter, Anil wrote, “I have resigned from my roles in Congress – as the convener of KPCC Digital Media and as the national coordinator of AICC Social Media and Digital Communications Cell.”
“Intolerant calls to retract a tweet,by those fighting for free speech. I refused. Facebook wall of hate/abuses by ones supporting a trek to promote love! Hypocrisy thy name is! Life goes on,” he said.

Anil Antony, on Tuesday, came out against the BBC for interfering in the matters of the country, in the wake of the broadcaster screening a documentary on PM Modi.
“Despite large differences with BJP, I think those placing views of BBC, a state-sponsored channel with a long history of prejudices, and of Jack Straw, the brain behind the Iraq war, over institutions is setting a dangerous precedence, will undermine our sovereignty,” Antony said in a tweet.
“No matter whatever internal differences we may have, we should not let that be exploited by external agencies to create division in the country,” he said.
