Kirit Pradyot Deb Barman had been feuding with the party ever since he filed a petition in the Supreme Court requesting implementation of an Assam-like citizens' list in the state. Deb Barman had earlier threatened to resign after he was allegedlly pressurised to take the petition. He alleged that senior Congress leader Luizinho Faleiro is pressuring him to withdraw the petition.
