The Congress Working Committee met for 7 hours on Monday to decide the new president, but the search was not completed. At the beginning of the meeting, Sonia Gandhi had expressed her desire to quit as the interim president, yet she still has to take up this responsibility. It has definitely been decided that the new chairman will be selected within 6 months. It was also decided in the meeting that the next session of the Congress Committee will be convened at the earliest, so that the process of selection of the new president can be started.
Sonia said – there are differences, but ultimately we are one
Sonia said at the end of the meeting that we are a big family. We too have differences on many occasions, but in the end we are all together. The need of the hour is to fight against such forces for the people, who are weakening this country. Let’s move forward. I do not have any ill feelings for the people who wrote the letter, because that too is my family.
Punia said that Ghulam Nabi Azad, Mukul Wasnik and Anand Sharma have said in writing that there is no dispute about party leadership. The party has the freedom to put forth its views, but it should be discussed in the party forum and not in the public domain. Many members have expressed concern over this.
Ruckus on Rahul’s statement in the meeting, Congress controls damage in four and a half hours
When the meeting of the party’s largest organization Congress Working Committee, or CWC, started on Monday, Sonia Gandhi offered to step down as the interim president. Only after this, former President Rahul Gandhi questioned the timing of the letter of leaders sent to Sonia. Rahul alleged that the party leaders did all this with the connivance of the BJP. It would hardly have been 20-25 minutes for Rahul’s statement that his protest started.
Among the protesters were Ghulam Nabi Azad and Kapil Sibal. The Congress later said that Rahul had not spoken a word similar to or similar to ‘collusion with the BJP’. Subsequently, Sibal retracted his tweet and Ghulam Nabi Azad his statement.
In fact, about 15 days ago, 23 party leaders wrote a letter to Sonia Gandhi and said that the BJP is continuously moving forward. In the last elections, the youths strongly voted for Narendra Modi. Leadership in Congress should be full time and its effect should also be seen.
