- Captain Amarinder Singh gave advice to leaders who questioned leadership in Congress
- Amarinder Singh said- Democracy still in Congress Party, Sonia will continue as President for as long as she wants
- CWC to elect new president headed by Sonia Gandhi, what is needed now: Amarinder
Senior Congress leader and Punjab CM Amarinder Singh has reacted to the voices against Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi since the Bihar election in the Congress party. Taking a dig at the leaders who raised the internal issues of the party, the Captain said that there is still democracy in the Congress party. The Captain said that Sonia Gandhi will be the President of the Congress for as long as she wants. The Captain said that those who have to raise the subjects of the party on the public platform and have any differences, they can leave the Congress if they want.
Who says that there is no democracy in the Congress party. If you are a Congress worker then any issue should not be raised on the public platform but within the party. If you want to leave the Congress party then go out and do such things. But if you are in the Congress party then you should raise such issues internally.
Azad broke silence on the Congress defeat in Bihar, said – do not blame the party leadership, we lost contact on the ground
‘CWC will decide who will be the chairman’
The Captain further said that Sonia Gandhi will be the President of the party for as long as she wants and when she does not, she will leave the post. After this, he and the Working Committee of the Congress will decide who will be the president. However, where is it needed now?
Kapil Sibal raised questions on leadership
Let me tell you that many leaders within the Congress party like Kapil Sibal, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Karti Chidambaram, Shashi Tharoor had recently given statements about changing the leadership of the party. Recently, Congress leader and former Union Minister Kapil Sibal has said in an interview to an English newspaper that it seems that the party leadership may have accepted defeat in every election as their destiny. He said that not only Bihar, but also from the results of the by-elections, it seems that the people of the country are not considering the Congress Party as an effective alternative.
Congress pulls: Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary, now attacked by Kapil Sibal, said – he is not our leader
Ghulam Nabi Azad said – Connection broken at ground level
Ghulam Nabi Azad said that we are all concerned about the loss, especially in Bihar and the by-election results. I do not blame the leadership for the loss. Because the top leaders of the party have lost contact at the ground level. Ghulam Nabi Azad said that elections are not won by sitting in a 5-star hotel. The problem with politicians today is that if they get a party ticket, they book a 5-star hotel first. If there is a bumpy road somewhere, they will not go there. Unless we change this culture, we cannot win elections.
Karti Chidambaram also advocated change
Karti Chidambaram, son of former Union minister P Chidambaram and MP from Tamil Nadu, has also advised the Congress to introspect after the defeat in Bihar. A few days ago he tweeted that it is time for the Congress to introspect, ponder and deliberate.
Only people who are troublemakers become opponents
The Congress leaders who have voiced their opposition include many members of the party’s G-23 group. These leaders have also played the role of a troubleshooter for the Congress in many odd situations. In G-23, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Anand Sharma, Kapil Sibal, Shashi Tharoor, Vivek Tankha, Mukul Wasnik, Jitin Prasad, Bhupendra Singh Hooda, Manish Tiwari, Veerappa, Moily, Prithviraj Chavan, PJ Kurian, Ajay Singh, Renuka Chowdhury, Milind There are many big names including Deora, Raj Babbar.
