Sonia Gandhi asks PCC chiefs of all five states to surrender
This step comes after a number of leaders began requiring duty directly from the Gandhi relative
New Delhi: Under fire from within, Congress head of state Sonia Gandhi on Tuesday looked for the resignations of all five state unit principals– in Punjab, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa as well as Manipur– to facilitate reorganisation of the particular Pradesh Congress Committees. These states mosted likely to the polls in the past couple of weeks. This includes PCC principals Navjot Singh Sidhu from Punjab as well as Ganesh Godiyal from Uttarakhand, to name a few.
This move comes after several leaders started demanding duty straight from the Gandhi family members. After senior leader Kapil Sibal had claimed that the Gandhis should pave the means for somebody else to lead the party, on Tuesday elderly leader Sandeep Dikshit restated this need. He said that changes were right away needed which the Congress’ interim president, Mrs Sonia Gandhi, rather than offering to resign, should have straightaway tendered her resignation if she was so likely. He was also extra severe on the state in-charges and the coterie bordering the high command. He added that strict activity should be taken versus the leaders under whom several elections have actually been lost.
The change-seekers, recognized as the G-23, are, meanwhile, increasing their base. A dinner meeting has actually been called by elderly leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Wednesday. This meeting will certainly include many other leaders who were originally not a part of the change-seekers’ grouping earlier. The interior fights within the Congress have actually put the high command in a limited place. It is the initial time that the Congress management is under direct attack due to the fact that of the succeeding election losses. The leadership of the Congress has actually been relocating around within the Gandhi family only since 1998 till date.
The Congress establishment has struck back. Lok Sabha MP Manickam Tagore implicated Kapil Sibal of talking the language of the RSS and the BJP. He claimed: “Why the RSS and also BJP desires the Nehru-Gandhis out of the leadership? Because without the Gandhis’ management, the Congress will certainly be become the Janata Party. It is very easy to eliminate the Congress after that as it is very easy to destroy the suggestion of India. Kapil Sibal knows it well, however why is he speaking the language of the RSS/BJP?”
Striking Mr Sibal, Rajasthan chief preacher Ashok Gehlot said: “Kapil Sibal isn’t an individual from Congress culture. He’s a renowned supporter who went into the Congress. Sonia Ji and Rahul Ji have actually offered him a great deal of possibilities. It’s not gotten out of a person who does not know the ABC of the Congress to offer such declarations.”
