Congress’s demand is likely to be taken to the plot of 23 leaders of the party president Sonia Gandhi on Monday after the letter to the temporary president. A few weeks ago, a letter was written to the Congress president demanding a change of leadership led by former ministers and MPs. Following the receipt of the letter, the Congress Working Committee, which will meet on Monday, will hold discussions on the issue. According to India Today, Sonia Gandhi has stated in a letter to leaders that she has completed one year as the party’s interim president and is ready to step down.
According to the report, the party will find a new candidate for the post of president. Another leader, Sanjay Nirupam, has asked why Sonia Gandhi should resign in the wake of Rahul Gandhi’s resignation, taking responsibility for the defeat in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Has any working committee member resigned? He asked.
Ahead of the Congress Working Committee meeting on Monday, a section of sitting MPs and former ministers have demanded collective leadership. At the same time, another faction is of the opinion that Rahul Gandhi should be re-elected as President.
Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said the letter sent by the leaders was unbelievable. He also demanded that Rahul Gandhi come forward to take over the leadership of the party if Sonia decides not to continue.
