Congress in disarray, 23 top congressional leaders write to Sonia Gandhi, criticize Rahul and Priyanka, demand elections to decide party chairman
Urfan Mulla’s resignation is the second shock to the Congress party in a matter of hours. Earlier today, 23 senior congressional leaders wrote to Sonia Gandhi expressing their dissatisfaction with the way the party operates.
In the letter, leaders called for an immediate CWC meeting to be called to discuss the electoral debacle in Bihar. They also allegedly demanded that the organizational elections for the post of party chairman be held as soon as possible due to the electoral beating.
According to a Rediff report by R Rajagopalan, five members of the CWC confirmed to this correspondent that such a letter was indeed sent this week. The letter would state that at the height of the Bihar campaign and even on Results Day, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra were on vacation in Shimla instead of being with the party and leading the way.
In the letter, some concerns were expressed that congressional leaders feel led to the Bihar debacle. With the pandemic and Ahmed Patel, who is undergoing treatment for the coronavirus, the AICC headquarters at 24 Akbar Road in New Delhi sports a deserted look with no visible political activity.
Additionally, the letter appears to indicate a lack of confidence in the leadership of Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra. Although the CWC has started the polling process, insiders believe it will again be a unanimous / unopposed polling process. Moreover, their absence during the holidays in Shimla did not please the congressional leaders.
