In India, no political party has any internal democracy, including BJP, AAP and TMC. The question is of accountability, we should appreciate Rahul Gandhi, who takes moral responsibility after the congress debacle, and he is an honest politician who cares about public sentiments in the current scenario. Congress is in revamp mode. They are trying to bring a party chief, who can be any other leader than the Gandhi family member.
In the meantime, Sonia Gandhi is going abroad for her medical treatment, as she is unwell for a long time. The news about Sonia Gandhi offering Congress Chief Post to Ashok Gehlot and his denial was rather interesting news. So why then did the other leaders who are now have broken away and formed the G23 group didn’t allow him to take up such a post? When Ashok Gehlot was given the Chance of a Non-Gandhi person to take over, he could have very well agreed would have avoided leaders such as Kapil Sibal, Anand Sharma, Ghulam Nabi Azad and others to have quit and formed the G23 party. However, it is never too late as the deadline is on the 20th August when the election is to be held, Ashok Gehlot should boldly agree to be willing for the post and bring back all those who had left the party and strengthen it before the 2024 elections.
Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will travel with Sonia Gandhi. Rahul Gandhi will address the Congress’ ‘Mehangai Par Halla Bol’ rally in New Delhi on September 4, 2022. Other than Gehlot, Congress has a list of good leaders like Pawan Khera, Siddaramaiah, Randeep Surjewala, Shashi Tharoor, P Chidambaram to take up bigger responsibility. If Congress has to make a comeback, then they should immediately look for some good 50 to 60 AGE, Dynamic, excellent orator as their President and probable candidate for PM otherwise. Gehlot is the front-runner for the post if all three Gandhis turn it down. But he reasserted today that there was no question of anyone other than Rahul Gandhi leading the party.
Rahul Gandhi has refused to return as Congress president after he quit over the party’s abject defeat in the 2019 national election. He has reportedly asserted that it is time for a non-Gandhi to step up. Sonia Gandhi has said she can’t continue in the role because of her poor health. Priyanka Gandhi has preferred to support the party but with no position. If Rahul Gandhi does not become the party president, it will be a disappointment for the congress representatives in the country. Many people will sit at home and we will suffer. Gehlot stated that Rahul Gandhi should accept this post by himself, understanding the sentiments of the common Congress people in the country. The Congress is already running late on the start of its internal election. The schedule may be announced later this week after a meeting of the Congress Working Committee (CWC), which will be attended virtually by Sonia Gandhi. A member of the Gandhi family has led the Congress for much of its 136-year-old history.
Perhaps this I s one reason many Congress leaders left the party. Recently Jaiveer Shergill resigned with sharp jabs at the Gandhis in a letter that said the “vision of the party’s decision-makers is no longer in sync” with the aspirations of the youth. All three Gandhis had denied him a meeting for over a year. The primary reason for his move, he said in a resignation letter to Sonia Gandhi, was that the ideology and the vision of the current decision-makers of the Congress is no longer in sync with the aspirations of the youth and modern India. The 39-year-old lawyer was among the youngest and most prominent spokespersons of the Congress. He had not been seen at the party’s media briefings for a while.
Gandhi family’s visit abroad comes when the party is prepping for its Kanyakumari to Kashmir ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ starting September 7. It also comes ahead of the election of party president, the schedule for which is expected to be out this week. The news report about Sonia Gandhi heading abroad for Check-up, Rahul and Priyanka to accompany, was rather sad and disturbing news. In spite of her poor health yet she is so loyal and sincere to the Indian nation being a foreigner herself. I highly appreciated this. But she is going when there is a heavy schedule of the Congress party and we wish her all good health and that she returns perfectly fit to be ready for the election of the party president and that they will put a suitable person in her place.
