Congress Headless, no one knows who is taking a decision: says Sibal

 Congress Headless, no one knows who is taking a decision: says Sibal

Amid growing defections from the party and the chaos in the Punjab unit, the Congress Veteran and the G-23 leader Ghulam Nabi Azad asked the leadership to convene a meeting of the Congress Working Committee.

The demand for the Congress Working Committee meeting was accompanied by renewed sniping from G-23 targeting the Gandhis, without naming them.

The former Union Minister Kapil Sibal told in a press conference that those leaders who were close to ‘them’ (the leadership) have left the party while ‘we’ (the G-23), who are not considered close to ‘them’, are standing by ‘them’. Suggesting they were loyal party men, but not blind supporters.

Sibal said that “We are G-23, not Ji Huzoor 23”.

In a letter addressed to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Azad is learned to have argued that desertions by loyalists for other parties have led to turmoil. He reportedly said that a CVC discussion would be sent out a clear message to workers and reassure them.

However, the demand for a CWC meeting is significant given that the top congress body has membership from across sections, and discussion there has a resonance with the party at large. It will also provide a platform for the dissidents to raise their concerns regarding the affairs of the party.

Sibal said to the reporters that the party was headless without a president and nobody knew who was taking  decision. Naming leaders who have recently left the party, Sibal also said that there may be a problem within which could be behind the desertions, and they should be discussed. He reiterated the demand for the election to the party president’s post and other AICC bodies.
