How Will Congress Pivot Without Sonia Gandhi?
A CWC meeting is scheduled to be held in which party’s interim President Sonia Gandhi is likely to offer resignation.
The Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting amid Sonia Gandhi’s decision to resign as party’s working president is reminiscent of a similar crisis the grand old party faced two decades ago. The crucial meeting will be held on Monday (August 24) after a controversy erupted over a letter by more than 20 senior leaders calling for “full-time” active leadership, sweeping reforms and raising questions about the party’s condition and direction, as well as demanding the election of the CWC.
According to sources, Sonia Gandhi is upset with this development. However, Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala refuted media reports about Gandhi quitting as the party’s chief. “Reports of Sonia Gandhi resigning from the post of Congress interim president are false,” Surjewala said. Sources said that Sonia Gandhi’s resignation will not be accepted by the CWC members.
