new Delhi. The talk of Priyanka Gandhi becoming Congress President has started gaining momentum. Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh said in Chandigarh on Monday that if Priyanka Gandhi does yes to become Congress President, she will get our full support. Rahul Gandhi should consider it.
According to Amarinder- Priyanka Gandhi is better for this post. They are the party’s choice. Everything depends on the Congress Working Committee. The committee will take a decision on this. He said – India is a country of youth. Only a young leader should take command of the party.
Earlier on Sunday, Shashi Tharoor said that whether party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will also participate in the election for the post of party president? The Gandhi family will decide this. Rahul Gandhi resigned from the post of Speaker on 25 May after the defeat in the Lok Sabha elections.
Loss of leadership to the party – Tharoor
Tharoor had said that after the resignation of Rahul Gandhi, the party is suffering due to lack of leadership. The way forward will be open only after the election of the Speaker. At this juncture, only a young leader would be suitable for the leadership of the Congress. However the CWC is very serious about the current situation. Trying to find a solution without any delay.
Tharoor expressed disappointment over the current situation, the former Union Minister said about the current situation of the party – we cannot give a clear answer to the situation we are facing at present. One way for the CWC could be to first name an interim executive chairman for the party. Then later it should be dissolved and fresh elections be held for the post of Chief Speaker.
