new Delhi: Debates between Congress loyalists and dissidents continue as the G-23 group of rebel leaders intensified the attack on the Gandhi family and the loyalists have defended it fiercely. Congress “Those who do not want the Gandhi family to lead the party, do not know that without them the party will be weak and a weak Congress will be fatal to democracy,” leader Anil Shastri said in a tweet in Hindi on Tuesday.

He said, “There is a need to improve the order, but it should be done with the Gandhi family and the Congress cannot compete on the communal agenda of the BJP. Those who are attacking the party should tell how they take the party forward,” he said. want to take.” “BJP invokes sentiments, but Congress is committed to a certain ideology and we have to go ahead with it,” Shastri said.

Former MP Sandeep Dikshit said, “The Congress president should have accessibility, acceptability and accountability.” He said that access to the people and party leaders, acceptance within the public and accountability in view of the loss should be for the Speaker and it should also be the role model for the state chief ministers and state heads. He said that family is not acceptable to the people and this is also evident from the continuous failures in election after election and they are not available to anyone including party leaders.

Dikshit said, “In 90 per cent of the cases, it is the Congress that stands against the Congress, which is backed by top AICC leaders. These leaders are full of arrogance and have held high positions for a long time.” He alleged that the sycophants have put the party in trouble. Stating that members like him are not going to leave the party and will stay here and fight, he said, “We have no plans to quit, but do plan to fight for revival.”

The rebel group is planning to meet on Wednesday and work out future strategies. Days after the Congress Working Committee meeting, senior party leader Kapil Sibal on Tuesday demanded that the Gandhi family should be given a chance to lead the party away from the leadership role. Noting that the Congress has consistently lost elections except on a few occasions since its 2014 electoral defeat, he said, “The CWC has expressed confidence in the party leadership, but the CWC has reposed faith in the party leadership, but from outside the CWC.” People feel that otherwise many people have left the party and new leaders should be given a chance to lead the party.”

Sibal is one of the signatories to a letter to Sonia Gandhi seeking reforms within the party, but sources say that Ghulam Nabi Azad and Anand Sharma did not raise the issue of leadership change in the CWC meeting on Sunday.

Sunday at CWC Sonia Gandhi had offered to step down from the leadership along with Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, but it was turned down by the CWC. The Congress Working Committee supported him on Sunday, expressing full faith in him.
