Let us tell you that on October 16, the decision of the organizational elections was taken in the meeting of the Congress Working Committee in New Delhi. In the meeting, Congress President Sonia Gandhi had said that the recent horrific incident of Lakhimpur Kheri has exposed the BJP mindset that how it sees the farmers’ movement, the efforts made by the farmers for their lives and livelihoods. How do you deal with this ardent struggle for defense?
The Congress President further said that the public sector not only has strategic and economic goals but also has social goals. But all this is in danger due to the single-point agenda of Sell, Sell, Sell by the Modi Government.
In that meeting of the Congress Working Committee, Sonia Gandhi had given a clear message to the G-23 leaders that she is the full time president of the party. Let us tell you that G-23 refers to those 23 Congress leaders who wrote a letter to Sonia Gandhi last year, telling them the need for major changes and full-time President.
Sonia Gandhi had also advised the party leaders without naming that they are supporters of frankness but do not talk to them through the media.
In the same meeting, Sonia Gandhi had said that the schedule of organization elections is ready and KC Venugopal ji will give information about its entire process. Gandhi said the entire organization wanted the Congress to rise again but for this it was necessary to keep unity and party interests at the top. Even more needed is self control and discipline.
