Bengaluru: The disarray in Congress party is known to all. The party lacks a full-time president who is ready to lead it through troubled times. 

While Sonia Gandhi has taken the reins as a makeshift arrangement, the chorus for election to choose the party president is only growing. The party sure can’t suppress it. 

Ousted spokesperson Sanjay Jha has put out a tweet in which he claims there is a dissent in party. 

He says, “It is estimated that around 100 Congress leaders (including MP's) , distressed at the state of affairs within the party, have written a letter to Mrs Sonia Gandhi, Congress President, asking for change in political leadership and transparent elections in CWC.” 


Sanjay Jha’s tweet comes close on the heels of another senior party leader Manish Tewari who had publicly chided the younger members of the party for deviating from the ideology. But at the same time, he had said uncertainty must end and there should be more transparency at the top. 

Interestingly, in the wake of the bhumi pujan performed by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, he had also asked the party to revisit its stance on secularism. 


In a virtual meeting of the Congress party, the bad blood was out in the open as Rahul Gandhi’s loyalists KC Venugopal and Rajiv Satav did not mince words in upbraiding former PM Manmohan Singh for not giving good governance in UPA-II.

The Congress has done no good to itself as its leader Rahul Gandhi has kept on needling Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the China issue. Insiders from the party say many Congressmen are themselves are not happy with Rahul Gandhi’s stance on the issue. The seniors are miffed with the Gandhi scion as it is said he doesn’t pay heed to their opinions nor does he respect their views.
