There is no leadership crisis in Congress: Anand Sharma | India News


NEW DELHI: Congress said on Friday that there was no leadership crisis in the party, since Sonia Gandhi was named head of the CWC, the highest decision-making body of the great party.

The main spokesman for the party, Anand Sharma, responded negatively when asked if there was a leadership crisis in Congress following many leaders demanding a new election for the top position.

Sonia Gandhi was appointed interim president of Congress in August last year after Rahul Gandhi resigned from taking on moral responsibility for the party’s Lok Sabha poll debacle.

“I don’t see that. We have a president (in place). That is the decision of the Congress Working Committee (CWC),” Sharma told reporters when asked if there was a leadership crisis in the party.

On many Congress leaders who expressed their concerns in public on the issue of leadership, he said: “It is clear that those in Congress express their opinions.”

“But the opinion of Congress is decided by the CWC, which makes key decisions. When there is an event, we have a constitution and the CWC,” added the member of Rajya Sabha.

Voices from various sectors within the Congress are emerging on the issue of leadership with many leaders, including Shashi Tharoor and Sandeep Dikshit, who demand new polls for first place in the party.
