Amid a war of words between party leaders, the Congressional Special Committee will meet today
After facing defeat in the Bihar assembly elections and by-elections, a special committee meeting will be held on Tuesday to assist the acting president of Congress, Sonia Gandhi.
According to the information received from the sources, a meeting will be held at 5 in the afternoon via videoconference, but its agenda is not clear.
This meeting takes place at a time when the issue of review in Congress has been emerging after the defeat in the elections. Kapil Sibal, one of 23 congressional leaders who wrote a letter to Sonia Gandhi a few months ago to demand reforms in the party, has demanded a new review of the defeat, after which he has been criticized by other leaders in Congress.
From Rajasthan’s Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot to Delhi’s Congress Speaker Anil Chaudhary, Congressional leaders target Sibal for raising questions.
Amid all this, Sonia Gandhi’s advisory committee meeting is giving rise to much speculation. In August, a Special Committee was formed to assist the Acting President of Congress, Sonia Gandhi, with organizational and operational matters.
Ahmed Patel, KC Venugopal, AK Antony, Ambika Soni, Mukul Wasnik, Randeep Surjewala are its members. The important thing is that due to poor health, Ahmed Patel is admitted to the hospital. Despite this, doubts arise as to whether a new storm is brewing within Congress.
The Congress is blamed for the defeat of the Grand Alliance (Mahagathbandhan) in the recently concluded Bihar elections. In Mahagathbandhan, the success rate of RJD and the left-wing parties was over 50 percent, while Congress was only able to win 19 seats out of 70 seats it contested.
Congress won only nine of the 28 seats in the Madhya Pradesh by-elections. Congress failed to win a single seat in the by-elections in two assembly seats in Karnataka and eight assembly seats in Gujarat. The performance of Congress was also disappointing at UP, where Priyanka Gandhi is in charge.
RJD leaders have also raised questions about the Congress party’s attitude towards the Bihar Assembly polls. RJD leader Shivanand Tiwari has taken over the leadership of the party saying they did not pay attention to the campaign, as many high-level leaders such as Priyanka Gandhi, former Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and even the Acting President of Congress, Sonia Gandhi, did not appear for the vote.
