Congress is at its lowest level in 72 years, says rebel leader Ghulam Nabi Azad
Congressional leader Ghulam Nabi Azad reiterated his demand for party reform on Sunday, saying there are no changes to his demand for internal elections. He said these elections are necessary if Congress wants to become a national alternative.
“Congress is at its lowest level in 72 years. Congress does not even hold the position of Leader of the Opposition in Lok Sabha for the last two terms. But Congress won nine seats in the Ladakh hill council elections, even when we did not expect such a positive result, “said Azad.
Questioning the party’s leadership, Azad said: “So far, let’s change the way we function at all levels, things will not change. The leadership needs to give the party workers a program and hold elections for the posts. One should be so indispensable that the leadership asks for it in his absence.
Seeking elections to revive the party, the congressional leader said: “I am giving Gandhis a good grade due to the Covid-19 pandemic as they cannot do much at the moment. There are no changes in our demands. They have accepted most of our demands. Our leadership should hold elections if they want to become a national alternative and revive the party. “
