Sonia Gandhi took note of the opinion of ‘Saamana’ on the polls of the Assembly: Shiv Sena | India News
MUMBAI: The Shiv Sena on wednesday he said Maharashtra Congressional leaders may say they don’t read the Sena spokesperson ‘Saamana’, but Congress boss Sonia gandhi he had taken note of his article asking why his party could not defeat the incumbent governments in Assam and Kerala.
An editorial in the Marathi publication also sought to find out who was responsible for the lack of grassroots leadership in Congress, whose history dates back to the fight for freedom.
He also said that Congress will have to function as a “strong opposition party in the future.”
Congress suffered a beating at the hands of the ruling BJP in Assam and the LDF in Kerala during recent Assembly elections in the two states.
In particular, the Speaker of the Maharashtra Congress, Nana Patole, recently said that he stopped reading ‘Saamana’ and that Shiv Sena should not comment on his party and his leadership.
However, the Marathi daily said on Wednesday: “Sonia Gandhi asked why Congress could not defeat the incumbent governments in Assam and Kerala despite putting up a good fight. The same question was asked through this column in ‘ Saamana ‘”.
If senior leaders in Congress have read the editorial and relayed the feedback from the grassroots level to Sonia Gandhi, “it is good,” said Sena, who shares power in Maharashtra with the NCP and Congress.
Said head of TMC Mamata banerjee, the Prime Minister of West Bengal, and the new CMs of Assam (Himanta Biswa Sarma) and Puducherry (N Rangawamy) are former leaders of Congress.
“These three had to resign from Congress and then emerged as strong leaders,” the editorial noted.
Said Congress Leader Rahul gandhi He was fighting the BJP alone and despite facing severe criticism, he always makes his point.
“In the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, Rahul Gandhi criticized the Center at various points and also made suggestions. After severely criticizing him, the government had made decisions on the suggestions made by him,” the editorial stated.
The Sena said that Rahul Gandhi is the “senapati” (commander) of Congress and that his attacks on the government are specific and to the point, he added.
The editorial also said that Congress will have to function as a strong opposition party in the future.
He claimed that there was “anger” among the people against the central government on issues such as unemployment, the economic crisis, inflation, and its handling of the Covid-19 situation.
“At this time, all the main opposition parties will have to come down from the branches of ‘Twitter’ to the political arena … coming to the ground does not mean inviting crowds (at the time of the pandemic), but questioning the government all the days and hold him accountable, “said Sena.
Congress must take the initiative and Sonia Gandhi must want to deliver the same message. She is still the president of Congress and it is important to take note of her views, she said.
The editorial also noted that the election of the president of Congress has been postponed for the third time due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
“Even if there is no full-time president, a party functions on the strength of its grassroots cadre,” he said.
