Leadership issue to be prominent in Congress Working Committee meeting on Monday: Report

| @indiablooms | 23 Aug 2020, 12:29 am

New Delhi/IBNS: The Congress Working Committee (CWC), the top decision making body of the party, will hold a virtual meeting on Monday to discuss a host of agenda, including the leadership issue over which the party saw its trusted lieutenants clash some three weeks ago.

According to media reports, Sonia Gandhi, 73, who reluctantly took up the charge of party's interim-chief a year ago after her son Rahul Gandhi refused the top post following a debacle in 2019 Lok Sabha elections, does not want to continue due to her health.

Of late, there has been dissatisfaction within the party over its functioning and lack of direction.

Reports said, while there are voices in support of Rahul Gandhi, there is a significant section critical of him and feels that the party must have a relook before electing him as the party president.

They argue that Rahul Gandhi and his team lack political experience and  have turned him into a non-performing asset electorally, reports add.

There is a strong need to decide who will lead the party in 2024 Lok Sabha elections against Prime Minister Narendra Modi, they feel.

According to an NDTV report, on Monday the CWC members are likely to urge interim-president Sonia Gandhi to continue and in case she declines most members are likely to maintain their solidarity with Rahul Gandhi and his sister Priyanka Gandhi.
