New Delhi: As the Congress reels under resignations of senior leaders, Congress MP Manish Tewari said the party needs “introspection” and there seems to be a “gap” between India and the Congress.
Manish Tewari was among the 23 top Congress leaders who had written to party chief Sonia Gandhi two years ago seeking organisational changes.
While senior leader Ghulam Nabi Azad quit the party following severe criticism of Rahul Gandhi, another senior Congressman Anand Sharma has resigned from the party panel citing “self-respect”.
“Two years ago, 23 of us wrote to Sonia Gandhi that the party’s situation was worrisome and should be taken seriously. After that letter, the Congress has lost all the assembly elections. If the Congress and India had one thinking, now it seems that they have a different thinking.”
Referring to a meeting of the Congress high command two years ago, the MP from Anandpur Sahib in Punjab said, “There seems to be a gap in the coordination that exists between India and the Congress since 1885. Introspection is needed. I think this situation would not have arisen had the meeting held at Sonia Gandhi’s residence on December 20, 2020, been agreed upon.”
