Dive In


The CWC unanimously reaffirms its faith in the leadership of Ms. Gandhi and requests the Congress President to lead from the front, address the organisational weaknesses, effect necessary and comprehensive organisational changes to take on the political challenges.

That’s what the Congress Working Committee concluded in its resolution after Sonia Gandhi offered to step down—along with her children Rahul and Priyanka—and said they are ready to offer any “sacrifice” if asked. The offer was firmly rejected. Instead, many clamoured for Rahul to return as president. The party will now undertake a “chintan shivir” to see where it went wrong in the state elections. More things change for Congress’ fortunes, absolutely nothing changes in its response to defeat.
