CWC Meet Dwell Updates: Key Congress Meet In the present day; Sonia Gandhi Decided To Give up As Celebration Chief


Sonia Gandhi, according to sources, does not want to continue as interim Congress president.

New Delhi:

The Congress Working Committee, the party’s top decision-making body, will be meeting today amid a massive controversy over a letter by more than 20 top party leaders calling for sweeping reforms, introspection and “a full-time, visible leadership”.

Sonia Gandhi, 73, looks set to announe her decision to resign as the interim President. She may immediately or give the party a deadline to find a new chief, sources said ahead of a meeting of the party’s top decision-making body.

Over 20 Congress leaders have, in a letter, called for a “full-time”, “effective leadership” that will be “visible” and “active” in the field, sources said. It also called for “honest introspection” and suggested a “collective leadership”, reforms including decentralisation of power, empowerment of state units and organizational elections at every level, sources said.

The working committee meeting last month saw arguments and sharp criticism by younger leaders who were seen to blame the party’s last government for its massive downfall since. The younger leaders reportedly said those who were part of the last UPA government should take the blame for the Congress’s rapid decline.

Mr Gandhi had stepped down from the top post last year after the party’s second consecutive defeat in general elections. Before stepping down from the post, he had said the party should search for a new leader outside the Gandhi family. He has specifically said his mother and sister should not be roped in.
