New Delhi: Congress president Sonia Gandhi has suggested to the party leaders to find a new chief jointly. Her response came after the letter written by senior leaders of the party. This letter has been written to her for the complete change in the arrangement of the party.
Sonia Gandhi has further declared that she doesn’t want to carry out the responsibilities any further as the chief of the party. She accepted the post of interim chief after the party urged her. It was after much persuasion and only on the condition that the party will find a suitable person for the post of the chief soon.
Party requested Rahul Gandhi to take back his resignation that he had made on May 25 after the defeat in National elections. Leaders made a desperate plea to the Sonia Gandhi after the rejection of the call of all the members by Rahul Gandi. At that time too, Sonia mentioned in her response that she had insisted that the new president should be someone from outside the Gandhi family, the functionary quoted from the letter.
Several leaders like Ghulam Nabi Azad and Kapil Siba raised the issues for the new planning in the party. Both Rajya Sabha MPs have taken the main initiative in drafting the letter.
The prominence was that the new candidate for the president post must be the outsiders and not from Gandhi Family.
