Calls grow for Rahul Gandhi’s return at helm

With Sonia Gandhi set to finish her one-year tenure as interim Congress president on August 10, and the social gathering exhibiting no indicators of putting in a mechanism to elect its subsequent chief, some sections of the social gathering have began demanding that Rahul Gandhi return to the post he gave up in May 2019, proudly owning accountability for the social gathering’s rout within the basic elections.

The calls for got here in three conferences: the Congress Working Committee (CWC) assembly on June 23; at Sonia Gandhi’s deliberations with the social gathering’s Lok Sabha members on July 11; and through her interplay with the social gathering’s Rajya Sabha MPs on July 30.

To ensure, not everybody within the social gathering has made the demand or supported it.

One Congress chief said on situation of anonymity that he sees it because the accountability of Rahul Gandhi to assuage the issues of each veterans and members of the younger brigade as a result of there’s seen unease between the 2 teams over the management subject and their future within the social gathering.

His reference is to the long-simmering battle between the social gathering’s previous guard and its youthful members — which got here to fore most lately throughout Sonia Gandhi’s assembly with Rajya Sabha MPs.

While Sonia Gandhi shouldn’t be eager to proceed within the post, Rahul Gandhi has not proven any inclination to take up the accountability. “But circumstances can change any time,” the chief added.

The demand has additionally come from outdoors the Congress. Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar last week advised that Rahul Gandhi ought to take up the Congress president’s post, begin a dialog with social gathering leaders and staff, and undertake a nationwide “yatra” to galvanise the Congress cadre and reconnect with the individuals who have moved away from the grand previous social gathering through the years.

Pawar’s views had been echoed by senior Congress leaders and Rajya Sabha members Digvijaya Singh and Partap Singh Bajwa.

“I agree. He (Rahul Gandhi) is different and wants to do politics differently. We should allow him to do so but then we also would like him to be more active in Parliament and more accessible to people. As advised by Sharad Pawar he should travel around India. Yatras are important to connect,” Singh tweeted on Saturday.

Bajwa said Rahul Gandhi ought to first develop into the Congress president after which tour the nation. “I request the Congress president to settle the leadership issue once and for all. The issue has to be tackled anyway otherwise we are ceding ground to the BJP every day.”

Bajwa said it was the “relentless campaign” carried out by Rahul Gandhi in Punjab, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh that ensured the social gathering’s victories in these states and even Gujarat, the place he introduced the Congress throughout the hanging distance of ousting the BJP from energy. One of the architect’s of the social gathering’s Madhya Pradesh win, Jyotiraditya Scindia has left the social gathering for the BJP, after he was marginalised within the state and the social gathering’s central management selected to not intervene. Legislators allied with him resigned from the social gathering too — inflicting the collapse of the Kamal Nath authorities. More lately, Sachin Pilot, credited with having performed a big function within the social gathering’s win in Rajasthan, and lawmakers loyal to him have damaged ranks with the social gathering over variations with chief minister Ashok Gehlot, though they haven’t left the social gathering. The growth has left the Gehlot authorities with a wafer-thin majority.

Experts said the clamour for Gandhi’s ascendancy to President as soon as once more highlights the truth that the social gathering doesn’t wish to take the more durable route of holding elections and discovering a brand new chief from outdoors the Nehru-Gandhi household.

Hyderabad-based political analyst C Narasimha Rao said, “Many Congress leaders do not want internal elections as they are comfortable with the nomination process and hence push for the easy route. Also, the Gandhi family does not want to give up the control of the party though some argue that it is the only binding force.”
