As the Congress party is struggling very hard to launch a comeback after facing a massive washout in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the party’s senior leader Salman Khurshid on Tuesday said that it is high time to analyze the reason for its defeat and understand the message of the verdict. He also accused the former Congress president Rahul Gandhi for not carrying out the analysis because Rahul Gandhi resigned from the Congress President post, which had left a vacuum in the party.
Salman Khurshid, who was a former External Affairs Minister, said he was not satisfied and happy with the temporary arrangements that were made by the party by installing Sonia Gandhi as the interim president of Indian National Congress. “I am not happy with that. Whoever is our leader, I want him or her to stay. I want them to stay,” he told to the Indian Express.
He told he is displaying his “agony” so that his agony gets registered somewhere. Regarding the prospects of Indian National Congress in the states such as Haryana and Maharashtra Assembly elections, he hoped that the party is ready to fight a battle. “We got a new leadership in Haryana and elsewhere, I hope we are ready,” he said. When he was asked about the divisions in the party in Haryana and Maharashtra, he said, “Those problems are there for everyone to see. But we just have to handle them. What I am saying is let’s handle it. Time is short.”
