Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi called a meeting of the Congress Working Committee today. This meeting churned out the party's defeat in the assembly elections held in five states. Congress President Sonia Gandhi said that the party will have to focus on its failures in the assembly elections and face the reality to draw the right lessons.
Addressing an important meeting of the Congress Working Committee (CWC), Sonia Gandhi said that she intends to set up a small group to look into every aspect that led to such a change.
It was also told in this meeting that the election of the next president of Congress will be held in late June. Today it can be announced in detail. Apart from former PM Manmohan Singh, the Congress Working Committee also includes AK Antony and Ghulam Nabi Azad of the disgruntled faction of the party G-23.
Very disappointed with the defeat in elections- Sonia Gandhi
In this meeting called for the churning of the Congress in the elections, Sonia Gandhi said that while we are all busy with COVID19, this meeting has been called to discuss the election results. To say that we are deeply disappointed is to make sense. I intend to set up a small group to look at every aspect and report very quickly. He said that we need to clearly understand why we failed to dislike inconsistent goons in Kerala and Assam and our account could not be opened in West Bengal. These will give uncomfortable lessons, but if we do not face the reality, if we do not keep the facts in front, then we will not take the right lesson.
Election of Congress President by the end of June
Speaking at the meeting of the Congress Working Committee, Sonia Gandhi said that when we met on January 22, we decided that the process of election of the Congress President would be completed by the end of June. He said that Madhusudan Mistry, the chairman of the Election Authority, has prepared the outline. Venugopal will read it after our discussion on COVID19 and the election results.
Government targeted for Corona epidemic and vaccine
In this meeting, the interim president of the Congress, Sonia Gandhi, has targeted the Modi government regarding the vaccine. Sonia Gandhi said that the Modi government has relinquished its responsibility and left vaccination on the states. He said that providing free vaccines to all states by the Center would be more justified financially.
Sonia Gandhi said that the situation of COVID-19 has become even more frightening. Governance failures have become even more drastic. The public health system has collapsed across the country. The Modi government discharged its responsibility. Other priorities of the Modi government are to pursue grand projects on the strength of public opinion.
