Cong brass unlikely to go for immediate celebration surveys


BRAND-NEW DELHI: Congress might not accede to the demand for immediate organisational elections for choosing the brand-new celebration chief and might decide for a fresh party membership drive, a choice that might indicate Sonia Gandhi continuing at the helm.
The view in Congress could indicate that the need for G23 dissenters for internal surveys, consisting of for the CWC, might not find favour with the management. The CWC can, if it so selects, call a party president who might be then ratified by the AICC.
As the Congress working committee meets on Saturday to talk about among other things the need for internal polls as sought by G23, party experts said the possibility of it being accepted is thin.
Though Congress has been riven with require the election of the brand-new chief for last one and a half years, the paradox is that the period has really taken the celebration closer to the scheduled election calendar, end-2022. The last internal surveys were held in 2017 December for a duration of five years. Rahul quit the post midway in May 2019 after the Lok Sabha debacle.
The view in the celebration is that with 5 essential assembly elections coming up in March 2022, internal survey procedure may not be possible now. In contrast, the party can initiate the subscription drive which is the needed very first action to surveys which can be held later on in the year.
Sources stated the CWC might take a view on how to tackle the next celebration election. In the absence of a clarity on the problem, speculations have actually been rife about specific Congress leaders been installed as interim arrangements, with names of Sachin Pilot and Kamal Nath floating around.
Senior leader Ghulam Nabi Azad just recently composed a letter to Congress president Sonia Gandhi where he required internal polls as likewise a discussion on the state of the celebration affairs.
While the CWC is being expected whether the conversations cause a conflict between the G23 and the loyalists, much of the meeting could focus on the coming assembly elections and the political scenario.
