The management disaster that has bedeviled the Congress for over a yr now, largely simmering on the floor, has once more spurted, inflicting a stir within the celebration that has been struggling to stay within the reckoning ever since its boat was rocked by the ascendancy of the Modi-led BJP in 2014. This follows Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s touch upon her brother Rahul Gandhi’s views on the Congress management in an interview to the authors of a brand new ebook on the nation’s future leaders. Priyanka too has mentioned that the celebration ought to have a non-Gandhi on the helm and that she would don’t have any reservations in accepting his or her management.
Ever since Rahul Gandhi stop because the grand outdated celebration’s president after the second successive ballot debacle within the General Election final May, he has firmly stood his floor, bucking repeated calls for by senior Congress leaders to retract his resignation. However, since that didn’t result in the election or choice of a non-Gandhi chief acceptable to the faction-ridden AICC, Sonia Gandhi was chosen because the interim celebration chief final August. The matter has remained in limbo, necessitating her continuation even a yr later. The vacuum on the prime has rendered the second-most essential celebration within the nation a rudderless one.
Any additional delay within the easy transition of energy and the passing on of the baton will push the directionless organisation additional adrift within the uneven political waters. A transparent hierarchy should be established if it has to remain related.

A powerful Opposition is an important aspect for a wholesome democracy. The grand outdated celebration that has gained the arrogance of the voters for a serious chunk of the post-Independence interval owes it to the folks to get its act collectively. It could be a pity if the Congress had been to squander away its wealthy legacy. With varied names popping up recurrently for a attainable president, it’s obvious that there is no such thing as a dearth of skilled individuals of political acumen and administrative qualities able to tackle the management mantle.
