Rahul Gandhi had issues with the letter that was written by him and other party leaders for reforms in party, says Ghulam Nabi Azad

Senior Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad on Thursday said Rahul Gandhi initially had issues with the letter that was written by him and other party leaders for reforms in Party. Azad added that later, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi said elections will be held within a month. But it's not possible, due to coronavirus, so we requested her to continue as President for 6 months.

Speaking on the Congress dissenters' letter which was leaked, Azad said, "What is the big deal if the letter was leaked? It's not a state secret to ask for the party to be strengthened and hold elections. Even during the time of Indira Gandhi, the Cabinet proceedings used to get leaked."

"Those who were doing running commentary during CWC, were they not being indiscipline? Persons who were abusing us (for writing the letter), were they not being indiscipline? Shouldn't action be taken against them? We did not abuse anyone," Ghulam Nabi Azad said.

Meanwhile, rebel Congress leader Sanjay Jha hit out at Haryana Congress leader Kumari Selja for accusing 23 Congress dissenters of siding with the BJP and getting away with it. He said it was "outrageous" and "obtuse".

Referring to the stormy CWC meeting and thereafter, Jha told IANS, "No one in the party has asked her to retract her statement which was both outrageous and obtuse. But then there are many who deliberately outshout dissenting protests to please their bosses. It is obsequious behaviour."

Referring to the intimidation and accusations against the 23 dissenters who have come to be known as "G-23" by other Congress leaders during the recent Congress Working Committee meeting, Jha labelled it "absurd".
