New Delhi: “Performance must replace parikrama (sycophancy)” in the Congress party, senior Union Minister Jairam Ramesh said today, urging Rahul Gandhi to have a young team.
Ramesh, who recently suggested that all Congress leaders should retire at 70, a view from which party distanced itself, described Rahul as “marathon man, a long distance runner”.
“Gandhi has plans of reorganising the party and he should have a young team. He must have a young team”, Ramesh told PTI in an interview.
“Performance must replace parikrama. We have seen lot of politics of the parikrama. Now there should be politics of performance,” he said.
In political parlance parikrama means sycophancy.
