new Delhi. Leaders who write a letter to the party high command on a large-scale change in the Congress are now gradually being relieved. It is believed that he has to bear the brunt of raising the question within the party itself. In fact, in a letter written to Sonia on 7 August, such ‘full time leadership’ was demanded.
Congress Working Committee re-constituted
In such a situation, now the interim president of the party, Sonia, has given a big reshuffle in the party organization, giving opportunity to Rahul’s favorite team and relieved the elderly leaders from the post of general secretary. The Congress Working Committee has been formed afresh. A new committee of 6 leaders has been formed to help Sonia in choosing the new president.

However, leaders like Ghulam Nabi Azad, Ambika Soni, Mallikarjun Kharge have been retained in the new CWC. Digvijay Singh has been included in Permanent Invitational at CWC. The new list now released, Ghulam Nabi Azad, Motilal Vora, Ambika Soni, Mallikarjun Kharge and Luijinho Falerio have been removed as general secretaries.
Interruption in Rahul’s coronation
Significantly, Ghulam Nabi was among the 23 leaders who wrote letters to Sonia Gandhi on 7 August when she was hospitalized. In this letter, these leaders had demanded such ‘full time leadership’ in the party, who were ‘active in the field and also saw its effect’. In this letter, the use of words like fulltime leadership and activeness in the field is believed that these 23 leaders do not want to see Rahul Gandhi as the President. And again Rahul Gandhi’s coronation can be a problem.
Digvijay Singh returns
At the same time, Digvijay Singh, who is often in the discussion due to his statements and former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, has returned to the Congress Working Committee after two years. At the same time, Sachin Pilot, who recently revolted from the party in Rajasthan, has been kept in the cooling-off period. What responsibility should be given to them in the party will be decided later.
The biggest shock to Ghulam Nabi Azad
Ghulam Nabi Azad has suffered the biggest blow in the new list, as he is also the Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha. In the last CWC meeting, Ghulam Nabi was at the forefront of those who opposed an alleged statement of Rahul Gandhi. It is believed that now he is also difficult to get the Rajya Sabha ticket again. Motilal Vora, Ambika Soni, Mallikarjun Kharge and former Goa Chief Minister Luizinho Falerio have been removed due to age.
Sonia Gandhi will continue as interim president
Apart from this, Sonia Gandhi will still remain the interim president if we talk about the post of Congress president. Sources in the Congress say that a session of the All India Congress Committee will take place in Punjab or Chhattisgarh early next year. In this, Rahul Gandhi is certain to be re-elected president.
