Gandhis Skip Congress Steering Committee Meet in Raipur

Date:

Sources said that this is to give a clear signal that Kharge is in full command and they do not want to give the message that decisions in the party are done under the influence of the Gandhis.

RAIPUR — In a clear message to the party that Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge is firmly placed in the driving seat, the Gandhis are skipping the party’s steering committee meeting at the 85th Plenary in Raipur scheduled for 10 a.m. on Friday.

Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra are expected to land in the state capital in the afternoon.

Sources said that this is to give a clear signal that Kharge is in full command and they do not want to give the message that decisions in the party are done under the influence of the Gandhis.

Sources indicate that the meeting may decide on whether elections will be held for the Congress Working Committee (CWC), the party’s top decision making body or may be deferred for a few months.

The Steering Committee will meet in the morning and the Subject Committee in the evening.

The Congress on Thursday said that it is ready to hold elections to the CWC — where 12 members are elected.

Congress General Secretary Communications in-charge, Jairam Ramesh said: “We can clearly say about it after the Steering Committee has met and decided on the issue… the party is fully prepared for the CWC election.” — IANS
