Chintan Shivir: Controversy over the post of Congress President, Parliamentary Board’s demand accepted ocn news

In the Congress Chintin Shivir, the situation of apprehension regarding the new Congress President is clearly visible. While a big group is talking about handing over the command of the party to Rahul Gandhi, on the other hand leaders like Acharya Pramod Krishnam are demanding to make Priyanka Gandhi the national president of the party. Acharya Pramod even put this demand on Saturday. However, in the ongoing Chintan Shivir in Udaipur, the demand of the dissidents that a parliamentary board of the party should be formed seems to be being met.

On Saturday, party leader Acharya Pramod Krishnam said that since two years efforts are being made to persuade Rahul Gandhi. If he is not ready, then Priyanka Gandhi Vadra should be made the president of the party. He said this in the presence of Sonia Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi. No one responded while Rajya Sabha MP Mallikarjun Kharge interrupted him.

Acharya Pramod Krishnam is not alone. MP Deepender Hooda also said that Priyanka Gandhi Vadra should be brought to the national level and not confined to just one state. During this discussion, Congress’s Gujarat in-charge Raghu Sharma said that if the party does not improve, it will end. He said that if the Congress does not win the upcoming state elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh, there is no hope of the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Congress parliamentary board will be formed

A major demand of dissidents in the party for the formation of Congress Parliamentary Board has been accepted as a suggestion in the party meeting in Rajasthan. The suggestion now needs the approval of the Congress Working Committee, the highest decision-making body in the party. This is a major demand that the Congress election committee which decides the candidates for the Lok Sabha and assembly elections will be replaced.

It is not clear whether elections for this new post will be held or whether it will be constituted by regular members or the nomination will be left to the apex Congress body by the party president. On the question of alliances with other political parties, the 137-year-old party wants to forge state-wise alliances with various parties that do not have an alliance with the BJP. The Congress plans to increase the representation of Scheduled Castes (SC), Scheduled Tribes (ST), Other Backward Classes (OBC) and minorities to 50 percent at all levels of the organization. Top Congress leaders from across the country have gathered in Udaipur for a three-day brainstorming conference to improve the party’s strategy and organization on key issues.
