100 Congress leaders wrote to Sonia Gandhi seeking leadership change, Claims Suspended Leader

Vastavam web: Congress leader Sanjay Jha, suspended by the party last month after he wrote an article criticising the Gandhi family, on Monday claimed that around 100 party leaders, including MPs, have written a letter to interim party president Sonia Gandhi, seeking change in political leadership and ‘transparent’ elections in the Congress Working Committee. Notably, Jha’s tweet comes at a time there has been a clamour within the party for Rahul Gandhi’s return as the Congress president. The 50-year-old leader, who had taken over from his mother in December 2017, had resigned last July after the Congress’ second successive general election rout, and has frequently stressed that he won’t take back his resignation. His resignation saw Sonia Gandhi return as interim president last August, after having led the party for 19 years-from 1998 to 2017.
