Lok Sabha MP Shashi Tharoor has said it was “unfair” to her to carry the “interim chief’s burden indefinitely” when Sonia Gandhi finished one year tenure in office as interim president of Congress.
Congress MP Shashi Tharoor embraced the Sonia Gandhi’s reappointment as interim president. He stated that it is unfair for her to shoulder the entire responsibility of the party.
“We should be clear about our leadership going forward. I welcomed Sonia Ji’s appointment as interim president last year. But I do believe it is unfair to her to expect her to carry this burden indefinitely,” Tharoor said to ANI, a national news agency while asked regarding the end of one-year of Sonia Gandhi’s time period as party’s interim president.
“This is very clear that neither politics nor political parties permit or tolerate a vacuum. Just like nature abhors a vacuum, political parties cannot function in a vacuum. It is true that the tenure is expiring tomorrow. There is a laid down procedure in the party constitution for elections. As you know, it goes through the CWC etc.”, he added.
A section of the Congress demands that Rahul Gandhi should return to the post he gave up in May 2019.
