Party Leaders Asking Sonia Gandhi To ‘Resign’ Yet Again Highlights The Internal Disagreement In Congress Clan

Sonia Gandhi yesterday decided to step down as Congress President after a massive controversy in the opposition clan. As many as 20 top party leaders have written a letter to Sonia Gandhi seeking reforms, introspection and “a full-time, visible leadership”.

Sonia Gandhi, 73, will either resign immediately or give the party a deadline to find a new chief. The meeting of the Congress Working Committee, the party’s top decision-making body, will happen today.

On Sunday, Mr Tharoor tweeted a quote by Jawaharlal Nehru that read, “Without passion and urge, there is a gradual oozing out of hope and vitality, a settling down on lower levels of existence, a slow merging into non-existence. We have become prisoners of the past and some part of its immobility sticks to us”.
