Sonia Gandhi yells at G-23: Do not speak to me via media

In a veiled reference to 'rebel' Kapil Sibal, Sonia Gandhi said during the meet that she was the 'full-time and hands-on' Congress chief


Indian National Congress (INC) interim president Sonia Gandhi today (16 October) took on the group of 23 politicians, which the party leadership considers rebellious, saying that there was no need to speak to her through the media. She said she would rather appreciate frankness.

“I have always appreciated frankness. There is no need to speak to me through the media. So let us all have a free and honest discussion. But what should get communicated outside the four walls of this room is the collective decision of the Congress Working Committee (CWC),” Sonia Gandhi.

Gandhi was chairing the CWC meeting at the All India Congress Committee (AICC) office in New Delhi.

In August 2020, the G-23 group, as they have come to be identified as, of the INC wrote a letter to the interim president, demanding a slew of reforms in the organisation. Ahead of a meeting back then, the G-23 leaders demanded elections for CWC members, Central Election Committee (CEC) members, and Congress Parliamentary Board election.

“Undoubtedly, we face many challenges but if we are united, if we are disciplined and if we focus on the Party`s interests alone, I am confident that we will do well. The respective general secretaries and persons in charge will be briefing us on the states individually and so I will not like to say anything more now on this subject,” noted Gandhi.

Asserting her position in the party, Sonia Gandhi said during today’s meet that she was the “full-time and hands-on” party chief.

Earlier, senior party leader Kapil Sibal, who is a member of the G-23, had said that the party leaders were unaware of the decision-makers in the party as there was no president.

Sonia Gandhi was made interim president by CWC after her son Rahul Gandhi stepped down as the president of AICC, accepting the responsibility of poll debacle in the 2019 Lok Sabha election.

In #HongKong, an episode of “The Simpsons” that ridicules #CCP censorship was omitted on Disney+. The archive skips episode 12, where the Simpsons travel to Beijing & criticize the Tiananmen massacre. It's the Communist way: censor, intimidate & destroy.
