New Delhi: The online Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting convened on Monday 23 August after 23 senior Congress leaders, wrote to party’s interim-Chief Sonia Gandhi focusing on a 5-Point agenda to infuse new life in the party, turned into a massive battle-ground after Rahul Gandhi, with his back to the wall, reportedly took a jibe at the dissenting leaders and said that they were hand in glove with the BJP.
Senior party leader Kapil Sibal first slammed Rahul on his purported statement but later posted a tweet saying:
“Was informed by Rahul Gandhi personally that he never said what was attributed to him. I therefore withdraw my tweet.”
Earlier, there was a massive reaction to Rahul’s “uncalled for” statement and four CWC members, including Ghulam Nabi Azad and Kapil Sibal, abandoned the meeting. Priyanka Vadra was quick in joining her brother. She said that the dissenting leaders have a double-face as they were now saying what was not in the letter that led to Monday’s CWC meeting.
