Ghulam Nabi Azad resigned from Congress: Key points of his letter to Sonia Gandhi

In the scathing attack on Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, party stalwart Ghulam Nabi Azad on Friday wrote a letter to party president Sonia Gandhi, who quit all party posts, saying the situation in the Congress was at the point of “no return”.

Stating that one circle is taking all the decisions, Azad said Rahul Gandhi has “demolished” the advisory mechanism in the party ever since he took over.

Here are the highlights of Azad’s resignation letter:

After Mr. Rahul Gandhi enters politics and especially after January 2013 when he was appointed by you as the Vice President, the entire consultative machinery that existed earlier he was dismantled. All senior and experienced leaders were sidelined and a new circle of inexperienced sycophants ran the affairs of the party.

The most vivid example of this immaturity was the tearing down of a government ordinance by Mr. Rahul Gandhi under the glare of the media. The said ordinance was included in the Congress Core Group and subsequently approved unanimously by the Union Cabinet headed by the Prime Minister of India and also duly approved by the President of India. This ‘childish’ behaviour completely distorted the authority of the Prime Minister and the Government of India.

The party’s situation has worsened since the 2019 elections. Rahul Gandhi stepped down in haste before insulting all the senior functionaries of the party who laid down their lives in the Extended Working Committee meeting after Sh, you took over as the interim president.

Worse yet, the ‘remote control model’ that undermines the institutional integrity of the UPA government has now been implemented in the Indian National Congress. While you are only a nominal person, all important decisions were being taken by Mr. Rahul Gandhi or rather by his security guards and PAs.

Unfortunately, the condition of the Congress party has become such that now ‘behind the scenes are being put up to take over the leadership of the party. This experiment is doomed to fail because the party is so widely destroyed that the situation has become irreparable.
