According to Congress presidential candidate Shashi Tharoor, a few Congress leaders openly supporting his opponent Mallikarjun Kharge disturbed the level playing field.
In his remarks, Tharoor pointed out that several PCC chiefs and senior leaders were unavailable during Kharge’s visits to their states, but they welcomed him and showed their support.
As he sought votes from delegates at the Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) on Thursday, Tharoor said he wanted to bring “change” to the organization. According to him, he will work to “bring back” those voters who did not support the Congress in the 2014 and 2019 Lok Sabha elections.
In addition, the Thiruvananthapuram MP stated that he was unable to meet some delegates due to the fact that their contact information was “missing” from the list he received. The list of delegates that we received contained incomplete contact information. In some lists, there was a name but no telephone number, and in some lists, there was a name but no address. Thus, it was difficult to reach out to them,” Tharoor claimed, adding that he did not “blame anyone” for the “incomplete” lists and that there are “flaws” in the party’s system since no elections have been held for 22 years.
