No 'brain drain', young leaders will be given responsible positions: Cong
New Delhi: Days after Jyotiraditya Scindia's shocking move to the BJP, the Congress on Friday asserted that no "brain drain" was happening in the party and said young leaders would be attended to and given responsible positions going forward.
Dismissing suggestions that there could be more leaders who may quit the party after Scindia, the Congress' chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said there comes a time in life when one has to choose an ideology over the allure of a post that one may get in an ideology which one may have no faith in.
"I do not think that there is any brain drain happening in the Congress party as Rahul Gandhi himself answered vis-a- vis Jyotiraditya Scindia yesterday," Surjewala said at a party press
"Even if a person leaves the Congress party, we are all deeply hurt. However, Jyotiraditya ji or any other person needs to think whether their core ideology is far more important than the temporary allure of a post and a position in power," he said.
The Congress leader said the day people in the party start making a clear distinction between ideology and the lure of a post, then everything will fall in place.
