Rahul and Sonia could offer to resign at CWC meet
Senior party leaders speaking in private are severely critical of some key advisers of Rahul Gandhi, while some have chosen to go public finding fault with the ticket distribution.
Those who are in the firing line of a section of leaders include Jairam Ramesh, Mohan Gopal, Madhusudan Mistry, Mohan Prakash and Ajay Maken.
There was also media speculation that Congress president Sonia Gandhi and vice president Rahul Gandhi could offer to resign during the CWC meet, which has been called to take stock of the political situation in the aftermath of results.
However, top sources in the party trashed such speculation.
‘It is all rubbish. This is not the way to go forward. That is not the solution,’ the sources close to the top leadership said.
The meeting of the CWC has been convened on 19 May even as questions were being raised over the leadership of Rahul Gandhi as well as the over-all election strategy of the party, besides the performance of the UPA-II government.
