Dissent in Congress? Senior leaders urge party members to refrain from making comments on Rahul Gandhi

Rahul Gandhi, vice president of Congress

By NewsGram Staff Writer
Amid simmering noises in the ranks of Congress, the party on Wednesday asked its senior leaders to renounce from making “open” comments that could potentially scrape up “unnecessary controversy”.

“Senior leaders should refrain from making open comments. They should not create unnecessary controversy as interested sections want to create confusion,” P.C. Chacko, party spokesperson said in response to questions regarding Sheila Dikshit’s comment on party vice president Rahul Gandhi.

Earlier, Shiela Dikshit, former chief minister of Delhi, had said, “(in case of) Rahul, of course, there is a question mark, there is skepticism because you have not seen him perform as yet.”

However, the former Delhi chief minister later denied having made such comments.

Denying all the speculations about any rift within the party over the leadership role of Rahul Gandhi, Chacko said that there was “no conflict” between the two as their leadership was totally acceptable to Congress party.

“The entire Congress party is in full support of both the leaders. President and the vice president are two different positions in the party and they are performing their duties very well,” he added.

Former Punjab chief minister and MP Captain Amarinder Singh had also reportedly suggested in an interview that Sonia Gandhi should continue as party president because she is the only force that could keep the party together.

Congress leader and Sheila Dikshit’s son Sandeep Dikshit also expressed similar opinion in an interview to a news channel.
