Cong reshuffle likely amid poll rumblings
NEW DELHI: The Congress’s electoral defeat in four states led to urgent introspection in the party and a working committee meeting would be announced soon to address the factors behind the debacle, sources said on Friday.
This came amid rumbling in the principal Opposition party over the poll results, with senior leader Digvijaya Singh suggesting the time for introspection was over and “surgery” was the need of the hour. Congress sources indicated a much-anticipated organisational reshuffle would take place shortly.
Singh told HT that “accountability” had to be fixed and functioning of the party “reviewed” in view of the electoral downslide. He suggested the Congress have a “margdarshak mandal” along the lines of that in the BJP.
