Ghulam Nabi Azad, the veteran Indian Politician has ended up his endeavour with congress accusing Rahul Gandhi of reducing to “ruins” what was once a “national movement” that won the country independence.
In his five page resignation letter to Sonia Gandhi, he said the party has been “comprehensively destroyed” and the situation is “irretrievable”. He alleged the upcoming party election consists of a plan to foist “proxies” as the Congress president – “puppet on a string”.
He called the internal polls a “farce and sham” and a “giant fraud” as no election had taken place in any block, district or state.
In his no-holds-barred letter, Azad said Rahul has demolished the “consultative mechanism” that existed in the party, and now the decisions are taken by his “security guards and PAs”.
He told Sonia that Rahul has propped up a “remote control model” after resigning as party chief in 2019, and she is “just a nominal figurehead” for the last three years in her capacity as interim president. Targeting Rahul, Azad said, “The remote control model demolished the institutional integrity of the UPA government.”
Sniping at Rahul Gandhi, he said Congress has lost the political space at the national level to BJP and in states to regional parties, because “the leadership in past eight years has tried to foist a non-serious individual at the helm of the party” – a not so subtle jibe at the Gandhi scion.
