'Rahul Gandhi Unfit To Lead,' Says Delhi Congress Leader Barkha Shukla Singh

MCD polls MCD polls Congress Congress youth manifest MCD polls Congress manifesto Ajay Maken Delhi civic polls India news Delhi news Indian Express

In the run-up to the MCD polls, scheduled to be held on April 23, the Congress has launched a campaign demanding registration of an FIR on the basis of the Shunglu Committee report, the content of which has been brought to the public domain by Maken through an RTI application. "Why does Rahul Gandhi shy away from meeting party leaders who ask him questions", she asked. "That is also a reason for people leaving the party", she said.

Two days after Arvinder Singh Lovely left Congress for BJP, the party's women wing chief in the city, Barkha Shukla Singh, has taken a dig at both vice-president Rahul Gandhi and its Delhi unit chief, Ajay Maken, while resigning from the post. "That's why I am resigning from the post", she said.

Charging the Congress vice president with not meeting party leaders, she said Gandhi was "reluctant" to address "issues" within the party organisation.

"The party will go down to a new low under his leadership", she said, adding that "in front of the camera, they call for his anointing, but behind the camera they abuse him".

With utmost regret I have to say that the Congress Party under the leadership of Mr Rahul Gandhi and Mr Ajay Maken have only used the issue of empowerment of women and women security to gather votes and it means nothing to them.

Rahul Gandhi has earlier been accused by other partymen of ignoring them.

Other Delhi leaders of the Congress have also complained about Mr Maken, who was hand-picked to be the party's Delhi chief with a brief to pull the party out of a political morass.

"It is because of this attitude of Rahul Gandhi and Ajay Maken that as many as five districts presidents and 75 block presidents resigned from the organisation".

"The one pertinent question we need to ask today is why is Rahul Gandhi in hiding?" Why is he scared of meeting his own party members?
