Congress clarifies rumours, says no front seat demanded for Rahul Gandhi

New Delhi | The Congress on Tuesday has said that it has not demanded a front-row seat for Rahul Gandhi in the Lok Sabha.

They dismissed media reports stating the contrary as “propaganda”.

The Congress’ clarification came after media reports claimed the government has ignored the Congress party’s demand for an additional front-row seat in the Lok Sabha.

“Neither Rahul Ji nor Congress Party have ever put forward any demand for ‘Front Row’ seat at Parliament for Rahul Gandhi ji,” Congress’ leader in the Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury tweeted.

“We have proposed seat no. 466 for Rahul Gandhi ji. Desist from false propaganda,” he said.

Reports came up that Congress was given only two seats in the front row, one for UPA chairman Sonia Gandhi and one for party leader Adhir Ranjan Chowdhary.

Rahul Gandhi has resigned from the post of party leadership after taking responsibility for the massive defeat in the recently concluded Lok Sabha polls.

The Congress is seeing internal turmoil ever since, including the fallout of Mumbai Congress and the struggling Congress-JD(S) in Karnataka.
