Earlier, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot had also targeted Kapil Sibal and said that it is not right to take the internal issue of the party to the media.
After a bitter defeat in the Bihar elections, there is a growing discord within the Congress. In the Congress vs Congress dispute, now party’s leader in Lok Sabha Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary has taken on Kapil Sibal. Taking a dig at Kapil Sibal for commenting on the dismal performance of the Congress in Bihar elections and by-elections, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury has said that speaking without doing anything does not mean introspection.
Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary said, “yKapil Sibal had talked about this earlier. He is very concerned about the Congress party and the need for introspection. But we did not see his face in Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh or Gujarat elections.”
The comments came after Congress leader Kapil Sibal in an interview advocated the need for introspection within the party in view of the results of the Bihar Legislative Assembly elections and Madhya Pradesh by-election.
Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary said,” If Kapil Sibal had gone to Bihar and Madhya Pradesh, he could have proved that what he is saying is correct and this has strengthened the position of Congress. Just talking will do nothing. Speaking without doing anything does not mean introspection.”
Earlier, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot had also targeted Kapil Sibal and said that it is not right to take the internal issue of the party to the media and this will hurt the morale of workers across the country.
Kapil Sibal raised questions on leadership?
Former Union Minister Kapil Sibal has also questioned the leadership of the party. When Sibal was asked in the interview whether the party leadership is seeing the Bihar defeat as another loss, he said, “I don’t know. I am just talking about myself here. I did not hear the leadership telling me anything. Therefore, I do not know. I only hear voices around leadership. We are still waiting for his opinion from the Congress party on the recent performance in Bihar elections and by-elections.” Sibal said, “It may also be that they think everything is fine and take it as business as usual.”
