G-23 Goes After The Gandhis; Shashi Tharoor, Mani Shankar Aiyar Join Dissenting Congress leaders

“The Congress party’s debacle in the 2022 assembly election came as the latest jolt to the party. The party had thought that it will at least be able to Retain Punjab and be able to win back power in Goa and Uttarakhand but much to its surprise, the AAP wrested power in Punjab from under congress’ nose and BJP retained power in Uttarakhand and Goa despite anti-Incumbency. the Party’s humiliating defeat has now activated the famous Group of 23 leaders of the Congress party, known as G 23, who had called for an organizational revamp in the party. Interestingly enough, the G23 leaders are very seasonal. They are hardly seen during election campaigning but after the party’s loss, they come out, mostly to issue statements, call for changes in the party, give some media bytes and then going back again to square 1.

After the Congress’ recent defeat the party organized Chintan Shivir to introspect on the reasons for its defeat. The CWC meeting chaired by Sonia Gandhi also saw some heated exchange, although the members eventually issued a statement unanimously reposing their faith in the leadership of Sonia Gandhi. However, a new controversy was stoked with the statement of senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal. In an interview to Indian Express, Sibal had said that the ‘Gandhis should step aside from the leadership role and give a chance to someone else to lead the party.
