NEW DELHI: The criticism by Congress spokesman Sanjay Jha that the party was in a state of drift and lacked the mechanism to consider suggestions to rebuild itself triggered an uproar while drawing strong disapproval from the AICC. Jha expressed his views on Congress in a column in the TOI.
Amid social media chatter on Jha’s criticism of Congress, there were murmurs within the party of leadership vacuum after Rahul Gandhi’s resignation following the 2019 poll disaster.
Asked about the charge that Congress had failed to provide effective direction to the opposition during the coronavirus pandemic and lacked the internal mechanism to consider grievances, party spokesman Ajay Maken said, “We will reach out to Jha and find out what is on his mind. The Congress chief has created a consultative group. Why does not Jha speak to its members? I don’t think there is any dearth of internal mechanisms in the party.”
