Earlier this week, the party has called a meeting of all general secretaries to discuss the issue of the leadership crisis. Many senior leaders including Shatrughan Sinha and Punjab Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh, have openly backed the name of Priyanka Gandhi to lead the grand old year party.
Singh said he has no doubt that Priyanka Gandhi would get support from all file and rank across all states. He added Priyanka Gandhi is the only leader who is a good bet to replace Rahul Gandhi.
Prior to this Shatrughan Sinha also backed the name of Priyanka Gandhi for next national president of the party.
This will be the first meeting of party’s general secretaries after Rahul Gandhi officially stepped down from Congress President Post saying that he is responsible for the party poor show in the national elections 2019.
Rahul Gandhi, days after Congress faced a crushing defeat in national polls, had on May 25 tendered his resignation in a CWC Meeting taking moral responsibility of the defeat. However, many leaders from the party tried to convince him but Gandhi remains unmoved and later on July 3 officially announced that it will be continuing as the party president.
