In fresh trouble to Congress in Haryana which is slated to go for Assembly polls later this year, its state unit has been divided into two factions with one backing Ashok Tanwar while another group comprises Bhupinder Singh Hooda supporters. It reports to be believed, the primary crisis in the State Unit is the post now occupied by Ashok Tanwar, with the group supporting Former Chief Minister Hooda wanting it for themselves.

Reportedly, Hooda is also upset with the Congress President Rahul Gandhi for not making the decision in his favor while picking the state president.

In the meantime, Congress President Rahul Gandhi is slated to meet state leaders on June 27 to took stock of the situation. The State In-charge Ghulam Nabi Azad, Hooda, Kumari Sheilja, Ashok Tanwar, Kiran Chowdhry among others are expected to be present in the meeting called by Congress President.

Sources further claimed that the factions of both the bigwigs of the State are also on a war when it comes to getting a ticket for the Assembly polls that are slated for November this year.

However, State President Ashok Tanwar dismissed media reports about Hooda being upset with the party. Talking to ANI, Tanwar said, ‘All these news are false and misinformation, we all are together and united. You will very soon see all of us together working for a future challenge’.

Both – Tanwar and Hooda – have in the past held meetings with their supporters to review the party’s poor show and to chalk out the strategy for the state polls scheduled for later this year.

If Sources to be believed, it’s not all well in Haryana Congress. Reportedly, Congress State in-charge Ghulam Nabi Azad had earlier walked out of the meeting in past after heated argument between Hooda Supporters and Tanwar Supporters.

The internal rift and the tussle within the state unit came to the forefront at Congress War room when Congress State Chief Ashok Tanwar had an ugly spat with many leaders after which an MLA Jiatirath Dahiya wrote to Congress President Rahul Gandhi.

Congress, in the recently held national polls,  faced a humiliating defeat and bagged 52 seats which are just 8 more than what it got in 2014. In Haryana, it has lost all 10 seats of the state including Bhupinder Singh Hooda from Sonepat while his son Deepender Singh Hooda too lost from Rohtak, once a stronghold of the Hooda clan.

While the Assembly polls in the state are slated for October-November later this year.
