Senior Congress leader Anand Sharma who recently jolted the Congress party by resigning as chairman of Steering Committee for Himachal Pradesh polls has spoken on the party’s future and Rahul Gandhi
Speaking to ANI , Sharma said , We elected Rahul Gandhi as Congress president in 2018, but it was he who resigned, we did not ask him to resign. It is important that the Nehru-Gandhi family remains integral. Congress does require inclusive and collective thinking and approach.
On what should be the way for the revival of the Congress ahead, Sharma further elaborated, to ANI , by saying , If we bring about some internal changes, renewal and revival of Congress will be done. Congress cannot revive by having A group or B group, Congress collectively has to revive.
On his future task , Sharma reiterated by saying, I will campaign for the Congress party wherever it is required. Congress needs to come out of factionalism and stay united. We are all Congressmen. What is important is that the Congress party stays strong.
Earlier, Anand Sharma had tweeted about his move to step down from the party position in Himachal Pradesh
