There does not seem to be any ruckus in the Congress over Kapil Sibal’s statement. After Ashok Gehlot, now Congress leader in the Lok Sabha, Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary, has also targeted Kapil Sibal. He said that Kapil Sibal is not our leader on who’s statements we should give answers.
Choudhary said that the Congress has a style of working, work is being done on the new president of the party, when it is completed then the announcement will be made. He said that it is Corona period, we cannot call a meeting only because some party leaders want the president of the party. Targeting Kapil Sibal, he said that, we do not need to comment on everything Kapil Sibal says. He is not our leader.
“People do not consider Congress an effective option”- Kapil Sibal
Let us tell you that in an interview given to the English newspaper, senior Congress leader Kapil Sibal had spoken about the need for introspection within the party in view of the results of Bihar assembly elections and Madhya Pradesh by-election. He said in the interview, “People of the country, not only in Bihar, but wherever the by-elections were held, apparently people do not consider Congress an effective option. This is a conclusion. The option in Bihar was RJD. We all in Gujarat lost the by-election. We did not win even a single seat in the Lok Sabha elections. In many seats in Uttar Pradesh, Congress candidates got less than 2 per cent votes. I hope the Congress will introspect. ”
“He (Kapil Sibal) is very concerned about the Congress party”- Adhir Ranjan
It is worth mentioning that earlier on Tuesday also, Adhir Ranjan Chaudhary had said in a conversation with reporters that, ‘Kapil Sibal had talked about this earlier. He is very concerned about the Congress party and the need for introspection. But we did not even see his face in Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh or Gujarat elections.
