Senior Congress leader Shashi Tharoor said on Sunday that the Congress is still the most reliable opposition party in the country and hence it needs to be reformed and revived.
Sharing a chart of the number of MLAs from different parties in the country, he tweeted, “This is the reason why Congress remains the most credible National Opposition party. That is why reforms and revitalization are necessary.” Tharoor’s remarks came at a time when discussions were going on in the Congress Working Committee meeting over the defeat in the recent assembly elections.
Congress leader Shashi Tharoor on Thursday said the time has come to re-emphasize the ‘Idea of India’ (idea of India) after the party’s rout in the five-state assembly elections and take the party’s organizational leadership. Improvements should be made in such a way that it can inspire people.
Tharoor, a Lok Sabha member, tweeted, “Those who believe in Congress are hurt by the results of these assembly elections. Now the time has come to re-emphasise the idea of India, on which the Congress has stood. The organizational leadership should be changed in such a way that it can rekindle the flame of these ideas and inspire people.” He also said, “One thing is clear that if we have to be successful then change is inevitable. ‘
