Sibal’s remarks were followed by leaders who believed in the leadership of the Gandhi family and accused him of speaking the language of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
< p style="text-align: justify;">Senior party leader Sibal told the English daily ‘Indian Express’. It has been said in an interview given that the Gandhi family should separate from the leadership of the Congress party and give a chance to someone else. He also said that he was the ‘Congress of the Ghar’. No, but ‘Sabki Congress’ want.
Congress’s ‘G 23’ Sibal, a member of the group, made the remarks two days after the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting. In the CWC meeting, Congress leaders expressed confidence in the leadership of Sonia Gandhi and asked her to continue in office till the organizational elections are over and take necessary steps to strengthen the party.
‘Why are you speaking the language of RSS/BJP?’
Kheda alluded to the defeat of Sibal by Harsh Vardhan in the 2014 Lok Sabha elections in Delhi’s Chandni Chowk Lok Sabha seat.
