The controversy regarding presidentship of the district Mahila Congress refuses to die down as at the moment Leena Taparia and Asha Garg both are claiming themselves to be the president of the Ludhiana Mahila Congress (Urban). Effigies of state Mahila Congress president Malti Thapar were burnt the day Taparia was replaced with Garg.
However, on Tuesday, Garg was seen meeting workers in Ludhiana and she even met MP Ravneet Singh Bittu on Saturday. Garg said that she would soon be restructuring the district body.
Taparia, on the other hand, said, “Congress Mahila national president Sobha Ojha had allowed me to continue as president of Ludhiana Urban and I am continuing. I have emailed the high command that Asha Garg is also claiming to be president. Now the high command has to see to it.”
Garg’s supporters said that the controversy regarding the post seemed to have been solved and Garg was getting support from MLAs, leaders and workers as well. The supporters said that her camp was getting stronger and the Taparia camp was getting weaker.
Taparia had objected to the appointment of Garg and had even gone to Delhi to meet national president of Mahila Congress. Taparia said, “I had been reinstated the same day. Now the high command has to clear this confusion.”
