The CWC has decided to take a call on the new Congress president during its next meet on August 10, the first after Rahul Gandhi stepped down from the position of the Congress president after the Lok Sabha elections.
To a query on what if the party decided on someone other than the two, Milind Deora said, "If the party collectively decides on someone else, I will respect its wisdom. But I will be surprised if the party or public disagrees with my assessment."
In the letter, eight leaders stated that the city unit will be in a “colossal mess” if Deora’s resignation is accepted. they added that party workers have full faith in Deora and that he should continue to head the unit.
"A resignation is given when someone wants to reject something. But here, a 'national' level position is being sought. Is this a resignation or a ladder to climb up to the top? The party should be cautious with such 'hard-working' people," Sanjay Nirupam said.
