Taking a dig at the top Congress leadership over the issue of the relieving Kamal Nath as the in-charge of Punjab Congress, former BJP Punjab President and party’s national executive member Kamal Sharma, has said that due to lack of “able leadership”, the oldest political party (Congress), has now become a party of U-turns and that Rahul Gandhi will soon make ‘Congress mukt Bharat’ a reality.
Sharma said that initially Rahul said that Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC) President Capt Amarinder Singh was CM candidate but during his second visit, Rahul went completely silent on the matter.
“Not only other political parties but even the local Congress leaders were surprised over this U-turn. Likewise, sufi singer Hans Raj Hans was taken into party fold with allurement of sending him to Rajya Sabha but was not to be. Certainly, I cannot recall this kind of shabby treatment being meted out to a dalit leader in Punjab”, he stated.
Sharma said that now with Congress taking another U-turn on Kamal Nath, it reflected extreme crisis of ‘able leadership’ in Congress. “It seems that no discussions are held in Congress before appointments and party leadership lacks vision, required to prevent party from getting embroiled into future controversies.
Because of this problem, Nath has to quit the post within barely three-four days”, he said.
