Letter ‘bomb’ from UP hits Congress, leaders urge Sonia to rise above family

Another letter ‘bomb’, this time from Uttar Pradesh, is set to cause a major embarrassment for the Congress.

Nine leaders expelled from the party last year in their letter to party interim president urged her to rise about the family and save the party before it slips into “history”.

In a veiled attack on the general secretary in charge of UP Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, the four-page letter urges Sonia Gandhi to rise above family and restore the democratic traditions of the party.

‘Save the party before its slips into history’

The letter, signed by former MP Santosh Singh, former minister Satyadev Tripathi, former MLAs Vinod Chaudhary, Bhoodar Narain Mishra, Nekchand Pandey, Swayam Prakash Goswami and Sanjeev Singh, says that the Congress is going through its ‘worst ever’ phase in Uttar Pradesh.

The leaders claimed in the letter that they have been seeking an appointment to meet Sonia Gandhi from the past one year but it has been denied.

“There is an apprehension that you are not being apprised of the prevailing situation by those in charge of state affairs. We had appealed against our expulsion which was illegal but even the central disciplinary committee has not found time to consider our appeal,” the letter says.

‘Priyanka does not bother to meet leaders outside her coterie’

They further claim that the party posts are currently being occupied by people who are working on a salary basis and are not even primary members of the party.

“These leaders are not familiar with the party’s ideology but are tasked to give direction to the party in UP,” the letter says.

The letter further says that these people are assessing the performances of those leaders who stood like a rock in the Congress during the 1977-80 crisis.

“Democratic norms are being thrown to the winds and senior leaders are being targeted, insulted and expelled. In fact, we were informed of our expulsion from the media which speaks of the new work culture in the state unit.”

Issuing a warning to the high command, they have said that if it continues to turn a blind eye to the prevailing state of affairs, the grand old party would hit rock bottom in UP which was once the party’s stronghold.
