Congress may announce a new team in UP
New Delhi: Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi Friday indicated that the party’s Uttar Pradesh unit could be dissolved and reconstituted, adding that party functionaries will be held accountable for the work entrusted to them in future.
Gandhi, who Friday met party MPs, legislators, union ministers and some former party MPs from Uttar Pradesh as part of stocktaking of the party’s poor performance in the assembly polls, told them that he will ensure that the party is strengthened in the state.
According to former party MP Rajesh Kumar Mishra, who attended the meeting, Gandhi asked the MPs if he should dissolve the state unit, and the response was in the affirmative.
“The response was unanimous yes. The MPs told him to reconstitute it in the way he wanted,” Mishra told IANS.
He said Gandhi also asked MPs if he should fix responsibility for the party’s poor performance.
“They (the MPs) said accountability should be fixed from today evening,” Mishra said.
Gandhi also told party leaders that indiscipline will not be tolerated and ministers should address concerns of workers.
