Abhishek Singhvi, a leader of the Indian National Congress (INC,) expressed his concern about the vacant post of the President of INC.
Ahead of the Congress Working Committee (CWC) meeting, Abhishek asked the senior leaders of the INC not to delay the selection of a new Chief of the INC.
The CWC is scheduled to conduct a meeting on the 10th of August and is expected to select a provisional chief.
After Rahul Gandhi, the former President of INC, resigned from the post, it has been a big question for the Party as to who the new chief will be.
While senior leaders approached the CWC to select Priyanka Gandhi, the General Secretary of the All India Congress Committee (AICC) incharge of Uttar Pradesh East, Rahul urged the Committee to select someone who is not from the Gandhi family.
Abhishek Singhvi took to Twitter and said, “On Saturday, a consensus builder party President of Congress must be selected. Slightest delay is not an option.” He further added, “In a lighter vein, I gave analogy of wise men of Vatican locked in a room indefinitely until they got a nomination! Subsequently, it has to be followed by full intraparty elections (sic.)”
The delay in selecting the Chief of the Party is harming the Party, which has the highest number of Members of Parliament (MPs) against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the Lok Sabha.
