Senior leadership Kapil Sibal and some other leaders have publicly criticized the party leadership. Khurshid said in an interview to ‘PTI-Bhasha’, “The party leadership listens to me. I have been given a chance, (people criticizing in the media) they have been given a chance. Where did it come from that the party leadership is not listening? ”When asked about the comments of Sibal and another senior leader P. Chidambaram on the Congress’s poor performance in the Bihar elections, Khurshid said that what he said, He does not disagree with her, but he questioned what is the need for this to go out and tell the media and the world that “we need to do this”.
Khurshid, who was permanently invited to the Congress Working Committee, said, “Every time an analysis is done, there is no quarrel about it. This time too it will be done. All these people are part of the leadership. The leadership will properly review what went wrong, how can we improve. This will happen in general, we do not need to talk about it publicly.
Asked whether some leaders are demanding full-time president for the party, Khurshid said that they should come forward and discuss it in the party’s talks. He said, “Look at our leader and say that you don’t look good without the label (president’s post).” After this, the leader will decide.
He targeted those who raised concerns over Sonia Gandhi being the interim chief for more than a year and asked who decided that a year is too long to be the interim chief. He said that if the process of selection of the new president is taking time, then there will be a reasonable reason behind it.
Khurshid said, “Nobody has gone anywhere, all are here.” Why is there only one label? Why are you insisting on this? The Bahujan Samaj Party has no president, the Left parties have no president, only the general secretary… Not every party can follow the same model.
He said that the party has a president in the form of Sonia Gandhi, even though he is the interim president. This is not beyond the constitution, it is not unreasonable. Khurshid said, “We are happy that we are working with it.” There is no leadership crisis in this. I am saying this with emphasis. ”
He said that the Election Committee is working on the selection of the president, which is taking time due to Kovid-19. Asked whether the Congress stands firmly behind Rahul Gandhi as its leader, Khurshid said, “I think anyone who is not blind is seeing that the people of Congress president Sonia ji and The former president is fully supporting Rahul Gandhi.
He said, “If those who question (on leadership) claim themselves to be democratic, then they should show the courtesy to include those of us who do not question (on leadership) and within the party we will take this decision Can they be more or us. Our only objection is that it is happening outside the party.
Khurshid recently said, “If voters are not giving importance to the liberal values that we are protecting, then we should be prepared for a long struggle rather than looking for shortcuts to come to power.”
When asked about this statement, Khurshid said that by shortcut he meant to abandon his ideology. He said, “Why should you give up your ideology.” If your ideology is not able to persuade voters to vote for you, you should either close your shop or you should wait. We are persuading voters, it will take time. ”
