After a poor show in the assembly elections of five states, the Group of 23 of the Congress party, which poses a constant revolt to the party leadership, met on Saturday.
The leaders met at senior Congress leader Ghulam Nazi Azad's residence. Those attended include Congress deputy leader in Rajya Sabha Anand Sharma, party MPs Kapil Sibal, Manish Tewari and Akhilesh Prasad Singh, and former Haryana chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda. Some other leaders joined virtually.
The leaders in the meeting echoed their lack of faith in Rahul Gandhi. The leaders agreed that the party was staring at an “existential crisis” and it will sink further if credible corrective actions are not taken.
