Sonia Gandhi fires 5 state chiefs, family loyalists hit back at Sibal, G23 invites more leaders to meet

The Congress failed to wrest the four BJP-ruled states and lost Punjab to the Aam Aadmi Party.

Congress president Sonia Gandhi has asked chiefs of its Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Goa and Manipur units to resign amid continued rumblings in the party following its crushing defeat in the assembly elections in these states.

The axe fell on the Congress's satraps, including its Punjab president Navjot Singh Sidhu, two days after the CWC brainstormed about the reasons for the party's debacle in the latest round of state assembly polls. The Congress failed to wrest the four BJP-ruled states and lost Punjab to the Aam Aadmi Party.

The sabre rattling in the Congress, meanwhile, intensified as Gandhi family loyalists lashed out at their colleague Kapil Sibal for his remarks that the Gandhis should step aside, accusing him of speaking the language of the BJP and the RSS.

Congress's G-23 leaders, meanwhile, have decided to meet at Kapil Sibal's residence on Wednesday to discuss the state of party after the election loss.

PTI has reported that the Group of 23 leaders said they have also invited Congressmen who don't constitute the bloc but feel changes are required, including at the leadership level, to revive its electoral fortunes.

The group, which has been critical of the leadership, had written to Sonia Gandhi in 2020 demanding an organisational overhaul.
