Congress needs to get basics right, follow rules: Rahul Gandhi
New Delhi: Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi Friday told party leaders that he was in no rush to change the organisation and the party should instead focus on correcting the basic problems and ensuring that rules were followed.
Gandhi was talking on the second day of his first formal interaction with senior leaders after taking over as party's no 2. The meeting will continue February 4 as only 13 party secretaries could speak on Friday. The discussions at the meeting are expected to help Gandhi plan his new team to fight a slew of assembly polls this year and the next general elections scheduled in 2014.
Many secretaries started listing their individual grievances, saying they did not receive enough time or opportunity from the general secretaries and the ministers, and sought a quick resolution of their problems. Others opined that membership issues should be given weightage and said the party needs to explain the flagship welfare programmes of the government to people.
"Responsibility with accountability" was the common refrain of the speakers during the meeting which lasted over two hours as most secretaries spoke at length.
BJP leader Subramanian Swamy criticised the Aam Aadmi Party for taking support from the Congress. Swamy said that the AAP has committed suicide by opting for an alliance with the Congress.
