Elect Congress chief by consensus: Ashwani Kumar

Gurdaspur, December 16

Former Union Law Minister Ashwani Kumar said the Congress did not need organisational polls and it could elect its president by way of consensus after taking various stakeholders into confidence.

He said such elections were always divisive in nature and hence should be avoided.

"Politics is neither about the idea of visceral animosities nor is it a slanging match among political rivals. The leader of the Congress,

as reminded by French statesman Francois-Rene Chateaubriand, should represent the spirit of our times. At a time when the party is riddled with dissensions and is facing grim challenges, the question of leadership should be settled by consensus after wide consultations. Organisational elections, as mooted by several party men, tend to divide rather than unite. At this stage, we can rely on the sagacity and political wisdom of Congress president Sonia Gandhi," he said. — TNS
