“Losing in Bihar and by-elections big concern”
Azad said, “Defeat in Bihar and by-elections is a big concern for the party. I will not blame the national leadership for this. Until elections are held at the block, district and state unit level, we will not be able to hold our position in any state.” Can’t improve. This is what we have been demanding since day one. With this demand we are strengthening the hands of the leadership and the party. ”
Discord in congress
Azad raised questions on ‘five-star culture’ released in the party
Azad has also questioned the ‘five-star culture’ in the party.
He said that during the election campaign, Congress leaders, be it general secretary, secretary, state chief or star campaigner, should stop at the district or tehsil level instead of coming back from the helicopter to the capitals and stopping at the hotel.
He said that this happens in BJP too, but he has an army of grassroots workers. Congress has its shortcomings.
Do not consider those who demand change as rebel – free
Azad said that the leaders who are demanding a change in the party should not be treated as rebels.
He said, “We are not a rebel. We are demanding change. The rebel wants to remove the person in power and replace him. Those who demand change are not bothered about leadership. They want to strengthen the system. Let’s talk. We’re talking about strengthening the system, which needs change. ”
Azad said – nothing will change with change at the national level
Azad also said that leadership change at the national level will happen. A change in organization will happen only when the system at the state, district and booth level is strengthened. This reform has stopped after the death of Rajiv Gandhi.
Charges denied for not hearing the leadership
When Azad was asked if the top leadership was not listening to him, he said that it was not so.
Azad said, “We made five demands, including elections for the full-time president and Congress Working Committee. Two have been agreed. Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi wanted to do it in October, but this could not be possible due to corona virus . Elections at every level will only strengthen the party. ”
We do not have facilities like BJP- Azad
At the same time, when Azad was told by the BJP leadership about organizing political activities even in the midst of the epidemic, he said, “They have special aircraft. We do not have such facilities.”
