Indian National congress party president Sonia Gandhi has reconstituted the congress working committee (CWC). As per the list, CWC has 22 members including Sonia Gandhi, Dr Manmohan Singh, Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra.
The party president has also released the permanent invitees list comprising senior congress leaders. MLA Fatehgarh Sahib Kuljit Singh Nagra is amongst the permanent invitees list of the CWC. Special invitees include 10 members of the congress.
Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Friday removed Ghulam Nabi Azad, Motilal Vora, Ambika Soni, Mallikarjun Kharge as AICC general secretaries, and reconstituted CWC and appointed P. Chidambaram, Randeep Surjewala, Tariq Anwar and Jitendra Singh as its regular members.
The new members in the Congress Working Committee (CWC), the party’s highest decision making body, will replace Faleiro, Vora, Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury and Tamradhwaj Sahu.
The reshuffle comes a month after a group of 23 party leaders, in a stunning act of revolt, wrote a letter to Sonia Gandhi calling for an overhaul of the party, internal elections and a “full-time, visible leadership”.The dissent letter was seen to be a indirect attack on the Gandhis, especially Rahul Gandhi, who quit as president last year over the Congress’s election defeat.
